    I don't know about your dog but I'm pretty sure about my dogs opinons on this one: I never challenge them for the tastiest bits of food... and what's tastier than a rotten, stinking, maggott filled bone that has been 'ripening' in the compostheap for a few days before being dug up again? *yumm*

    My doberman, Gigha will give me The Look. This involves standing as erect and beautiful as possible and S T A R I N G at me. This means: I am ready for bed, put me there.

    This is different to the standing by the door cause I want out look and from the drop the ball at my feet so that you will throw it for me look.

    It is a tad freaky, I feel like little Damien will walk in the room behind her at any moment!

    So I make her wait for a few minutes and then I duly put her to bed.

    ChoppaChop, this makes me realise just how well trained my dog has me... He likes his porterhouse :s That and roast chicken. And cheese.

    I prefer to look at it as a partnership that is working really well. Riley has his specific chores and responsibilities - as he sees it, but then so do I - to keep the relationship working well on a daily basis.

    He is extremely protective of me when we are out and about - not snarling or any noise - just by his body language and where he places his body. Dog's ability to read body language is far superior than ours.

    If he is just a little suss of who we are meeting up with, he will show this by standing partially or totally in front of me. If he is really concerned, then he starts pushing me away. When he is happy about the people - he is a totally different pup.

    I love the bond that develops between us and our pups over time. I don't class it as them training us. It is just the normal give and take in a successful working partnership.

    So if pup likes porterhouse steak and so do you - what is the problem ?

    My favourite is when Banjo gets a prickle in her foot. She will come and sit down in front of me and hold her sore paw up. Then acts like an excited puppy when I've pulled the prickle out. It always melts my heart.

    RileyJ, what breed is your dog? You've probably mentioned it somewhere on the forum but I can't remember what it was

    Hi 'grevillea47',

    Riley is a nearly (in Feb 2013) 6 year old male de-sexed GSP. I got him when he was 2 years old.

    I put up a thread a while ago about GSPs:

    http://www.dogforum.com.au/my-dog-gr...-breeders.html
    I have also put up some pics in the album area. So hopefully you will get some idea of what the breed is like.

    I got my first GSP in 1976 and so have loved the breed for a long time !
