    Default What's the time?

    Do your dogs know the clock?

    Nero does. I'm working from home a few days a week and could set the clock to his sleeping habits. They'll get a walk in the morning and then pretty much sleep all day. But at 4pm on the spot, day by day, a black lab nose nudges my right elbow to remind me that he now slept enough and wishes to be entertained. He will give me another 30 mins or so to finish whatever I was doing but then he'll come back and turn it up a notch. Are your dogs creatures of routine too? Rox isn't at all... she just goes with the flow

    My dogs tend to go with the flow I'd say. Koda knows that any time between 5-6pm means dinner for him, but he won't hassle me for it. He also knows that around about 4pm is when we play fetch/zoomies, but he's pretty chilled if i'm not on time Dodge has no routine, she just does whatever she wants, haha!

    Think my boy just goes by the minute, doesn't really have a schedule. He knows after dinner it's usually walk time, so he'll stick around for that, but dinner can be anywhere from 5:30 to 7:30, so not really any time routine. He sleeps in my room on his bed and occasionally he'll wake me up needing to go out, but most of the time he'll just lay around until he sees me waking up, even if it's not until 9am.

    Yep, I swear my boy can read the digital clock. He knows he isn't supposed to get in bed with us until the alarm goes off at 6am. Every morning at 5.58am he starts stalking the bed and waiting to be invited in. He also knows other 'times', like dinner time, zoomie play time etc, but I think that is more the routine. Oh and btw, we have block out curtains in our room and they really block out the sun, so its not the sun rising that wakes him

    Newfsie... is that 5.30 ?!?!?!
    At that time I'm incapable of loving anyone. Not even my dogs.

    I'm sure he could learn to read the clock if he wanted to, after all it's about as big as him

    Hah! 4.30pm. No black nose under my elbow. Snoring sounds from the sofa instead. Our rather long 2 hour walk this morning clearly threw him..

    Mine has been carrying on like a pork chop since about 4:30pm despite it pissing down with rain for quite a bit of that time.

    It's now 6:15pm and she's yelling at me from the kitchen cos it's dinner time - except -

    she's early.
