Lately I've been wondering how I could train our doggie to do house hold chores. He insists on following me from room to room through out the day. My constant companion as I go about cleaning and doing laundry. And I often find myself saying to him "Unless you have learned how to fold (clean toilets, empty the dishwasher, make beds), I really don't need the company".
It makes sense to me. If he's going to continually be under foot, I think the least he could do is help out. It just seems fair.
