Channing really is quite remarkable...he went to puppy training classes when he was little and learned the basics, but he sure does have a few tricks up his sleeve.
While living with my roomie (E$ as I refer to her as), we decided to teach him something a little more fun than just your normal sit/stay/speak/lay down and roll over (all of which Channing thinks are elementary).
So what better than "Spank the booty"
I know this sounds bad, but he merely sits down beside you and you place your hand around your hip area and say "spank the booty", I think he thinks he is giving you some different kind of "high five" or a really odd hand shake (with your booty?!?)...but it's comical and better than the average trick!
He can also close doors...totally awesome! See below
I really need to teach him to open the fridge, grab me a beer and bring it to me...that'll be the day!
