Greatest American Dog: Would Your Dog Do Star's Trick?

Greatest American Dog: Would Your Dog Do Star's Trick?

Before I get into recapping the latest episode of the Greatest American Dog, I wanted to see if I'm the only one feeling a tad inadequate about my pup's training. Last night showed Bill performing this silly trick with his adorable dog, Star.

OMG! I remember the 20 minutes I spent one night trying to teach North to balance a yum on his nose. Now maybe it was just his smooshy, but not only couldn't I get him to balance anything, he kept tilting his mouth up as I got near his face with the treat. Silly pup. Would your dog ever do anything like this?

My dog, Max, a year old German Shepherd can hold it on his nose. But I didn't think in a million years he could wait even a millisecond if it was already in his mouth. But I just tried it now, and after about five minutes and almost a whole container of treats he's starting to get it. He actually held it in his mouth for a good five seconds! I'm so proud of him!

Is there a Bill and Star fan club? Because I want to join it. I love them so much on the show! Star is so smart.

My dog doesn't even wait until I take the treat out of the box... She grabs the box off the counter... hows that for smart on her part and dumb on mine?

I haven't trained them to do this, but I'm pretty sure my "non-food-driven" dog would pick it up real quick. The other one doesn't have a shot though

I've never seen a dog hold a treat in his mouth and just let it sit there, like that dog. I've seen the treat on the nose/muzzle...but I thought this was really cute and amazing (or am I just easily amused??) Last night was the first time I watched the show btw. I wish I would have started from the start.

Cuba is smart but he is a chow hound so the chances of him waiting to eat a treat would have to be when hell froze over. I worry when he doesn't want to eat a treat.

Oliver will stand up for every "cookie" that you give him, but that's the most you'll get outta him!

I think that was my favorite part of last night's episode. Either that or when Bill and Star won the first challenge :)

I hope I can teach my pup this! She is so smart and calm...she is only 9 weeks right now tho so we are starting to work on lay down (she can sit!). We want to take it one trick @ a time we don't over-load her.

As much as I love Ruby, she's just not very smart.
