Absolutely. One dog we had was so steady I used to have to mow around her when cutting the lawn. Current dog does not like lawn mowers but is otherwise immovable. When walking on a narrow path I often have to walk over her.

The big dog lies across the corner of the hallway and demands a belly rub tribute before allowing passage.

My old Lab x Kelpie used to follow at my heels wherever I went, even when I mowed the lawn.

D1 has two Newfies, one 7 years old and the other just a year. They trained the older one to ring a door bell when she wants to come in. The youngster has learned from the older one.

Hydromet, lol. Our daughter's German Shepherd doesn't ring the door bell, he simply opens the door. His paws are the size of hands and by observation he has learnt to depress the handle and pull or push. Lack of thumbs means he can't turn a key or a knob.

I was just digging out pics for a friend of mine..... These were my "Dugs" when I lived in Scotland in a former life:

And yes, I had all 3 setters at once, "Irish", "English" and working "Gordon", what the hell was I thinking :| :| :D :D

And later I just had a "show strain Gordon":

Faraday did some FastCAT this weekend. Notice how sleek and lacking in fluff she is (especially the tail and hindquarters), it all fell out after having puppies and needs to grow back.
