Smart Dogs With Polite Table Manners (Adorable Video)

Dogs are very happy when they have a job to perform and they are paid well for their work. The beautiful Goldens in this video not only take a moment to pray while grace is said for their meal, but they have a job to do after they finish eating. They are continuously wagging their tail throughout and it is obvious that they enjoy earning their dinner.

The Association for Professional Dog Trainers states, “Training provides dogs with the basic good manners we all want—from polite greeting when guests arrive, to walking nicely on the leash, to coming when called.” Now we can add to that list… saying grace and cleaning up after themselves.” Good dogs!

This is a cute video, although I was worried the bowls were going to slide off the other side of the table.
Great job, guys & gals

I think the third one is a newcome, he is not that well trained and heț s even raising his head up during prayer! ;)

P.S. Is there any chance my cat gets trained like that?
