It can be nice to see small dogs take on cute and harmless challenges for fun. It helps showcase their talents and personality. Challenges can also serve as a form of discipline training for them.
The television network SBS TV has a show on their YouTube channel that features dogs owned by their employees. The dogs are urged to perform small harmless challenges that showcase their intelligence. A recent episode of the show featured a poodle named Habong.
Habong is a very calm and non-reactive dog who rarely barks. The owner joked that her dog only barks at her supervisor. She was looking forward to how far her dog will advance through the challenges.
The first challenge required Habong to hold an egg using her mouth without dropping it. She had to hold it for a few seconds to succeed in the challenge. Unfortunately, it didn’t did go well because she showed no interest in the egg.
The next challenge involved jumping over a row of toilet paper. After each successful jump, a stack of toilet paper is added to make the jump harder. Since Habong is a small dog, the maximum number of stacks of paper was three.
She jumped over the first and second stack without a problem. However, the final stack was too high for her, so she failed the challenge. The owner was allowed to remove one toilet paper roll on the third stack to create a small opening, but the result was the same.
Failing two consecutive challenges was not impressive. However, Habong’s owner knew that there was one challenge that she can succeed in. The final challenge proved to be an easy task.
For the last challenge, Habong needed to remain in her owner’s arms for 10 minutes. If she tries to squirm or if she wiggles her way out, she fails. This is the challenge that Habong managed to complete without a problem. She even stayed in her owner’s arm for hours.
The filming session concluded with Habong winning one challenge out of three. It’s not the best score on the show, but at least she and her owner had fun. The episode proved to be satisfactory for everyone involved.
