Greatest American Dog Recap – Week 6
This week’s challenge was an IQ test or the closest thing to it for a dog. There wasn’t much preparation for this challenge.

The dog that could find the treats in the shortest amount of time would win the dog bone suite and a leg up in the elimination challenge. Take a look:

This week’s elimination challenge was based on intelligence. The idea was to depict a painting that described the relationship between the owner and dog. The only catch was the dogs had to do all the painting. Using techniques like nudge, back up, roll over, touch and any other commands that might help get paint onto a canvas. I put peanut butter in the end of a roller and had Presley lick the handle, pushing the roller across the canvas. Worked great for me, take a look:
