How well do you know your dog?
Take my human mum. She thinks she can read my every mood, whim and need. "Time for tea, Gracie," she chirps at exactly 5PM. Then, when I gobble up all my food, she assumes I was hungry. Right? Not exactly. You see, like most dogs, I'm hungry all the time. All the time. I have no concept of "breakfast" time or "tea time" (the early evening meal British parent feed their kids, in case you didn't know).
I pretty much experience the world low to the ground via my nose.
Try getting down on all fours and poking around your kitchen for an hour. Or, head outside and do the same. Tell me if it doesn't put you at an advantage.
