Question
Hi,
My question is: does your dog "know" you can do stuff like turn lights on and off and drive a car?
Thank you

Answer
Hi Tom,
Yes, dogs learn quickly and if they see you do something several times, they realize you are the one doing it.  Here is a Westie that learned if he rang a bell his owner would let him out.  He has learned who opens doors in his house and how to get them to do it.
