Time flies when you’re having fun. We often feel that it seems that time goes by too quickly whenever we’re doing something that we enjoy. Whenever we have fun, we always wish that the moment would last a little longer. This statement doesn’t only apply to humans. Dogs, too, can sometimes feel this way.
A dog owner decided to take her dog, Jax, out for a walk and visit the nearby dog park. Dog parks are perfect for walking dogs because they get to make new friends, and they also get to run around without being on a leash. Dog parks are also great because it serves as a way for dog owners to help their pet dogs exercise and release extra energy.
However, Jax had a little too much fun at the dog park that she decided she wanted to stay a bit longer. When it was time to go home, Jax’s owner attached the leash on her so they could start their walk home. Jax reluctantly headed towards the exit with her human when she thought of a strategy that will enable her to stay a little longer in the park to play with her friends.
While walking towards the dog park gate, Jax plopped down and refused to move. She thought that playing dead is an excellent strategy for her human to let her play a little longer. And, being a full-grown Rottweiler meant that Jax’s owner wouldn’t be able to carry her all the way home. Jax’s owner tried to walk back to encourage Jax to stand up. The strategy seemed to work, but as soon as Jax’s human turned and walked towards the gate, Jax did her stunt that involved lying down on the grass and refusing to move.
Jax’s owner thought that maybe Jax would follow her when she walked back alone. Unfortunately, this didn’t work. Jax just stared at her walking away. Jax apparently called her bluff, and it seemed as though Jax knew she wouldn’t leave him alone in the park.
Eventually, one of the dog owners in the park helped out by bribing Jax with treats to follow him towards the exit. Another dog also helped, which made Jax feel a lot more comfortable walking to the exit.
Jax definitely knows how to get what she wants. It’s unbelievable just how smart dogs can become by doing what Jax did. Here’s the hilarious video of how Jax refused to walk back home after spending all afternoon playing in the park and making new friends.
