Maggie the Jack Russell Terrier can count!
Check out the video below.
Maggie was featured on Animal Planet for her counting skills.
Actually she does seem to be quite good at math without any obvious “prompting” from her trainer.
Of course, there may be other not-so-subtle clues that the dog can sense, but still… it’s quite interesting how well trained “Maggie the Math Dog” is!
Is Maggie a fraud?
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
