Smart Dog Leans To Shake Bush To Get Frisbee By Copying Owner

A dog learned this clever technique to get her beloved frisbee out of a bush whenever it gets stuck after learning to copy its owner. Mabel, a two-year-old border collie, loves playing with her frisbee – but occasionally it gets stuck high up in the surrounding foliage. Owner Jennifer Vieira, 46, from Toronto, Canada, admitted she takes full responsibility for the frisbee occasionally landing in a bush in her backyard, claiming she’s "terrible at throwing." Each time, Jennifer would have to walk over the hedge and shake the frisbee down while Mabel patiently watched – but, one day, Mabel decided to copy her owner's lead and shook the bush herself. Jennifer, her husband and their 12-year-old daughter couldn’t stop laughing when they noticed Mabel do this of her own accord, so the next day, with her daughter's encouragement, Jennifer threw the frisbee in the hedge to see if Mabel could repeat the trick.
