I recently took it upon myself to join the group of people that are seriously confusing their pets with this “magic trick”. Basically you take a large blanket, stand in an entryway, get your pet’s attention, hold up the blanket to cover yourself and then hide behind the wall of the entryway, dropping the blanket and revealing to your pet that you’ve “disappeared”. I love my dogs, but I had to try this.
My youngest dog (Leeloo) was so nervous that I was going to cover her with the blanket that she peaced out before I could even start this illusion. My other two dogs however reacted about as I would have expected. Confused, and in my dog Rock-it’s case, a little upset.
