A client of ours once told me that he keeps his Gordon in the garage when no one is at home. Apparently, the dog was getting lose every day and the client was blaming his kids for leaving the garage door open. The kids swore it was not them. Then, one day when the family was home, they heard the garage door open. Upon further investigation, they found that their Gordon had learned how to jump up and "paw" the button to open the garage door. Yep, Gordons Setters, are pretty darn smart!
