Grover’s Mailbox

mailboxIt’s time to check the mailbox to see what questions people have for me!

Dear Grover,

I know this can be a delicate subject, but I am going to ask it anyway. Why does my dog take so long to find a spot to go to the bathroom and then circle around before he does his business?

Best Regards,



Dear Joe,

Good question Joe. Well, dogs circle around because we have an instinct to be aligned with the earth’s magnetic field before we poop. In case you think I am pulling your leg, this is backed up by scientific research. Scientists watched 1,893 defections over a two-year period. (Everyone has to make a living somehow). So be patient with us when we go outside. Hope that answers your question.

The best,



Dear Grover,

How do I get my humans to give me more treats?




Dear Bailey,

You have come to the right teacher. There is an art to manipulating humans and I have mastered it. The first thing you do is go over and look at your human with those big puppy dog eyes. Next,  go into a down stay, because humans love it when you are acting like a good dog and they reward that. If that doesn’t work, keep staring at them until they feel guilty and give you a treat. It works for me every time.

Good luck,
