Roadtrip to New York City
Follow us around in a vlog today, while we drive from Montreal to NEW YORK CITY! We take the girls on a roadtrip down to the big city :D
We just love New York and we are in awe with the hustle and bustle each time. Love the vibe!
For those who are wondering, we stayed at La Quinta Elmsford. It's dog friendly and off the actual island, which we personally love. It's calmer for the girls and we're about 40 minutes from downtown. We just drive in when needed :)
Thanks for watching, we woof you!

DOG IQ TEST
How smart are Herky & Milton? We are testing our dogs' intelligence today with a dog IQ test featuring Herky vs Milton!
We compiled six challenges from two different tests we found online for this video! Each of the challenges is tested on 3 points, for a total of 18 points. We invite all of you to put your pup to the test and share their score with us :D Here are the challenges:
1- Towel challenge
Place a towel or blanket over your dog's head. Time how long it takes for your dog to get the towel off his or her head.
3 points - if it takes less than 15 seconds
2 points - if it takes between 15 and 30 seconds
2- Treats under cups
Lay out 3 bowls or cups on the ground. Place a treat under the cup while your dog is looking. Divert your dog's attention for a few seconds. When your dog gets back to the cups, do they remember where the treat is?
3 points - straight for the treat
2 points - checks another cup before getting the correct one
1 point - checks both wrong cups before getting the correct one
3- Furniture challenge
Find a piece of furniture in the house where your dog can fit his or her paws under, but not their snout. Place a treat under the furniture. How does your dog retrieve the treat?
3 points - less than 60 seconds with paws only
2 points - less than 60 seconds with nose and paws
1 point - gives up
4- The Wall
Find pieces of cardboard wide enough to create a wall, and tall enough to prevent your dog from looking over it. Place the cardboard in order to get a slit about 3 inches wide. While your dog is looking, throw a treat through the opening. How does your dog retrieve the treat?
3 points - walks around the wall in 30 seconds or less
2 points - walks around in 30-60 seconds
1 point - tries to climb through or bulldozes through
5- Leash Challenge
Pick up your dog's leash at a time of the day which is not a usual walk time. How does your dog react?
3 points - immediately gets the hint / gets excited
2 points - you need to walk to the door for him/her to get the hint
1 point - does not understand
6- Treat under towel
Place a treat under a blanket or towel. How long does it take for your dog to retrieve the treat?
3 points - less than 30 seconds
2 points - 30-60 seconds
1 point - fails
How did your pup score? :D Remember that if your dog scores low, it does not mean he or she is not intelligent. This challenge is for fun only and does not test everything. Besides, no need to be intelligent to give kisses and cuddles ;)
Thank you guys for reading!
We woof you,
