Peggy holds up cards with printed words one them, including paw, sit, and down. Coulter follows the commands on the cards. Peggy trains Coulter by first pairing verbal commands with the printed words. She eventually removes the verbal commands. Peggy says Coulter recognizes the shape of the words.
I thought it was amazing. I had no idea that a dog had that big of a brain, said Nicholas Belshan, a student in Peggys class.
Peggy says Coulter is a quick study.
I would say, within about two days he started to get the idea of what it was and then it took probably another two days to get it down pretty well, said Peggy.

If Ann had a dog...
The dog just needs to stay one lesson ahead of the students.
I have a Jack Russell, I believe it.
No matter what they do in life, from engineering to medicine, learning the Greek alphabet will be beneficial.
It’s all Greek to me.
I’d like to see Peggy present that lesson plan to a bunch of 6th graders — they would chew up that presentation and spit it out: Hand him a card that says BARK and see what he does.
He’s reading? Let me hear him say it.
JRandomFreeper’s grandkids 30 years from now: “Remember when grandpa used to make us read greek?...that was really lame”. ‘yeah, I remember. Pass that neutrino gauge. I think I’ve got the plasma wavelength adjusted so we’ll get another light year faster on the outbound’.
Teach them the Jewish Alphabet and to read and write Cantonese, if you want to prepare them for the real world future.
Latin the same.
I'm sensitive about Greek because my grandfather declared me 'illiterate' at age 10 because I could read Latin, Hebrew, French and Spanish (and of course, English), but not Greek.
He was old school. And harsh.
A whole lot smarter than today’s average politician. ...Who only knows how to respond to just a single word ( money).
But can he read cursive :-)
What a beautiful dog. I love the boy commenting about how it was “amazing”. Cute.
I love the boy commenting = I loved seeing the boy commenting
