Cherry the Dachshund can count her owner’s fingers.
Her base training was barking on command. She barks when her owner says “talk.” While most people train with the “speak” command, this owner opted for “talk” instead because so many other commands were s-words – sit, stay, sleep, spin, etc.
Started teaching her with counting fingers and then started with 2 fingers and said “talk, talk.” Then, this owner moved onto 3 fingers and said “talk, talk, talk,” and so forth.
Now, she can count without saying a word, well, except for “1” in the start of the video. 🙂
