Dogs can’t count! Beau will prove you wrong. This Labrador Retriever can count, add, subtract and, maybe, someday he’ll do Calculus! After this pup caught on that doing math equaled treats, Beau learned to count by the number of treats waiting for his barky answer.

Beau’s owner, David Madsen, noticed how smart beau was when he was just a pup. The dog would figure out ways to not get caught through intricate games. Madsen realized Beau’s intelligence and put it to good use. If you ask Beau what is the result of three dogs leaving the park when there were six, he’ll answer, “Woof, Woof, Woof.”
