    that's awesome.

    i'm slowly warming my boss to the idea of me bringing a dog to work (with the hours, it's the only way i could care for one). if i can figure out a way to train him to find valves, it's sold. (there's gotta be some way to induce a tone through the wire path and solenoid that the dog can pickup on)

    How much for the dog?
  7. I know this is a beating but your post forced it out.

    When my dog Beau sees the remote come out he knows sprinkler heads are going to be popping up. Gets tense and as soon as he hears that transmitter beep takes off to find the zone. He'll hear the air hissing and stand right over the head ready to attack. I have no doubt that if I got serious I could train him to find hissing unseen pipe sounds or buried heads.
