Dogs learn in their sleep...

At least I think so. Sunday, Buffy gave me the hardest time on a casting wagon wheel drill. I threatened to sell her. Yesterday she would not take a correct cast. Both days I struggled with her. Today, a casting wagon wheel drill and she gave me perfection.

I think she "thought it over" in her sleep (form of Zen). This has happened before with other tasks.

Dogs absolutely experience latent learning. It's why after training its recommended to put them up for 30 minutes or so to absorb what they just did.

Agree! I've seen it play out in many different situations, probably most frequently during FF.
