Four-year-old German shepherd, Anya, loves family game nights with her owners to help pass time during lockdown. Anya uses her teeth to gently pick up game pieces and appropriately placing them in games ranging from Jenga to Tic-Tac-Toe.

John Knoble and his wife, Lori, got Anya when she was 12-weeks-old from a local breeder. 

Lori said, “Anya never fails to amaze us…She would help remove clothes from the dryer, bring us the T.V. remote, and everything.”

The Cleveland, Ohio couple discovered Anya’s gift for Jenga back in April when the couple was looking for ways to entertain themselves during quarantine.

Lori remarked, “There she was, ready to play along—without any training, she seemed to just figure out what to do.”

“She saw me playing, went to grab a block, and managed to keep the tower upright—all so casually.”

The couple made a video showing Anya grabbing a loose block and pulling it out gently with her teeth, then placing it on the coffee table and waiting for her opponent to go.

Truly a clever dog, Anya continues to master games helping the Knobles to cope during this pandemic.
