- In order to get your brother out of the kitchen so your human feeds you first, run down the basement stairs. Your brother will race down after you. As soon as your brother passes you and goes outside, race back up the stairs. You are now in first position for feeding.
- If your brother is lying on the bed next to your human, bark a warning while in your dog bed until your brother jumps off the bed, begins barking and goes out of the bedroom to investigate the situation. Jump into bed immediately next to your human.
- When your brother is blocking the basement door or the stairs to the dog beds, bark incessantly until your human comes to investigate the noise. Wait patiently until your human moves your brother then make a break for the door or the stairs.
