The control over the dog is pretty impressive. But I'm also thinking that its a little cruel. What did she have to do the dog for it to be so obedient?

As for the counting... I'm not convinced. I can't believe that a dog will have the ability to do multiplication and subtraction and have such good understanding of english. Its either getting signals from somewhere or its been taught a few commands like "2 times 4" means tap the table 8 times. Or we have some video editing going on there.

Dogs hear what we can't, so they can listen their master in ultrasound range for example

#(removed comment) The first part was, but we are more concerned about the second part. The math is impressive for the dog.

#4 I think you're onto something there. That would be pretty easy to do. Also, the handler could be using signals that are so quiet they'd be inaudible to humans, but within the dog's range of hearing.

The dog is taping until it get's a signal to stop. But maybe it's owner does not know.
You can read here how it is done:

#7 Actualy in this case the owner knows exactly what she's doing. I heard someone talk about a book once (an old book) for a boy that had the talent to deceive people in different ways, or something like that, and that he have trained his dog to yap when he is looking at it. And the book is realy old, obviously enough to be forgoten.
