Biddable: willing to carry out the wishes of others: amenable, compliant, conformable, docile, obedient, submissive, supple, tractable (Rogers II: The New Thesaurus, Third Edition 1995). These are qualities that have been highly prized by breeders of working dogs throughout the centuries. Careful breeding over thousands of years has cultivated dogs that have an inclination to both work with and take direction from man. If you are reading this book, you probably do not have one of these dogs. If you laughed when you read the definition of biddable you definitely do not have one of those dogs.
That last sentence just killed me!
