You have to be smarter than the dog
My dad used to always tell me, "Brian, you have to be smarter than the dog."
He told me this when I was about 5 and he was still telling me 20 years later. The first time I heard this remark it puzzled me. Even then I knew people were smarter than dogs. After all, we went to a real school where the teacher made us sit up straight, pay attention to her and sometimes give us a gentle reminder that she was the boss. All dogs got to do was go to obedience school.
