In the US, we often call a clever person a fox. We also say"that person is dumb like a fox" Meaning the person pretends to be unintelligent to serve his own purpose while he is really intelligent. The word clever has a conotation that goes beyond smart or intelligent. It encompassses a person with both brains and the savvy or ability to use it in a way that is quick, witty and endearing.

What works for my dogs is something I learned from a dog psychologist a number of years ago and it is to use a certain word/phrase the first time your puppy/dog goes to the bathroom. For example I always use 'clever boy/clever girl' and never use this phrase at any other time. When I get to the spot I want them to go to the bathroom I keep repeating 'clever boy' or 'clever girl' (I have one of each) and it works every single time. You just have to pick a word or phrase that you would not use for anything other than asking your dog to go to the toilet. Each time they do this, really emphasise the use of the word or phrase and keep repeating it to them in a loving and praising way. Dogs just love to please their owners so if they know you are really pleased by what they have done, they will repeat it whenever you give that command (providing they need to go of course!)
