Apart from the puppy mayhem --
well, pups will be pups --
I believe that sort of canine thinking is often called
'problem-solving,'
as when your Cookie figured out
how to get into the compost containment.

As for instance,
some breeds of terriers,
who don't give much thought to certain things in life,
but who become monomaniacal when given certain puzzles to solve --
a combination of
problem solving and prey drive, I guess.
