According to dog training websites, dogs can be taught a multitude of household chores.

It can take up to 20 minutes of practice per day to teach dogs basic obedience commands and up to 40 minutes per day to teach them more complex chores.

However, with patience and positive enforcement dogs can learn chores including how to fetch the newspaper, sort dirty laundry and close doors.
