A simple task is easy to perform for the animal and uses its natural talents in a way the animal can understand. An animal may only know 5 simple tasks for each point of REA (a dog has 2 or 3 points). An animal can only learn 2 complex tasks for each point of REA. Complex tasks are any task that takes more than a minute and has multiple objectives (such as training a monkey to sneak into a house and steal gems and other shiny objects). All simple and complex tasks must be approved with the game keeper.
