I watch a whole lot of videos of dogs doing tricks. This just might be my favorite one so far. :)
Pretty funny, huh? Did anyone notice any training mistakes that Ralph's owner made? You can tell me in the comments section below!
Huskies are really good at imitating human voices. When I was a kid, my aunt had a dog named "Chica" who could say "Please," "Thank You" and "I Love You." This Husky, Mishka, demonstrates how she can say "I Love You" just like Chica used to.
Here is a dog learning how to Crawl using the "Touch" command.
Here's a Jack Russell Terrier with a great Army Crawl. Tomorrow, I'll post a lesson on how to teach it to your own dog.
Leslie Nelson from Tails U Win in Connecticut is one of my dog training heroes. She was one of the first trainers to use positive reinforcement for competition obedience. In this video, her Poodle, Lola shows off how helpful she can be around the house.
**Please note, Leslie has admitted to being a better dog trainer than video editor - the actual video is about a minute and a half long, the rest is just a blank screen. **
This video is six minutes long, and chock full of amazing tricks. The best part is how much fun both Dazzle and her trainer are having when they work together.
This is my colleague, Sarah Wharton's dog Sunny learning how to blow bubbles. Sarah started with a full bowl of water, but I like to start with an empty bowl and add a little water at a time so the dog can get used to the water.
If you would like to see a more step-by-step version, take a look at Dazzle the Border Collie. This video is pretty long, but it shows the trick starting with an empty bowl.
