That is is a living creature not a toy, it will likely have hip problems about halfway thu its natural life and will require surgery. Dogs are intelligent but not so much as they know when they're keepers are just taking p## out of them.

You see a lot of these 'click-bait' types of videos posted on FB and the like so I wasn't expecting much, but wow! That was very impressive and hat's off to Jumpy and the owner/trainer!

I remember being amazed at a skateboarding dog on a halfpipe I frequented when I was younger, but this little guy is something else

Well from the dogs body language you can tell he is enjoying himself and not doing something he doesn't want to do so I can't see any major problem with this

This dog makes my dog look like she's mentally challenged. She's not the brightest dog, but she makes us laugh. This dog must have once been a human and is now reincarnated as a dog.

I agree about the dog enjoying itself but it wont enjoy the pain when its hips are ruined from being taught to mis-use its hind legs

This owner/dog has more videos than this one. I have seen one that I watched at least 20 times, I was so amazed at what he could do!! I used to have it saved but can't find it now.

This breed of dog is extremely smart as well.

S&F for the share and I agree with another poster.... This dog makes mine look like he should be on disability, but we all love him more than most people we know, anyway.



Animals are amazing!

Hello,

I appreciate your concern and to a degree you do have a point. However, with owning many working sheep dogs here on our farm they get to half way through their natural life and are to " worn out " to keep up the place. They are then replaced with younger ones. The older ones become family pets for our family and are very healthy indeed.

Being working dogs they suffer all kinds of challenges, being kicked by sheep/cows etc, jumping barbed wire fences, and working in extreme conditions.

But they love it.

My point? They are happy at what they do, as is the smart dog in the OP.

Better a dog dying a happy life than dieing a long unhappy life.

That was such a treat to watch OP, thank you. My dogs are smart in terms of sheep/cattle herding, obey voice and whistle commands. Though, not as smart as this guy, and he just loves it.....look at him


Many thanks for sharing.

Spiro

And thats why Dogs are superior to cats. LOL

Damn I cant even imagine how many hours this guys spent with that dog. I have it hard enough trying to teach a dog the basic stuff. I cant even imagine how hard this was. Thats awesome though!

Nice.

These are smart dogs and he's very well-trained, obviously. Excellent video!

I will bet you dollars to donuts that he's not responding to the verbal cues so much as hand signals and other body language. If you watch carefully, some of his behaviors don't really "fit" with the verbal cues. Nevertheless, he's very cool and has a great trainer.

That is not how hip dysplasia is assessed. It can only be effectively done by x-ray and utilizing a special x-ray machine at that. The vet looks at how the femoral head engages the acetabulum - ball and socket joint of the hip. Future issues with dysplasia can be determined in advance by x-ray and not by a vet looking at how a dog walks or even by manipulation of the joint. That would just be an "educated guess" by the vet.

Yeah man, only way to train dogs to this degree is through hand gestures or body language ques combined with verbal commands.

To them its all noise except specific sounds like clicking, shhing, or snapping. Words we think are being understood are just being heard for specific noises they can hear clearly and they then repeat learned actions upon those prompts. SIT, is "SSSSS"...law down is "OOOOWWWNN",.....ect.

Hand gestures help them distinguish between similar sounds like "sit" and "stay" which sound similar to them.....

Agreed. I speak English to my dogs all the time and they respond, but it's because they know maybe one word in a sentence and/or they read my body language and actions and pick it up from there. They're SO sensitive to body language because that IS their language.

I've done the experiment a few times of not speaking to them AT ALL during an entire day. I take them out, to the vet, for walks and never say a word and they act exactly the same as if I was running my mouth all day. LOL

Just a word on hip dysplasia. My dogs parents were tested (x-rays) and graded for their hips. Dysplasia is mostly hereditary but sometimes environmentally caused. Usually, the environmental part is when they're puppies (under 2 years). You don't want your puppy to run or jump too hard because if their formative hips are damaged, dysplasia can result.

If a dog doesn't have hip dysplasia by two years old, he's probably not going to "get it" from doing tricks like this. If his hips were painful, he would balk at doing it. This dog seems very spry and happy to do the exercises, so I wouldn't worry about dysplasia.

I would play verbals games with my dog like 'do....you....want... (ears prick up and head tilts)...to...go...for....a...WALK?

Loved that game. Always built up some anticipation before a car ride or a walk.
