I’ve heard many cat owners say that the reason they prefer cats over dogs is because canines tend to lack personality and pretty much do whatever their owners say. Well, those people clearly haven’t tried to get a dog to sit, roll over, or do any other kind of trick.
Training a dog can be a lot of fun, but it’s definitely no walk in the park. It requires patience, a lot of practice and calm. You have to make sure the dog trusts you 100%, and that’s no small feat.
To be honest with you, I’m too lazy to teach my dog any fancy tricks, but there are some exceptional men and women out there who have made a career out of training canines. And many of them take part in an annual competition that takes place in the capital of Russia called Eurasia Dow Show.
The show features the very best owner-dog duos. The beautiful video below shows one of the most impressive performances during the 2012 edition, namely a musical freestyle where a dog owner and her trusted canine friend did a choreographed dance routine together.
I can only imagine how many hours of practice this must have required in order to turn out the way it did.
