Ah, thanks for the reply, i wondered what the other poster was referring to....thought i might learn something......(ha, i did snoop all thru your blogs, trying to find what you had mentioned, you are an excellent writer, btw!! Your dogs surely come alive in your writings!)
..see, i was wondering, if, like there was some kind of signal the dogs don't enjoy it or something that you were able to detect, then i was gonna re-watch the videos to see if i could spot whatever it was you saw, too. Guess i just misunderstood. I'm learning so much on this board! I am learning more and more about 'dog body language', and i THOUGHT i knew a lot about that, but i have lots more to learn!!
Yeah, to each his own! Collie man, this one IS safe=There are no costumes, and it WAS a fascinating video, i have no idea how people can teach all those things to the dogs! And so in-sync, with each other, wow. I can't even get my man to dance THAT insync!!! bah ha ha!!
I watched it twice, trying to detect the human's signals, they are very subtle to my untrained eye. Some cues i can see, some i cannot make out exactly how the human signalled the next move to the dog. (ha, guess she is lucky i am not her dog!! ha ha!!!):msngiggle:
Plus, i suppose, my dog jumps the gun on his tricks sometimes, and starts the next trick even before i say anything, so i have to mix them up (we only have a few to work with so far)...so maybe the dancing dogs also sort of already start to do the next thing partly out of habit as well as getting a cue i can't see. but it is amazing to me. Even the eye contact, is so cool....
