piano playing dogs!!! the training involved in this would be unreal!!!
Wow! I wasn't at all sure what I would see.
Wow that is fantastic!
AMAZING!!!! I can't believe that the dogs play the same notes as the owner does!!!! It requires persistance and patience to train them to do that!!! WOW!!!!
OH MY GOD.....
That was definately THE most amazing thing I have ever seen!!!!
OHMIDAWG!!! I'M TOTALLLY FLIPPED OUT!! Too cute, so fun to watch those dogs! wow.
Do you think the cue for a particular key is the note she plays? I wasn't sure as sometimes the dogs play several notes in a row .
I think the dogs were expecting a particular note sometimes - like near the end the dog on the left is waiting with it's paw in the air. They must have learned the sequence as well as the cues...
i thought same as you, Rdog, i thought the one dog was trained to hit the low note way down at end of keys, and ONLY that note, that dog plays no other note than the lower note, seems like....
It's fascinating video.
it also sort of looks like the woman leans a bit over, to further help signal the brown dog that it's his turn, but, i could be wrong.(?) Maybe the dogs listen for just the right note from her, to hit "their" spot on the keyboard.
my dog is trained to bark if i lift my eyebrows during a card trick, so maybe there could be more than just than the notes being played, being used by the dogs as cues?? it's hard to know for sure.
also adorable, is, at one point, the brown dog is getting to play HIS note a few times in a row, and then, the golden dog briefly scootches down to the low notes, as if to get on on that low-note action, too!!??
i can't stop watching it now...
i do have a keyboard.........
If you do try and teach this to buddy be sure to film it I can't begin to imagine the amount of hours it took to teach the dogs that. Incredible.
but i can not play any harmonica or flute,
but, i bet i could teach Buddy to hit one end of the keyboard with his left paw,
and the other end with his right paw.
i can picture myself teaching him to both listen for a certain tone out of a harmonica, as well as look to my facial expression, or my hand/finger position, or my leaning, to help him know which paw to do.
but lol, there IS indeed a mile or two, between picturing something, and doing it!!!!
Too true so many tricks I picture but somehow they never come off. I'm terrible at finishing tricks that need persistent training.
I don't think I'll be able to teach this to Shivon too soon.... Looks complicated...
But LOL Tigerlily, I can TOTALLY see Buddy doing that!!!!
This is why Tigerlily NEEDS that camera... RIGHT???????
You're right, that IS incredible!!
