I had an overwhelming number of people send this to me or tell me about this yesterday, so I had to share it today. It is a really cute video and a great reminder of what a bit of training will accomplish with dogs. As a trainer it is always fun to watch acting and modeling dogs to see all of the things they are able to learn. But in this video, it is a lot of basic commands. There are a few advanced things, but for the most part they are simple commands and a bit of agility! But when you put it all together, it looks like this complex routine, I am certain it was much harder for the humans in this video than the pooches. The trainer on set was Lauren Henry, my hat is off to her for a job well done with the dogs and the humans. And let's not forget the one goat.
OK Go has decided after working with their four-legged acting counterparts to donate a portion of the profits made from this video to an animal rescue as many of these dogs were rescues themselves. Pretty amazing.
