I found this video in the link provided in DoubleRR's Crufts' thread.

Clicking, targeting, shaping, marking behaviors...this is training at it's finest...and funnest :thumbs up.

Great, isn't she?

Now why doesn't she and trainers like her have their own shows on Animal Planet and National Geographic :shrug:? That's my idea of great training that any one can try at home :).

I'm impressed! :eek: Those dogs were amazing!

I'm picturing eight setters side by side standing erect on their hind legs, waving on command at passing cars! :cloud9: Think it's possible? If it is, do you guys want the video when it comes out? :laughing:

Absolutely :D...and autographed by all 8 too :laughing:.
