Never thought I'd run an ad on my blog. But this is just so ... satisfying. And quite pretty. My favorite part is when the dog's feet leave the ground.
I laughed SO HARD when I first saw this-- Just picturing my dog in super slow-mo... eyes all googly when he sees the treat, treat bonking him in the nose as he misses catching it in his mouth, googly eyes following treat as it flies away, frantically chasing after treat... I must do this!
Huh. I wonder if sight hounds or retrievers do better than other breeds--how effective have breeding/domestication programs been?
My own dogs, a Pyr and a Newf, have virtually no eye/mouth coordination and low prey drive. They can catch dead chipmunks, but that's about it.
