Here’s a real weekend treat. Spend a few minutes with Sufi the Bear.
But Pam, this is a dog blog. Why the bear video?
- Bears and dogs share a common evolutionary ancestry that is closer than that of cats and dogs.
- The video shows many examples of clicker training, a common technique in dog training.
- Sufi the bear’s trainers are from Talented Animals, the group that trained the dogs in the Ok Go White Knuckles Video which I loved enough to post about 3 times.
- Here’s the original video in case you missed it.
- The link to the story behind the Ok Go video.
- And a picture of Honey watching the video intently.
- The Sufi video has more dogs than you can shake a (target) stick at.
- Once you see that a bear can be taught to walk loosely on leash, you’ll be inspired to get working with your dog.
- Oh, and Sufi the bear is just too freaking cute for words.
Yes, I know it’s 14 minutes long. But what else are you going to do with that time? Watch a Seinfeld rerun?
Oh, and don’t forget to stop by the Talented Animals blog to look around. They don’t post often but when they do publish, the post is thought provoking. This is one blog worth adding to your feed reader.
