Amazing Greyhound

Some folks were aware of the training potential of greyhounds even years ago. This is a video of Jay Sisler and his amazing dogs. He is most famous for his Australian Shepherds and is a well known figure amongst Aussie fans as he was important to the breed. He and his dogs performed an incredible show. The Aussies in this video are very well trained and are able to do tricks I would not have thought are possible. Now for my greyhound fans, after 4 minutes, a greyhound makes an appearance in the show for a couple of minutes. The greyhound is a huge jumper and does some astonishing tricks.

That is some AMAZING footage! I alternated between cracking up and being in awe of the training that must have gone into the performances.

If you would have ever told me that a greyhound (or any dog) could do somersaults, skip, and walk on hind legs, I've had said you're crazy - but seeing is believing.
