I'm saving that to show the grands.... WOW... (I'm probably wrong, but those might be Border Collies.)

Those a Border Collies and thats a fairly new dog "sport" whose name slips my mind right now. i have seen several routines like this with various breeds of dogs. There is a group in Battle Creek, Mi who play with it.
That is probably the longest, most elaborate and perfectly timed one I have ever seen. Amazing! and the dogs look like they are having a wonderful time. Joan 8060

I am going to watch it, I have a McNab, similar to Border Collies. They are SMART!! When I first got her, she immediately opened my cattle gate and made her great escape...no big deal, opened the truck door and she ran and got right in...she will round up my GSs and neighbor hood children and keep them all together, so funny to watch..opens the fridge door..leaves her food alone until she is told she can have it. I am amazed by her every day...the things she picks up on her own. She also knows whistle commands, and is entering into agility courses this fall. I hope this fall.

WOW!! Great show and great music!!! :) Almost wore me out watching them. LOL

When we lived on the Navajo reservation, we took in a stray that was part border collie. Our oldest granddaughter was then about 3 years old. When she and the dog got to playing wild and crazy, sometimes the little girl would get just a little too wild and crazy. At those times, the dog would take our GD's shirt sleeve in her mouth and pull her over to a wall and lean against her!! We'd hear our GD's cry. . . "Sassy's got me again!"

PS. . . I'm not quite sure what the title of your thread means. Most people both on and off welfare would be delighted to be working, but there are many more willing workers than there are jobs.

Fabulous indeed! What training!

I do hope they've got good pet insurance, otherwise they'd be in dire straits if one strained a muscle after all that prancing about on their back legs. Then the pet police would have a ball, claiming neglect etc! ( Just kidding)

A super display.
