    Not to be negative nelly but I'm going to go with the voice commands were dubbed in after the video was shot. But that's just my humble opinion.

    Either way, it's still a very cool dog!!!

    Even if it was edited etc, its still the dangedist thing I've seen.

    Great effort to edit that. There are some skips. But still pretty skillful

    I used to think bird dogs in the $5-8K range was flat out LUDACRIS!!! That is until I saw these dogs work. WOW, is all I had to say and I had to take back every word I ever said about these high priced pups.

    To watch a dog and his handler work at some of these trials was down right unbelievable. It was almost as if the were reading the others mind. If anyone ever gets a chance to watch these types of dogs in action I can assure you it will be worth every second you spend watching. They are truely increadable and you have to witness it to truely appreciate it.

    That's why I quit dogs. After years of developing a relationship they die. Decided to not do that any more. When I get a bit longer in the tooth I'll get another that will out live me. He can then live with the heart ache.

    I've had several good dogs. Right now I have a Miniature Australian Sheppard that is in her 'Golden Years'. She is 18. I have another Aussie that travels with us to keep her company. The Old Dog has worked in 42 States. And we have had a real good time together. She had a Heart Attack in 2002, and the Vet told me she would not make the Holidays. That's when I got the other dog. That was 8 years ago, and she is still with us.
    I will always have a dog. Your life is not complete, with out the Love of a dog.

    Looks like a Heeler/Border Collie mix. I still miss by Heeler...damn smartest dog I ever had. Tough to train because they are so damn smart. You always need to keep it interesting and the tougher the game the more they like it. Nothing more destructive than a bored heeler.

    Now for a bird dog...give me a rock head every time. They are easy to train, don't think for themselves and they have long memories. I find the smarter the dog the longer it's going to take me to get them reliable. They usually finish much better because they will work independently but lots of time and lots of birds to get them to do it everytime.


    Great video.

    Cowboy Poet says, "Giving a cowboy a good border collie is like giving a cave man a crescent wrench." :D

    Heelers and I don't get along. They're always looking for an opening.:)

    Since opinions are cheap and inexpensive, here is mine:

    I Think is genuine. Not dubbed. You guys had me watching this too many times!

    Clarification: I did not read Booney's post until after the fact! Sorry...
