Dogs might not be the best problem solving species on Earth, but given enough time and training, they can learn plenty of cool tricks. Take this Bordie Collie named Jumpy as an example. From skateboarding to extreme jumping, this animal is practically an X Games athlete.
Owner Omar Muller has dozens of videos of his dogs doing all kinds of wacky and visually fascinating things. Last week, he decided to assemble the best clips of his dog Dash into one highlight video and the best clips of his dog Jumpy into the above footage. I have no idea why people are so much more excited about one than the other, but good old Jumpy has somehow managed to attract more than four hundred thousand views.
As his name would indicate, his best skill is his almost otherworldly jumping ability. He’s got the grace of Carl Lewis soaring through the air. That being said, his balance is also Natalie Portman-esque, and his flare for the camera is first-rate. I don’t know who goes about casting animals for television productions, but this dog needs to get on some contact lists.
Don’t worry if your dog can’t accomplish most of these feats. There’s always value in celebrating the little victories.
