I'm sure we've all seen dogs put on really impressive displays like this, and I think it's awesome. But it really makes me wonder, what are these dogs like day-to-day? Could you take them for a walk down a city street and have their full attention on you like that? Is that practical?
Can any of those kinds of tricks be used practically, for any breed? Could my 3lb chihuahua do back flips off my leg, and if she could, what would we use that for? lol Ok, poor example, but I think you get what I mean.
And I'm not saying they HAVE to be practical, hey, tricks are fun! I'm just looking to open up a bit of discussion on this.
