Pakito's favorite trick, though he knows several
others. He really thinks he is impressing others when he does that.
As a matter of fact, he rolls over to impress female dogs that he wants to
court too (but he is neutered). He is a funny little guy...
Pakito loves to fetch a stick and takes off
running and leaping like a little rabbit. He is such a good sport; he
has never been sad for a day in his life.
Macarena's Cat Imitation
After Macarena returned home from the AKC dog
shows with her new Champion title, we found that she learned how to clean

a pregnancy so she is very fat here.
Macarena Asks for the Ball
Macarena loves to play with a ball. Watch
her as she asks and does tricks to get it!

carried up. Sound effortless movement is essential."
Tiny's Dancing Trick
Tiny has this little dance that we never taught
her. One day while she was in the show ring she decided to try it and
she got a big reaction from everybody. Hungry for attention like she
is, she kept doing it and to this day she does her little dance whenever she
Valentino is still a puppy in this video. His name
serves him well, because he is the most affectionate dog we have.
Getting Leash Trained
Valentino despises the leash... We have
trained him to have more confidence walking with one, which is necessary
for him to participate in the dog shows. He was a good learner and
quickly became an AKC Champion in 2006, being ranked in the Top 25 list of
