I didn't watch either video to the end. Did either of the monkeys dismount from its dog, or is it really "costumed monkeys tied onto dogs that are herding goats?"

Kirth Gerson - From the linked article at steamboattoday.com:

'Once clothed in their miniature chaps and ornate costumes, Lepard said the monkeys "climb on, get adjusted and hang on." He said the monkeys will be tethered to the collies to prevent a bucked Capuchin, known for their "organ-grinding" abilities, from running amuck into the crowd.'

Well, exactly. Don't want any organs being ground in the crowd, there.

Train the monkeys to yell "Yipee" while waving little cowboy hats and they've got something there.

Faulted for monkeys not actually controlling the dog... which would be a sign of the apocalypse, BTW.

I think a Border Collie would get insulted if a monkey tried to boss it around.
