Previously, though with slightly different videos: 1, 2. The first video in 1 is the same dog, though.

That is a very happy dog.

Wow. That's amazing. It sure beats pugkour.

Yeah, well, my dog is a world champion carpet masher and toilet paper shredder. Beat that!

Man, that made my morning. I would like to suggest fellow anxiety sufferers from the earlier thread watch this immediately.

Anyone have the non-wimp.com link (aka the original video)?

Dog's climbing trees??? Now I've seen everything.

Hawaiian Parkour Dog

Original link: "Take a look, what you can train your dog!" with Youtube link

Also, this is obviously 'barkour.'

Be kind to your doggy knees. You'll miss them when they're gone.

Love the doggie long jumps around 2:50 or so.

Holy.

Such a joy to watch that kind of doggy enthusiasm turned up to 11 like that. And I laughed at the shots where the intention seemed to have been to have the dog go charging toward and past the camera — only he clearly wanted to stop and sniff it.

Lot of cat in that dog. Except for the "Wow, this is fun" part. Cats are more nonchalant about their parkour. I sure do despise the choppy edit style. Does anyone think that adds anything to a good action shot? Gives me a damn headache. When did sharp clear footage become passe? Especially when the subject matter is so cool.

So it's invisible fences or nothing, apparently.

I think we can all agree that this is the ultimate dog parkour.

I showed this to my husband, who said "You can't train a dog to do that -- he'll never stay in the back garden!"

There needs to be a sign like this sign for this dog. He is a very, very good dog.

This dog is the Tony Jaa of the canine world. Unbelieveable! And he so obviously loves it. Kudos to the cinematographer, natch.

Might I suggest watching the video with this music instead? (it works particularly well when the dog is storming through the backyard picnic)

Your agility course can suck it. No backyard can contain this dog.

God.
Damn.

Nmad.
Dog.

Words fail.
