I did learn one lesson whilst trying to film this. That it is confusing for the dog to be trying to film and give them commands at the same time, because you are trying to film, your body language is not so clear and Henry I know takes most of his cues from me from my eye contact and body movement. Yep, I said eye contact. Yes, I find that you can actually look your dog in the eyes without him/her thinking you are being aggressive or vice versa. There are lots of different types of eye contact and eye contact has a lot to do with what the rest of your body is saying and in what context the eye contact is in and that is the same for the dog.
The second jump you will notice I removed the vase off the sideboard and I got a couple treats, and Henry then shows us how good he is at catching as well.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
― Samuel Butler
