Does Your Pet Have Talent? Prove It!

Who says you can’t teach an adopted pet new tricks? Certainly not Uggie! Ten years before capturing the hearts of moviegoers around the world, The Artist's Uggie was a shelter pup. Yep! In fact, he was returned by two guardians who were unprepared for the little Jack Russell's boundless energy. But dog trainer Omar Von Muller saw something special in the playful pup. He fell in love with Uggie’s outgoing, mischievous behavior—and it’s been a perfect match ever since.

If you would like to see my cats do tricks please go to:

This is just SOME of what they can do. There is more but it is hard to put it on camera. I also have a DVD of my black cat doing talents as well.

Some of what they can do is give 5, high 5, wave, sit up, beg, bow, turn left, turn, right, sit on command, and walk on a leash.

i luv my cat spooky

I saw your videos on YouTube! Your cats are really amazing! Piper and Amy, is it? Well I'm just saying keep up the great work with your cats! My cat can do a trick, and I'm trying to teach her more!
