Better than a chimp … continued

This video clip shows Brian working with two of his own dogs.  Apart from verbal praise at the end of the exercise, Brian gives no verbal cues to his dogs. Instead all their instruction is in the form of eye contact and pointing. This demonstrates exactly how much dogs are able to ‘read’ our gestures, facial reactions and of course directional pointing.
