Never mind about clever dogs, Chris Mancini is an absolute star. It was great fun to be able to film her again and to learn how to add to our dogs' trick repertoire. When Chris shows the finished result with her dog Duffy, you can't imagine where you'd begin with teaching it but once you see it broken down into easy stages, it suddenly looks like a possibility. With the help of enthusiastic but less experienced Shih Tzu/Pug cross Pippin, Chris showed exactly that. Who knows, in time maybe we could all get our dogs taking a bow, skateboarding and even cocking a leg on command.
