Friday Films: Happy Dogs—and a Cat—in Australia

Our friend from Australia, animal trainer Robert Dollwet, shows off his skills again today with a new video inspired by Pharrell Williams’ mega hit “Happy”.  It’s also a great way to end the week and prepare for the weekend.  In addition to the dogs, Dollwet’s famous skateboard-riding cat Didga is included.

Dollwet and his animal stars live in Coolangatta, Australia, and Dollwet posts on YouTube as "Catmantoo." Dollwet’s company is Malabu Dog Training.  You can read more Didga, Dollwet and his training methods on his website.  You can also follow them on Catmantoo’s Facebook page.

Friday Films: Wanna Go For A Walk?

Today on Friday Films I was going to feature a tutorial video by trainer Robert Dollwet on how to clip your cat’s nails, but I stumbled on his video below and thought it would be more fun. Wouldn’t it be great to have this kind of relationship with a cat?
