This clip was filmed during a Competitive Obedience trial. In such a sport, the handler directs the dog through a series of highly stylized behaviours that demonstrate control, accuracy, and precision from both handler and dog.
A sport taken seriously
And these guys are absolutely stealing the show! The dog is constantly attentive, looking at his handler and waiting for the next command. His reaction time is almost inexistent – as soon as a command comes through, the beautiful shepherd dog executes!
Some of us may struggle to get our dogs to sit. Meanwhile, here’s this German Shepherd, walking to a perfect heel, darting forward when he is told to go, and stopping dead in his tracks when he is told to stay.
This video is so impressive that it has already been liked over 74,000 times! Admirers from all over the world comment on the dog's supreme intelligence:
“That is a dog trained with love and discipline. A pleasure to behold.”
Another writes: “The entire time the dog was happy. Not looking abused or mistreated, but genuinely happy to be doing this for his master. That's true love.”
The wonder of the German Shepherd
German Shepherds are indeed extremely intelligent and trainable dogs. Although originally bred as a sheepdog, GSDs are today one of the most versatile working breeds in the world. They are regularly used by the army and police, and are sometimes even trained as service dogs.
