Amazing, but I'd worry about their legs and backs holding up through old age with all the concussive leaps and landings.

They are very well trained and conditioned for this and are not doing it for hours a day. As with any athlete, injuries are possible and do happen but, as my Dad used to say, "you can be injured walking across the street." (Or even getting out of bed).

But, I would caution most pet owners against trying these things without first checking with their vet, and second gradually physically conditioning their animals.

also take a look at the breeds, lots of collies and cattledogs, breeds bred specifically to have incredibly high drive, and an insane amount of athletisism, strong knees and hips and backs have always been a must fo the breeds work...this is not something youd expect say a mastiff to do...their bodies arnt structured for this...borders and heaers though flyfing over fences and making sharp turns is part of their breed history...
and they are having a blast!

Yah I 2nd Foxy, those dogs are all BC or ACD or crosses, these dogs are NOT for your average pet owner they can by HE!! on wheels to live with unless you can channel their high drive. If you've ever seen these breeds work stock you'd get the idea, they are strong and hardy and were bred to work all day.

Only watched half od this,the dogs are excellent but I am not into dogs doing tricks.

I think these antics will catch up with them as they get older.

gain putting emphasis on the "tricks" part...you know basic commands such as sit are "tricks" right...

it makes it seem like these dogs are being commanded to do this , there not...mny of these trick are simply developed from naturalbehavious...

workiingdoggy daycare we had a bordercollie so neurotic from NOT havig hi drive challgenged that he would "kill" shadows...no realy hed stare them down and the oment the hadow moved hed go crazy bting and snapping at it...
when he got complelty frustrated at theshadows on the wals hed bounce off the wlls repetitively doing backflips...and try to ge tin his way ot stop him hed simply use YOU as a springboard tand do backflips ff you...9na dyes I mean actual backflips) hed do it for house...and hes not the nly example...most of these tricks are things the owne sees a dog doing and praises to reinforce it...

ive got a buddy with a 13 yr old ACD (red healer depending on what location you live) whos STILL doing tricks like thi as a national Frisbee champ...she LIVES for it...its not a "job" her only treat/reward for these trick is that Frisbee, she LOVES it and will clear a 8ft wll climb after a Frisbee if given the oportuity, she oves to jump and dive and run and I dot think shell even stop when shes dead. he never forces her to perform, but she lives for this kind of stuff....and the same can be said about many dogs, borders, acds, papillions and JRT's all come to mind...
