    Absolutely amazing.:eek:
    How would have thought that a pig could be train like that.
    Certainly not me, and I've worked with them for years.
    Just goes to show you that they are not as stupid as I thought.:confused:
    Shame on me.:o

    I train a lot of gun dogs, never thought of training a pig, I agree with Stevie though they're not as daft as we make them out to be.

    pigs are highly intelligent creatures. I once had a javelina (also known as a collared peccary) that is a descendant of an ancestor to pigs.... Collared Peccaries are known for being vicious if challenged. "Princess" was not vicious, she was SWEET. She was hand raised from 3 days old when her mom was shot by poachers. She was taught to sit on command, she could sit up and beg better than most dogs I've known. Plus she LOVED playing "bobbing for apples" in her water dish.

    I had to share that video, it's gone everywhere, website, fb and even got a tweet. I loved it when the wee pig shut the box lid too, great. :p

    Haha, I remember seeing this little guy on t.v. awhile ago. It really is impressive the pig can do a whole lot of tricks that a lot of good dogs can't do. Right on, don't remember how far they got, but good work!
