    The tricks are amazing, but I don't like how unsafe a lot of them are.

    For starters, they have their rats sitting on their dogs head, poking it in the eye with their feet and nails (unhygienic and potentially dangerous for the dogs eye), and the dog could snap any minute and go for them.

    The recall trick, well let's just say I won't be surprised if one day one either runs off in the other direction, or a bird of prey swoops down and takes the rat. They're all pretty impressive though, especially the tightrope.

    The dog is very, very trained. I have seen this and many other videos. Its very neat. The girl, I believe, has trained her dog and cat and many other animals of theirs and in some they act together. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCct...PMniJil6nURQQA that's their channel and there is also really cool videos of mouse tricks: https://www.youtube.com/user/MouseAgility

    I have actually been working with one of my rats teaching her things. So far she comes when she's called and she will sit up and beg on command. She also gives kisses on command and will sit up to get her belly tickled. Another one she does is when I open her cage she runs up my arm and onto my shoulder.
