My dog's Audition Video

I'm trying to get my dog into the movies. I made this video of him doing some of the tricks that he knows. There is also a bit of my old agility clips. I've already sent this video into a couple of animal agencies. FYI I don't think that the music matches the mood of the video. But youtube was being difficult about copyright on the first song that I had with it.

Your Dobe is very cute.

Not to crush your dreams or anything but you do realize that both his basic obedience work and his agility work are not really at a very advanced level, right?
On the A-frame the dog is required to touch the yellow on either side, not leap up and leap off.
The video footage of you doing agility indoors it looks like your dog went off course from where you were telling him to go (if this is not the case then pick another video because it very much looks like you told him to go one place and he went the other).
It should not take two requests to get the dog to finish after the come. Etc.

I am sure he is a wonderful dog, a great family pet. Keep working with him. It looks like you both are having a blast.

Everything you mentioned was my own fault. Back when he was younger I took him all the way through advanced. We even won a couple of blue ribbons. It's just been awhile since i've done much obedience with him and I wasn't very clear to him in the clip. As for the jumping video, you were very correct. That was one of our first lessons at that school and a begginner one at that. Again it was my fault since I accidentlly pulled him in then told him to go out over the jump. Unfortunately that was the only clip of him jumping. As for the A frame, he was taught running contacts (in the video he does touch both sides.) Thank you for your input it means a lot to me. I'll look into getting some newer clips of him. I also realize he isn't perfect and neither am I. Also keep in mind that we aren't doing any sports right now and haven't been for several months. But that leaves no excuse for not showing him in his very best light. thank you.
