Amazing Japanese dog circus “Super Wan wan Circus”

  If you follow my blog entries, you will notice that I love teaching Palette fun tricks besides basic obedience tricks such as sit-stay etc.

  I enjoy training her because she is very eager to learn the new thing, and she gets so excited when she gets it right. She gives me huge Corgi smile on her with her tongue hanging out as if she is very proud of herself.

  Palette has been trained with clicker since the puppyhood.

  When we enrolled into puppy training class, we were introduced to the clicker training and, I found it very effective way to teach her many things and she seems to have fun learning new things as much as I do.Therefore,I have been sticking with the clicker training ever since.

  I like the clicker training because dogs are much more eager to learn things,and clicker’s unique sound can deliver the exact moment dogs did right, and it has no miscommunication between us as to what behavior got rewarded. Thus, it results in fast learning.

  I also like the that the training is not like a doggy boot camp.

  With clicker training, you can teach them wide variety of things.

  Even if you will take only 5 minutes training session daily with your dogs, it is worth it. The key for the good training is to be consistent and be patient. Clicker training is fun for both of you,and it is good for your dogs too.

  Training is a great mental exercise for your dogs because especially with the clicker training, the dogs “think” and try act accordingly to see if any of their behavior gets us to click the clicker to earn the reward. In a way, clicker training is a thinking game for them.

  Just recently, I came across the youtube video from Tsukuba, Chiba prefecture in Japan about Dog circus called “Super Wan wan Circus”.

  Chiba prefecture is where the Tokyo Narita Airport, Tokyo Disneyland, and Tokyo Disney sea are located at and, right next to Tokyo.

  “Wan wan” is the sound we describe dog’s barking sound.

  In the state, people say “Bow wow” to describe dog’s barking sound but it is different to our ears.

  The Dog Circus has been in the business for over 50 years and,they have been rescuing the shelter dogs and trains them to perform amazing tricks, and trying to send the message to people around the world not to give up on these talented amazing dogs.

  Interesting fact about the Wan wan circus is that, they have 3 Guinness world records;. jumping ropes,  how many times dogs can walk around trainer’s neck within 30 seconds, and jumping trainer’s spinning legs.

 I like the fact that they seem to be using the positive training method rather than boot camp style training and all dogs seems to be eager to perform with the trainers with big smile on them. Both trainers and dogs seem to be having a great bonding time via training session.
