When performing Dog Magic,
I often get asked the question
"How do you train the dog to be so clever?
" However, I do not like training animals very much.
Naturally, the essential training not to bite
or jump on people is necessary,
but that is nothing special.
We simply give them lots of love
from when they are young
and spend time with them while also
allowing other people to handle
them as much as possible.
This will result in a very good dog
that loves humans. They are certainly
a little spoiled,
but that is part of their cuteness.
When they are behaving well during the magic,
they have such happy faces like they are playing
"hide and seek".
And when the moment of their appearance
on stage comes,our joy and theirs becomes
one amidst the applause and cheering.
We are now living together with 6 dogs,
and not only the living room
but also the bedroom is shared by all of us.
In this way we can be together all the time,
whether sleeping or awake.
When I am away on business,
I talk to them via TV phone while looking at their faces.
Now, on days when I am not there,
I hear that they sometimes stare at the computer monitor.
It makes me happy to think "I am not the only one who is lonely".
