Incredible Dog Tricks by Nana

Nana the Border Collie performs amazing dog tricks!  All of Nana's training is done with progressive reinforcement and clicker training.

I have included some of Nana's latest tricks in addition to some of her older ones.  We hope you all enjoy!  Stay tuned for more videos. :)


  1. Nana is incredible! I love her tricks-you are a HUGE inspiration! I'm very much looking forward to your next video! Keep training paw-sitive!:D

  2. NanaBorderCollie, I also wanted to ask you that if you ever have the time, can you post a list of some of Nana's tricks in the order she learned them? If I ever get a dog, I'd like to know where to start, such as what tricks puppies could master easily first. Also, I would like it if you could do some tutorials for the harder tricks.
    Thanks-we are one of your biggest fans!:)

  3. Amazing video! Nana knows a lot of tricks! :) She seems like a very smart dog and I can't wait to see the next creative trick you teach her. ;) I appreciate that you share your videos; you inspire me every day. Keep up the good work!

  4. Hi.

    Nana is amazing! *-*
    You're a great dog trainer! Congratulations, really.

  5. Great job, Nana, and to you as a trainer yourself! I am one of your biggest fans and you inspire me very much! Keep up the incredible work; I can't wait to see what tricks Nana will perform next. Great job! I am definitely impressed!❤

  6. I published a special post about Nana and Kaiser in my personal blog. I hope you don't matter about it, If you want I can remove that. It is writ in portuguese but my blog have a translator, so you can translate it.

    I thought you like to see, so, this is the link:

  7. I wish I have a dog myself. Meanwhile, good job Nana! You did it again!

  8. How sweet is that! I wish I had the motivation to teach such tricks to my 10-mont-old BC junior but it is only mainly agility that gets me high and makes me set goals. Wonderful job! Greetings from Finland

  9. Incredible tricks, Nana! When Nana looks around after you say "squirrel" it reminds me of how our Guinea Pigs squeal like crazy when we open the fridge. Usually they both chew on the cage bars or one squeaks, and it can be heard from anywhere in the house! They squeak because we give them celery, which is in the fridge, and they love it and think we are getting them some. :)
    One of my favorite tricks of Nana's is when she jumps into your arms. She doesn't even hesitate, which is definitely a sign of how positive training grows the bond between a handler and their dog! Nice job on training her and your other amazing animals. :)

  10. Hi, NanaBorderCollie! :)
    I heard that you are working on a training tutorial DVD. It sounds excellent, so I'm hoping I'll be able to get it once it's out.
    Thank you for all of the continued support for your fans! You are my inspiration to animal training. One day I'd like to be as good as you. :)

    1. Aww, thank you! This gratitude is truly mutual, as I cannot thank you all enough for your wonderful support and kind comments. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
