When you’re passionate about the outdoors, a love of animals seems to come-along hand-in-hand; for some the love of their best friend goes to pretty committed lengths – cue the relaxed chap we recently saw in Noosa paddleboard surfing in a deckchair with his dog up front (yes, really).
However, more often than not, these action sport pals are largely just particularly loyal/brave pooches, happy to be coming along for the ride with their owners; so today’s find of a canine companion almost more talented than his human counterpart made us smile even more than six minutes of dogs waking up their owners.
Meet Alex & Jumpy. Ok, so as you’ve probably guessed after just watching a dog doing a perfect backflip, there’s a little more to it than meets the eye. Jumpy is actually a professional Hollywood stunt-dog, trained by expert dog handler Omar Von Muller. Omar’s dogs have featured in films as varied as The Artist & Jackass, but Jumpy is the definite action-hero of the pack. A border collie-mix, Jumpy is just about the ultimate sports dog, and this video with professional parkour/freerunner Alex Duong has put a huge smile on our faces. Does anyone know of a cooler dog than this!?
