The link works for me. I wonder why it's not working for you? That's odd. It's a helper acting all bad in front of a dog.

Great rush, but my body is too old to catch dogs safely, but blind work may be doable for an oldster that can't run fast.
It could be an ad for the dog but I'm more interested in the helper. He makes it look like so much fun. I wish I could at least have a go at doing it one day. You can do facial expressions alone to provoke a dog? Wow.
