The Art of Clueless Dog Training

It's hard to believe this is my first Video blog, although easier to comprehend when you see the jerky camera movements and fuzzy shots of grass and hear the odd swear word slip out.




I was planning to make my first video blog in Cannes complete with celeb. studded launch but that didn't quite pan out. The folks at the Hotel Martinez couldn't get the champagne order right so instead I opted for the manky old park around the back of the hospital. Who needs palm lined boulevards when you can have rotting bleachers?

Clueless Dog Training is an exercise in ineptitude. It was also really gray, dank and freezing out there. The sort of day that makes you think "Hey meth addiction wouldn't be so bad."

Until you realize it really would be. Enjoy.

  1. You got lovely kids! And I like when the camera is just showing a patch of grass for a while until you realize 'I should be pointing at something else' and move.

  4. Your kids are darling, and it's nice to hear your voice, especially when you saw the "No Dogs Allowed" sign. Very entertaining, David.

  7. I don't think Marty was aware it was a dog-training exercise. He looked like he was just having a nice run around the park. :)
