Welcome to the official website of animal actors and YouTube stars Nana the Border Collie, Kaiser the Bengal cat, Shorty the opossum, and my zany mischief of talented rats.
All of my animals are taught exclusively with positive reinforcement and clicker training. My mission is to show the world that when an animal's extraordinary intelligence is paired with our love, respect, patience, trust, and dedication, the sky is the limit to what can be achieved together. Through my animals' tricks, I hope to encourage as many people as possible to use this fun approach to animal training.
My animals are trained animal actors and are available for commercials, motion pictures, print ads, television shows, and other media work.
If you have a question concerning my website, videos, or training, please refer to the Questions & Answers page.
