Episode 5
Entertaining, informative and charming Teach My Pet To Do That celebrates the hidden intellectual potential of our nations pets.
We are a nation of animal lovers with over half of us owning some sort of pet. Watching funny and entertaining pet’s on line is a bit of a national obsession but rarely do we think our own pets are capable of such feats of brilliance. 
Teach My Pet To Do That will wipe away that misconception.  Using only positive reinforcement training this series proves that any pet has the potential to be an internet superstar. 
The Teach My Pet, Pet School is a place where domesticated pets of all shapes, sizes and species enrol to be taught tricks that enrich the lives of animal and owner.   
This week, Alexander Armstrong opens the doors of his multispecies pet training school to welcome German Shepherd cross Declan and domesticated ferret Biscuit, to see if they can learn to ring a dinner bell to get their owners’ attention.  Our star pet is Chaska, a world-class attack dog that really gets its teeth into Alexander.  And our trainers hit the road to train a miniature horse how to be a bellhop in a 5 star hotel.
