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 enroll to be taught tricks that enrich the lives of animal and owner.   
This week on Teach My Pet To Do That, animal lover, comedian and presenter Alexander Armstrong opens the doors of his multispecies pet training school, to welcome Ethel the Goat and Fagin the Crow in the hope they can learn to tidy up their toys and put them away in a box.  Our star pupil is Smurf, a Parson terrier that holds the world record of performing the most tricks in a minute. 
And our trainers hit the road to teach an Arab Mare called Ruby Ribena to county in the hope she can help turn a little girls party into a fairy tale.
