Sailing dogs? Whatever next? The term salty seadog will have a while new meaning after watching this video. Now I wish I could get my dog to do half of this! But being a Cocker Spaniel he always seems to be keener to go for a swim in the water rather than sail on it! I'm not sure that all the treats in the world are ever going to result in him sailing like this dog does.

This fabulous video is guaranteed to make you smile, especially if you are a fan of Border Collies! This is one smart sailing dog, who really seems to have a great grasp of the sport. Watch him hoist the jib, helm, tack and trim a sail... he even trapezes off the side of the boat! They really seem to know how to breed them in Kiev!
