The trainer who walks dog packs without a leash

Every pet deserves a loving and respectful home: please only consider acquiring a pet if you will be able to take care of its long-term needs. Also, consider choosing your animal companion from a shelter, where there are so many wonderful furry friends who need a forever home. 

A selection of Cyprus animal shelters, as well as their locations, can be found here.

In this 2015 video, we meet leader of the pack, Augusto Deoliveira, 23, who can walk huge groups of unleashed German Shepherd dogs, following obediently at his heels.

The dog trainer lives in the States, but grew up surrounded by dogs on a farm in Brazil, where he discovered that, upon training, he could lead groups of canines without the need for leashes.

Flash forward to the present and Deoliveira heads his own business, Griffin Shepherd Kennels, claiming to be able to guide up to 15 free-walking dogs at the same time.
