Who doesn't love a good magic trick? Young or old, rich or poor, there's something eternally fascinating about seeing an experienced magician perform right before your eyes. Sure, we may tell ourselves that it's all lighting and mirrors, but the best magicians are able to dazzle and bewilder us nonetheless. Whether we're talking about David Copperfield or the legendary Harry Houdini himself, all magicians need a bit of assistance from time to time - especially when attempting to pull off some of the more intricate, higher level magic tricks. That's where a dog could potentially come in handy! Dogs are incredibly perceptive and have keen senses, making them excellent assistants with which to test new tricks.
Magic tricks are all cerebral in nature, so it takes a very sharp and creative person to come up with new magic tricks that can continue to delight and surprise people. One of the big reasons a magician who is caring for a dog should consider employing them as an assistant is the fact that a dog will always be willing to try new things out with their human companions in order to bond further - simply put, a dog will never complain or doubt your abilities. In turn, exercise caution and safety when trying out new tricks with your dog; our golden rule is to never try anything with your dog that you wouldn't try with a young child.
