• Short Summary

    Mr Hammond-Wright's Rustling Wolf Alsatians perform tricks.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Leaps and bounds [superimposed over C/U of an Alsatian dog] - 'Amongst the cleverest of dogs, the Alsatian stands high', says Mr. Hammond-Wright, whose 'Rustling Wolf Alsatians' are famous. 'They are apt pupils and pick up all sorts of tricks very rapidly.'"

    Location of events unknown - probably London, Pathe studio.

    Various shots of Mr Hammond-Wright with his four Rustling Wolf Alsatians in a studio. He gets them to jump over each other and through hoops. One dog guesses correctly three times which hand the man is hiding a coin in.

    Mr Hammond-Wright puts some some coloured handkerchiefs and flags in a line on the ground and asks one of the dogs to pick out the Union Jack; the dog does so. The man then gets the dogs to bark when he asks them to speak. Two of the dogs then take turns to jump over an 8-foot barrier - one of them nearly gets stuck.
