Will Ferrell is a mean, mean dog trainer. His words of encouragement when the dogs failed to make a jump: ”I”ll neuter you with a spoon” or “I’m going to ship you off to a Mexican circus.”
Thankfully, we were all in on the joke. The “Casa de mi Padre” actor jokingly bragged to Conan O’Brien about how he loves training dogs. “It’s kind of a release for me,” he said with a completely serious face. “I work with a lot of dogs that have behavioural issues.”
He then brought out a makeshift obstacle course and verbally attacked the dogs who ran wild through the audience. Luckily, the worse the dog show was, the more entertaining it was to watch. In fact, the humour was directly proportional to how much the dogs failed.
Now I’m gunning for a “Best In Show” inspired movie where he plays an over-passionate dog groomer — similar to Dance Moms but with furry canines.
My main concern is, what’s Will Ferrell’s deal with dogs? Check out his SNL skit “Dissing Your Dog” below.
