Cat Trainer Gets Dogs, Cat To Rock To Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ Video

By Brandon Mercer

This may be the best “Happy” video yet, and there’ve been a BUNCH of them–including Alice’s own!

What could possibly better demonstrate Alice artist Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” than a bunch of happy dogs and cats!? And — how in the world do you get a cat to swim!?

Bay Area native cat and dog trainer Robert Dollwet knows how, and created an amazing video with underwater cameras, dogs-eye-views, and cat-eye-views, all synched up to the happiest song we know.

It’s not his first video of crazy cats and dogs. He actually taught a cat, Didga how to skateboard, and his YouTube channel, CATMANTOO has plenty of viral video proof of his success training cats over the past 33 years.

After moving from┬áLucas Valley where he attended Novato High School, he lived in Australia and began training dogs for the Australian military, and then moved to Hollywood where he trained animal actors for movies and TV. He uses “clicker training” and non-aversive training methods, but really enjoys teaching PEOPLE that they can do it too.

On his website, he mentions training animals for Mel Gibson, Olivia Newton John, Pamela Anderson, James Cameron, and Dick Clark.

If you want to see how he does it, he has plenty of how-to videos to get you started:
