Lola the cute prague ratter ‘dancing’ & waiting for a ball to be thrown

prague ratter

If you have never seen a Prague ratter picture then you are in for a real treat, because this is Lola the Prague ratter dancing in a video.

No it is not traditional dancing, but none the less it shows you some very fancy footwork. The prague ratter is one of the most interesting dogs to look at and see the speed of its movements. They are very small dogs and very high energy, created originally for the art of ratting and catching small vermin.

The amazing thing you will see in this video is that it makes the Australian favourite ratter, the jack Russell, seem untypically lethargic by comparison.

This video was also shot on my new Canon small format camera on a very bright day in quarantine. The previous Fuji camera had an annoying habit of losing focus several times throughout a video so I was quite anxious to see the results of this new technology. The fact that Lola moves so fast and has such fine bone structure is indeed a test for the technology of any camera.

In a previous video I took of Lola she was showing her retrieving skills, but I was so impressed with how well she covered the ground to the ball, and her fast precise movements before the ball was thrown, that I thought I should take some video of her just waiting for the ball to be thrown.

So that is the summation of this video. No fancy video affects, just 100% Prague ratter Lola tracking the ball in a ball launcher before I throw it. No video speed ups. 100% natural dog action.

You will see the video I have of her chasing the ball still in ball launcher as I slide it along the ground is very cat like. The fact that the tennis ball makes her head look so small will give you a good indication of how tiny she really is.

What you don’t see in this video is her relaxed side. A lot of times very good ratters and terriers created for hunting vermin can be independent and not desiring a relaxing pat. Not so with Lola who didn’t mind reclining on her back and having her chest rubbed.

Yes, I would have to say that Lola was a very impressive dog and a joy to work with. I hope you get as much pleasure out of watching this video as I did meeting Lola and making the video.
