Will Ferrell Shows Off His Questionable Dog Training Expertise for Conan O'Brien

When Will Ferrell stopped by Conan last week to promote his new film, he confessed to a secret passion: dog training. Ferrell apparently loves animals so much that he works with pups during down time in between shooting movies.

"It's just kind of a release for me," he explained to host Conan O'Brien. "It's very gratifying. We work with a lot of dogs who have behavioral issues, and it's a great way to give them confidence."

So what better place to show off Ferrell's skills than on late-night television, right?

In this hilarious outtake from the show, the crew rolls out a souped-up agility course. And with training clicker in hand, Ferrell prepares for the handlers to release a pack of dogs and . . . well, you'll see.
