Dogs are skillful and have a lot of talents. Some of them are great in a game of catch, some are good at painting, while others are good at following commands and doing fun tricks.
For the last skill mentioned above, a lot of dogs are very smart in showing off their tricks, such as rolling over or giving a handshake. But one dog stands out from the crowd with his trick – thanks to his acting skills.
Many dog owners like to go beyond teaching their furry friends the basics. Some of them even seriously train their dogs to do fun tricks as well. In this video, a man managed to capture the trick he taught his German Shepherd named Sam.
Let’s just say that Sam certainly deserves a yummy treat for her acting skills.
If you are thinking of training your dog at home, you can browse The Cesar’s Way website which gives tips on how to teach your dog the five essential commands. These are how to sit, stay, down, come, and leave it. After doing each one, the dog is given a treat.
As for Sam, she was excited to get a treat reward as well. As seen in the video, the man is informing Sam that he’s got a treat for her. Sam looks at him quietly and patiently. All of a sudden, the man shouts, “bang!”
The adorable pooch, hearing the man’s signal, gives out a small cry and makes a spin on the floor. She quickly drops on the floor and lays still as if she was completely lifeless.
The man immediately praises her and says, “Good girl!” Bravo for Sam! It was a dramatic performance, indeed. Training your dog is one very important part of being a responsible dog owner. However, we are also allowed to have a little fun with them too!
Watch Sam’s dramatic acting below and see for yourself.
