Dogs are known for obeying to different kinds of tricks. A classical one includes to get the dog to play dead at the hear of the sound “bang”. Some dogs are so well trained in doing this actually that they can easily compete with Oscar winners.
Clearly, some dogs are better at this than others. For example, Sam the German Shephard takes it one step further. I really can’t stop laughing at this.
Prior to making him act it out, dad asks whether he wants a treat. He then proceeds by saying “bang” to which the dog put the most dramatic performance ever. He started by letting out a yelp then rolled on the floor, on his back at which point, cherry on top, he decides to put his feet up in the air and play dead officially.
I wonder just how much time it took the dog to learn this and how much patience it required on the owner’s side. Probably a lot for this is a hard trick to even teach human actors.
