The Golden Retriever became a hit on social media because of the way he tricked his owner into getting food again.
In the video, which has been viewed more than a few thousand times on TikTok, it can be seen that the owner is trying to teach the dog to wait patiently for food when he sees it, instead of immediately grabbing it with his teeth.
To test his patience, the owner put a treat on the table and left the room, leaving the dog in a dilemma. He wanted to eat it, but at the same time he didn’t want the owner to reprimand him, so he came up with a plan.
He ate the treat, then went to the drawer where the owner hid the food and pulled out another treat and placed it on the table in the same place where the treat he had eaten stood.
When the owner returned to the room, he saw the food intact on the table and rewarded the dog with a new treat.
The video made many users laugh, praising the dog for his wit.
