If you think that dogs are dumb animals that only does things to get treats, you may want to rethink your opinions after watching the video below. Dogs are definitely not stupid, and they’re smart enough to do things that will surely amaze anyone. However, there’s always a dog that will surpass other dogs when it comes to being clever.
Wayne Pearce is the proud dad to a dog named Zippy. Wayne makes it a point to take Zippy out on walks not only to help Zippy expend his high energy, but it’s also a good exercise for Wayne to get that much-needed exercise. He even brought a wrist-worn pedometer so he can keep track of his walking goals.
Wayne also took a ball with him just in case Zippy wanted to play fetch. It’s usually a yellow ball with a rope attached to it. Little did Wayne know that Zippy would be able to learn how to entertain himself while they went to a nearby playground. Zippy discovered that the slide isn’t just a device for children to slide down for fun. Zippy figured out that the slide can be used as a launching mechanism for his beloved toy ball.
Wayne filmed the entire thing with his phone. It showed Zippy placing the ball on top of the slide and letting go of it. Once the ball goes down the slide, Zippy chases after it as if he was playing fetch. Zippy does this over and over again.
The video shows just how intelligent and ingenious dogs can be. They know that they can use things in their environment to play. As you can see, dogs aren’t just playing fetch for our own entertainment and to get treats. They also do this to have fun. Zippy just found another way to play fetch if his dad’s too busy talking on the phone.
Wayne even joked that Zippy took away the reason for him to buy the expensive pedometer. What’s the point of taking his dog out for a walk when he actually learned how to entertain himself? Here’s a remarkable video showing the amusing Zippy chase after the toy he launched from a slide.
