Dog Tricks Owner Into Thinking It's Not Eaten A Treat
A very clever dog has gone viral for outwitting its human, having been caught on camera sneaking a treat and replacing it. Watch below:
He fetches a treat from a drawer and places it on the coffee table, motioning at his dog to behave itself before walking out of the room and leaving the pet alone.
The pooch watches its owner disappear and turns back to the treat, quickly snaffling it without missing a beat.
But while you've seen many pets chow down on things they're not supposed to, this dog breaks the mould slightly with its ingenious next move.
With its owner still absent, it walks over to the drawer and retrieves another treat, calmly walking back over to the coffee table and setting it down.
To cover its traces, the dog is also sure to go back to close the drawer before its owner returns - innocently greeting him when he walks in the room.

The video was shared on TikTok some time ago, but it's now resurfaced over on Twitter, where one post from British financier Helena Morrissey has garnered more than 19,000 retweets and 77,000 likes, while another from journalist and presenter Dan Walker also has 5,000 likes.
Many people have commented to say how 'brilliant' they found the clip - and just how smart that dog must be - with one person saying: "Love it! Such a clever pup! Love how he gets in position and then goes back to close the drawer!"
Someone else wrote: "That's incredible, I love the bit where the dog suddenly remembers it hasn't pushed the drawer shut."
A third joked: "If my lab had worked out how to open the drawer, there would be no treats in there, ever!"
Some people speculated that the dog may have been trained to carry out the stunt, but admitted it was pretty amazing nonetheless.
One said: "He must of taught him that. But that is genius."
Someone else said: "Not set up at all. The drawer conveniently has a cord on it that the dog can grab. The bloke is off camera instructing the dog. But yeah, sweet."
Another Twitter user, meanwhile, made a different observation, pointing out: "Would have been easier to eat straight from the drawer. Stupid dog!"
