It’s no secret that Golden Retrievers are very smart dogs. This pup though seems to be in a league of his own!

You may have seen the popular TikTok trend of owners leaving a treat out for their dog and leaving the room to see what the dog does. This might just be the smartest one we’ve seen.

A very clever boy

First, the owner asks the Golden Retriever to sit in front of the coffee table, then he goes to get a treat and places it in front of him. He tells the pup that he is going to get something in another room and tells him not to eat the treat until he returns.

Usually, at this point, the dog either eats the treat or exercises patience and waits obediently for his owner to come back.

Cunning canine

This clever pup manages to do both! First, he eats the treat, then he goes to get another one from the drawer and puts it back in the same position so his owner has no idea.

When his owner returns and sees that the treat is still there, he hands the clever pup another treat – mission accomplished!

A social star

The clever pup’s subterfuge quickly went viral and has collected over 3 million views on various social media channels.

Good boy…we think!
