Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? David Beckham proved it’s never too late to train your dog in an adorable Instagram video featuring Spaniel Fig.

Fig the Cocker Spaniel was adopted by the Beckham family back in 2018.

She’s a much loved member of the family, and features in many of David’s posts.

And while dogs are always a big hit on social media, Fig has gathered particular attention in the past few weeks as she’s shown off her obedience skills. 

During the lockdown, as we all know, there’s not much to do. Thankfully, our furry friends are always willing to take part in fun activities, be that games or training sessions.

Training a Cocker Spaniel

Beckham has shared two separate videos in the past few weeks which show him training Fig to “give her paw”. Fig has got the general idea down, but she’s still learning how to switch from one paw to the other. 

In fact, when David asks for her “other paw” and she doesn’t get it, she still demands her treats by launching onto David and snatching them from his hand! Bit naughty, but who could resist that face?

We love that owners are making the effort to spend quality time with their dogs while we face so many restrictions in our social lives. It’s good for us, and it’s good for our dogs too!

Keep it up, Fig!
