Its owner was taking part in a TikTok challenge with her version of the video.
She said: ‘I saw a TikTok challenge to feed your dog imaginary treats and see their reaction, when I tried it my dog appeared to ‘play pretend’ and actually pretend to chew the fake treats.’
The dog reacted well to the challenge but many other pooches were shown appearing angry in TikToks as they realised their owners were not holding real treats.
But the video is not the first time a pooch has been captured being clever with their owner.
