The rules of playing fetch are very simple: the human throws, and the dog retrieves. Rinse and repeat.
It’s not even a game that needs to be taught, because it’s so easy that any person or pup can grasp the concept. But in a video uploaded to YouTube by Kyoot Animals, a dog has trouble getting a human to understand how to play fetch, mainly because that human isn’t a human at all. It’s a doll.
The dog clearly thinks the doll is an actual person, though, because it does everything from barking and nudging the doll, to waiting patiently for the doll to respond and toss the toy across the room.
The dog’s Husky friend even investigates, and either isn’t fooled by the lifelike doll, or doesn’t care.
But this dog is so determined to get this lazy being to play, that it finally lays down on the floor and waits for a response.
Pup, you’re going to be waiting a lonnnnnggg time.
