A Golden Retriever Fails an Obedience Contest in a Glorious Way

Sometimes it’s just not worth acting like you’re supposed to. Life just puts a whole bunch of treats in front of you, there for the taking, and it’s a lot more rewarding to grab them in a mad frenzy than it is to obey the rules.

I’m not being metaphorical here. This is exactly what happened at a dog obedience contest in Finland. The object was that each dog was supposed to sit at one end of a strip, then run directly to their trainer, completely ignoring the tempting meat snacks and toys lined up along the sides. In the video below, you can see the first two dogs execute the course perfectly: They come when called, acting as if there weren’t tasty sausages and squeak toys sitting mere inches away.
