Just a dog walker with a dog on his shoulders

This little pug dog appears to be entirely in control of his master during their unusual walkies.

The pet is making its owner do all the hard work by standing on his shoulders during their daily stroll.

The pair are said to be a common sight around Motherwell, North Lanarkshire.

Student Connor Cassidy, 16, took this bizarre footage and asked the man why the black pug stood on his shoulders.

The owner replied ‘that’s just where the dog likes to be.’

Connor shared the video on Twitter, where it has now been seen over 3,000 times.

He said: ‘I’ve seen him a few times and we were talking to him.

‘It’s so funny. The dog’s not got a lead or anything – it’s just standing there.

‘I videoed it because it was just so confusing. The dog looked like he was having a great time.’

Add Brushing Your Dogs Teeth into Their Grooming Routine. Get in the habit of brushing your dogs teeth daily to avoid expensive dental visits later. You can use a human toothbrush if you like (though they make ones for dogs, too), but be sure to pick up tooth paste that’s formulated for dogs.

Dog walking injuries are on the rise with people suffering broken hands and wrists as well as tendon or ligament damage as a result of leashes being yanked.

We haven’t yet heard of strained shoulders from carrying a pet though.
