Teaching pets to do tricks can be, well, tricky. You want them to do something on cue--and quickly. But even though dogs can learn commands at any age, they have trouble generalizing them, say experts. In other words, a pup may roll over or beg like a pro in the family room, but if you tell your pooch to do the same outside, it may have trouble understanding what you want.
We think that's what may be going on with the pit bull in this video. Maybe it learned "play dead" in some other part of the house, not a bed. So when the owner says "bang," that pittie just gazes at the camera in the SWEETEST way. Pretty soon, though, it does figure out what to do, albeit V-E-R-R-R-R-Y S-L-O-O-O-O-O-O-L-Y.
It's the cutest thing ever!
