This is one of the strangest videos I've ever seen
Thanks Eric, that is so cute. He must have been overjoyed as he was eating, so much he couldn’t contain himself. My dog has eaten his food in the laying down position ever since he was a puppy. He’s 4 now and still eats that way.
Do you know what brand of food is that puppy eating? I have a pet food & grooming business and would love to share this video with my readers. Can I have your permission to place this on my website with a link back to you?

So darn cute!! I’m betting this pup was a ‘top feeder’ on his mama and got used to lifting upwards to allow the other pups in to feed on the bottom row of teats rather than waiting for them to push him around. Bet he’s a smart one!
This would be amazing… if only someone wasn’t puling on strings. Since his back paws actually lift long before his butt and back do, this is a set up. Someone’s having a chuckle on you.
Altho very cute it appears to me as if there is something wrong with the puppy…I had a pup who danced with her back legs and turned out her back and neck were out of whack…a trip to the chiropractor fixed it and she stopped dancing when eating….hopefully this one is just an acrobat
So i,ve watched the video and read the coments all but one say Or Cute and the owners seem to think this is a normal behavior MMMM. Think again the first thing which i would do is visit my local vet and have the dog scanned. The dog seems to lift when he is swallowing the food maybe he has trouble digesting the food. But to encourage this behaviour will suit no one except if they want to show the dog in a circus. As for the string therory WHAT?
My family had a little puppy that did the same when she ate many many years ago. We have a single photo of her in a handstand just like this little pup. I’ve never seen any other dog do this. Very cute.
Hi, we had a yorkie right from 7 weeks old, he did thid too!, the breeder said that it was common for this to happen because their head was balancing the weight of the rest of their body around the fulcrum of the front legs, so when they reach forward and down to get the food the back end rises, they don’t do it if you raise the bowl up about 1/2 “. I think it’s because they don’t like to bend their front legs
Saw the video. Extremely humiliating from the dog point of view.
Would you consider treating your dog with a little more respect and let the pup eat in peace???
I too feel a little like it’s a hoax. But that being said, he sure is cute! Isn’t that a lot of food for one little pup? He’s precious but I hope he outgrows this – makes my back hurt just watching him.
The guy put tha kind of magic wire on the dog.. this is not funny…
I dont like to play this kind of “funny thing” with animals.. but it is just my opinnion.
