Viral Video of Baby Teaching the Dog Sign Language Has the Internet Impressed

We've seen videos of dogs teaching babies to play fetch and other games. But have you ever seen one of a baby teaching the dog a new trick? In a TikTok video shared by @_lynalove13, that's exactly what you'll see taking place. With 7.5 million views and counting, the clip is going viral, and it's easy to see why.

The text on the video reads, "My one-and-a-half year old teaching the dog how to sign more to ask for more pets." The baby in the footage clearly knows what's he's doing, and it's so sweet how he attempts to instruct the pup on how to sign. And just wait until you see how this precious dog obliges.

Um, so there are cute videos and then there are cute videos like this. What a gem this is! The way the dog (who is a French Bulldog-Chihuahua mix, by the way) goes with his little paws! We simply can't resist.

People can't get over the amazing bond these two have, and they're also impressed with how receptive the dog is. One TikTok user, @Melbel said, "The fact that he can barely touch his paws but still makes an effort 😭." @Via added, "Idk who is smarter, the kid or the dog?" Another commenter, @mrs_destiny_sawyer noted, "This is amazing, actually. The dog took to that faster than people do 😅."

And for people who were concerned that the baby was hitting the dog a little bit too hard, the video creator let everyone know that it's something they're working on. The pup didn't seem to be fazed by the little one's smacks, however, so the tot clearly wasn't hurting him.

We wonder what other sorts of tricks this child will teach the pup as the two of them grow up together. They're already shaping up to be quite the dynamic duo!
