Dog Owner has Taught his Australian Shepherd a Variety of Impressive Tricks

This dog owner has taught his Australian Shepherd a variety of impressive tricks - including playing Jenga and performing a trust fall. Florian Beck, 29, spends countless hours training with five-year-old Morty, and shares a uniquely special relationship with his beloved dog. The clever pooch learnt his first ever trick of bringing his owner a cold beer from the fridge when he was just eight months old. Since then, the mechatronic engineering student has taught Morty harder tricks which include playing board games and doing gymnastics. Impressed by his clever dog, Florian decided to film videos of Morty's tricks and captured on film the pooch performing trust falls, doing handstands and playing games like Jenga and Connect Four. His sweet home videos have become increasingly popular with dog lovers across the globe with his Instagram account now boasting nearly 7,000 followers. Florian, who lives with his girlfriend and her two dogs in Stuttgart, Germany, explained: "When I got Morty at 11 weeks old, I knew straight away he was super intelligent. "At first, I just taught him to bring me a beer and jump from couch to couch, but he learned it all so quickly so things naturally progressed. "I love making videos with him, and I plan to teach him even more sophisticated tricks in the future."
