This is the moment a clever police dog demonstrates the ultimate test of restraint by balancing a tasty sausage on his nose before scoffing it whole. The pooch, whose official name is Police Dog (PD) Krush, managed to resist temptation and only eats the tasty treat when his handler gives the ‘finish’ command.
In the footage, he is seen with his front paws perched on a chair, patiently waiting to be allowed to devour the snack, gazing with complete concentration at the sausage before he wolfs it down. The discipline displayed by the nine-and-a-half-year-old Dutch Shepherd was filmed by Northumbria Police officer PC Wayne Thompson. The food was given to the pair by catering staff at the hotel where they were staying while on a mutual aid job the provision of policing assistance between different forces and the film was made after they had finished duty.
The smart dog performed a similar feat on the same day at the hotel this time with Mini Cheddars. In that video, PD Krush sits calmly as his handler manages to stack a total of six of the cheese-flavoured snacks on the tip of his nose. The handler then shouts ‘finish’ at which point the dog flips the biscuits in the air and catches them in his mouth.
Footage of the cheddar snack obedience display went viral after it was watched more than 130,000 times on Facebook in just two days. PC Thompson, who works out of Houghton Police Station in Tyne and Wear, said: ‘As dog handlers, we spend more time with our dogs than our friends or family so we do strike up a special bond.
