A video has gone viral of two-year-old Percy the cockapoo playing Connect 4 with his human.
The footage shows Percy picking up the game piece and dropping it in the Connect Four game grid. Sarah Shapiro-Ward works at When Hounds Fly Positive Dog Training in Toronto and admits that Percy is “super into trick training” but that he’s just not very good at the game. “Once the token has gone in, he doesn’t know it’s there anymore,” she said.
Percy isn't the only pooch that has mastered the art of Connect Four. In 2017, a North Wales border collie named Alexis went viral thanks to her gaming skills. And don't forget the champion Connect Four playing pooch Cleo, who racked up nearly 50,000 YouTube views playing Connect 4 in 2014.
