Is Your Dog Smarter Than a 2-Year-Old?

Watch a dog and a toddler complete in a battle of wits -- by chasing a laser dot around the house. Sigh.


Editor’s Note: This video comes to us from Petsami, the YouTube channel for funny pet and animal videos.

How smart would you say your dog is? As smart as a toddler, perhaps? How smart would you say your 2-year-old is? As smart as a dog?

We’re not sure if this bodes well for either species, but here’s a video featuring one Dalmatian and one 2-year-old kid. What do they have in common? They just can’t seem to get enough of chasing a red dot that … hey, wait! … why can’t we catch it? It’s there and then it isn’t! What kind of sorcery is this! Oh wait, now it’s on the ceiling, now it’s on the floor, now it’s on the wall!

We think dad ultimately wins this round … after all, it’s hours of fun for the price of one laser pointer. He’ll remember these days fondly when his kid is a demanding teenager. The dog, however, will still love the laser pointer.

So who’s smarter in this video? The kid who lies on the floor or the dog who perches his rear end on the kid’s face? The dog doesn’t ever seem to realize what’s going on, so we might have to give it to the kid this round!

Well, this is one way to get over your fear of water. The kid was going to end up wet, anyway. The dog just helped him along.
