Dog Owner Makes Selfie Stick for His Pet and the Results Are Incredible

A video of a dog filming herself running along a beach has gone viral on TikTok.

The footage, posted on July 15, was uploaded by Australia-based Dylan Gray, known on the app as dylan.mattgray.

The clip features a man standing on a beach, showing the camera his iPhone, which has been taped to a long stick.

He then puts the stick in his Doberman's mouth, and the camera cuts to clips of the dog running, filmed from the wooden make-shift selfie stick.

The unique perspective shows the animal leaping about the beach, before exploring a rocky area above the sand.

Gray captioned the impressive footage: "Her happy place #puppy #doglife #selfie #fyp #doberman #fup #beachvibes."

The adorable clip, which can be watched here, has so far been viewed a whopping 987,600 times and surpassed 154,700 likes.

Many people rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the wholesome video.

One TikTok user, Jess McDonald, wrote: "She's so beautiful. Makes me miss my Doberman son. I'm definitely getting another one."

Another person, Heidigeebee, added: "The scenery isn't even the best part; it's seeing your dog's cute face and impressive speed."

Sierra Rose joked: "I refuse to watch any other videos on TikTok. I will only be watching these from now on thank you."

Elizabeth Sherr added: "The fact that he doesn't know makes this so much cuter."

Some people also took to the comments section to share that their own pets may not have handled the task with such ease, including April who wrote: "My dog would think we were playing catch."

Lolz_ reaffirmed this, typing: "My dog would take the stick to the water and drop it in."

To this Gray, responded: "She did the exact same thing in between filming."

Additionally many sought to congratulate Gray on not having had his Doberman's ears and tail cropped.

Gray explained that: "Luckily here in Australia it's illegal to crop the ears and doc the tail. All natural."

Petplace says: "Doberman ear cropping is very common. Ear cropping is a surgical procedure in which a portion of the dog's ear is removed, producing ears that stand erect.

"The procedure is most often performed on Doberman puppies at around 8 to 12 weeks of age. The ears are trimmed and the edges are stitched."

PETA explains it is just to give "certain breeds so-called 'desirable' traits" and describes the process as "cruel, disfiguring surgeries that cause dogs great suffering."

It adds: "They are generally not even given anesthetics to numb the pain. Compassionate veterinarians object to the arbitrary removal of body parts used for communication, balance, and expression."

The procedures, although legal in U.S., is banned in many countries in Europe. PETA explains: "British kennel clubs outlawed ear-cropping a century ago, and cosmetic tail-docking was stopped the U.K. in 1993."

Newsweek has contacted Gray for comment.
