Dog Refuses to Walk so Is Dragged Through Park in Hilarious Viral Video

Sometimes we all feel a little lazy, and can't be bothered with daily tasks, and it seems that dogs are not exempt from this.

In a viral video, shared to TikTok by a woman named Coco, a chow chow can be seen being uncooperative on a walk, and the internet finds it very relatable.

In the clip, which was posted on October 5, the fluffy dog can be seen lying on a path in Central Park, New York.

A man is dragging the reluctant animal along with a leash and the dog looks nonchalant as it glides past the camera operator on its stomach.

Passersby can be seen staring and smiling as the dog owner looks somewhat embarrassed.

Text overlaying the footage, which has already been viewed a staggering 6.5 million times, reads: "This is why I love Central Park."

Coco captioned the hilarious video, which can be watched here, writing: "This dog is me going on a walk with my boyfriend #dog."

The clip has gained lots of traction online, having been liked by a whopping 595,900 likes and 29,800 shares.

Another dog also recently went viral on TikTok due to its bad behavior; the husky was thrown out of daycare for lying on other dogs' backs.

The video, shared by Stephmalak, begins with a close-up of an innocent-looking dog, and overlaid text that reads: "When you get kicked out of daycare for laying on the other dogs."

The camera then cuts to a montage of photographs showing the husky in action on the back of other dogs, or caught trying to clamber on.

The hilarious footage is captioned: "It's called dominance #husky #fyp."
