Golden Retriever Teaches Owner to Bark in Adorable Viral Video

Learning a new language is a difficult task, but have you every tried to speak another species?

In a video that has recently gone viral on TikTok a man attempts to do just that, by learning his "dog's language."

Tyler Madeley, known online as tmades9, can be seen in the clip sitting in the driver's seat of his car, with a golden retriever dog next to him.

He then announces that he is learning to speak like the dog, before copying the grunts and barks that the animal makes.

Hilariously, he also takes the time to explain how to make the sounds, at one point pointing to the back of his throat and saying "it comes more from back here."

Madeley captioned the video, which can be watched here, writing: "My favorite teacher #foryou #foryoupage #fypシ #goldenretriever."

The adorable video has already gone viral on the app, despite having only been posted on August 22.

So far a staggering 10.5 million people have watched it and there have been more than 2.3 million likes.

The video has also been shared on popular dog-based Instagram account Doggosdoingthings, where it has attracted a further 52,300 likes.

Many people rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the cute footage.

One social media user, lavengeldogs, wrote: "A real teacher's pet, that one."

Another person, o308sniper, added: "A for effort but you pronounced rrrararr wrong."

Rochelle_isdale revealed: "One of my dogs will imitate me when I sneeze! Every one should have a four legged golden teacher!"

Weratedogs stated: "A good teacher knows how to bring out the best in students."

Gama joked: "You are onto something. Keep going and maybe we'll find out why he barks at the mail man. "

Charlotte Micaela Arnesen observed: "He's like: you're doing well, but focus on Grrruh."

Recently, a similar video went viral on TikTok, but this time showing a dog copying a human, not the other way around.

In the footage posted by Kingaxeltherott we can see a Rottweiler whose name is Axel, sitting next to his owner on a sofa.

When the man lets out a yawn Axel turns his head to stare at him intently, before opening his mouth to do the same.

The hilariously adorable video has been viewed more than 11.7 million times since it was posted on June 11.
