Have you ever tried balancing a glass of water on your head and failed miserably? Well, maybe Harlso the Balancing Hound can show you how it’s done. This adorable 4-year-old puppy from Belfast, Northern Ireland recently became a huge Instagram star thanks to the fact that he can successfully balance anything from a beer mug to doughnuts on his head.
The dog’s owners Jennifer Scott and Paul Lavery noticed Harlso’s balancing skills by accident. They placed a toy chicken on his head as a joke and realized that the pup didn’t move for two minutes.
“He froze and just stayed, stared at the chicken at the end of his nose,” – Lavery shared.
Harlso’s owners shared this photo on social media and quickly discovered that people were amazed by his skills. He started gaining a huge following on social media, with internet users nicknaming him The King of Balancing.
According to Lavery, Harslo enjoys doing these tricks and gets a reward for his efforts each time.
“He sees it as a game,” – explained Lavery. “He gets the toy and gets treats, belly rubs and plays for standing still for the camera.”
