Pet dogs are usually taught to fetch a ball, gesture a hello and stay patient around their human friends. But there are some interesting skills too that they learn by observing and imitating. One dog decided to stun the internet by showing off his paw-punching and kicking skills with flips one wouldn't dare to attempt. u/majedhazmi, on the subreddit r/AnimalsBeingDerps, shared a video and captioned it, "I'm tough." It has received almost 12 thousand upvotes.

The video begins with a man hitting a punching bag. Within moments, a white dog joins him to demonstrate its ability. The dog keeps jumping and charging forward, intending to hit the punching bag. Despite its initial failure, the dog never gives up. It eventually hits the punching bag hard. People in the comments were stunned to see the pet pooch's kicking skills. "'Does your dog bite?' 'Worse he drop kicks you,'" joked u/BEG-FOR-MY-MERCY. "I'm not familiar with this breed, what is it? Kickboxer?" u/basko13 wrote hilariously. "John Wick’s dog behind the scene," joked u/Zero09ninE. "Look at him try his hardest. Just trying his best," wrote u/Horse_Beef678. "That's not derps (foolish) that's mad skills. Let me see your backflip kick skills. Didn't think so... I am off teaching my dog not to pee in the room for the 100th million time," added u/FrozenfarTsTf. "Way better at kickboxing than me. (Not that’s hard, I can fall over standing still) but I’m impressed! And look how happy he is to be joining in," chimed in u/EvilBeasty.

Dogs love learning and showing off what they've learned. If you wonder how much a dog could achieve just by observing, here is your answer. Loki, a service therapy dog, was recognized for her training. The University of Maryland Baltimore bestowed the honorary "Dogtorate of Medicine" on a 5-year-old Rottweiler in recognition of her work with hospital patients. Therapy and service dogs who participated in the training program received "dogrees" from the University of Maryland Baltimore. Loki seemed ecstatic on her graduation day. Loki's owner, Dr. Caroline Benzel, was a student at the same medical school. Loki and Benzel both attended the special ceremony where the pet was officially named a "dogtor."

Loki watched and learned. She learned how to comfort patients in the hospital while Benzel was studying at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Her calm demeanor assisted her in working in trauma centers and handling machinery, making her a versatile therapy dog within the hospital. Loki was also recognized for her extraordinary service during the COVID pandemic, in addition to his "Dogree." When the COVID-19 pandemic struck in 2020, Benzel and Loki distributed "Hero Healing Kits" to frontline healthcare workers, which contained items such as lotion, Vaseline, lip balm, instant coffee, and tea. Loki works at a local hospital.
