Doberman ‘plays dead’ for ice cream

June 23rd, 2020

Ice cream trucks are for dogs just as much as they are for children. Dogs are basically children, so it’s really the same thing anyway.

Kruz, an adorable 4-year-old Doberman Pinscher, got so excited when he heard the ice cream truck in his neighborhood, he just couldn’t contain himself.

His owners treated him to some sweet treats like the child he is but they made him work for it too. It turns out that this Doberman had some impressive tricks in his back pocket, and he pulled out all of the stops for a couple more bites of ice cream.

When the truck arrived at their home, the three of them went running outside. The people operating the ice cream truck noticed Kruz right away and couldn’t stop watching him. They were so impressed by his good behavior and ability to do cool tricks!

“He loves his ice cream… Now we try not to get him anything chocolate and it doesn’t happen very often. Where we live, in the middle of the mountains, I’m just amazed that the ice cream truck will run at all up here,” Kruz’s owner said with a laugh.

The man asks his pup what he wants and then he barks back, almost as if he is actually communicating what he wants. It’s so cute. As soon as the man gets some ice cream in his hands, Kruz starts barking nonstop.

So then the man unwraps one of the popsicles and the tricks begin!

The first trick is amazing. The man breaks off a bit of the popsicle and places it on Kruz’s head. Kruz knows at this moment he must stay completely still until his owner gives him the OK. Then when he does, Kruz effortlessly pops the ice cream off his head and haves it land directly in his mouth. Amazing!

The man breaks off another piece of ice cream and it’s time for the next trick. This time, he demands that his dog plays dead — and he listens! In fact, he totally nails it. He immediately got onto the ground and laid out as if he was no longer there.

When the man gave him the green light, Kruz popped back up — full with life and ready to claim his well-deserved ice cream.

Later on, when the couple is enjoying their own ice cream, they save the very last bite for their pup. Just goes to show how much they love him! And obviously, Kruz takes them up on the last bite with zero hesitation.

“He’s being spoiled!” He laughs. “Doberman Pinschers — and a lot of dogs in general — are like kids. But he’s so smart and has the mentality of a toddler. He’s more like a child than most dogs and man, the ice cream truck is his thing. It’s his jam!”
