We bow down to the master. There’s no way we’d be able to do this. Not a chance. We’d fail at level 1. And we’re 99% sure that 99% of dogs out there can’t do what this dog can do. We’ve seen some pretty nifty dog tricks in our day, but this one takes the cake…. or at least, it would if Carl wasn’t busy balancing it on his head!

This trick requires incredible skill, ninja-like focus, the iron will of a Tibetan monk, the mental discipline of a chess master, and the patience of a saint. When you see the first level, you might not be impressed. After all, we’ve seen dogs balance food on their heads before. The grand champion of the food balancing trick is Maymo the beagle. Because if you balance 100 fruits and vegetables on your head, you deserve that title. Fair? Fair.

But wait…. Maymo is a talented dog; no doubt about it. But Carl is next level.  From one treat he breezes through two treats and jumps to four. Things start to get silly when he balances seven treats without breaking a sweat, even with his owner taunting him!

And then it gets ridiculous. Because from treats that we’re sure are tasty but can be ignored with the right level of discipline, Carl moves on to … beef!! Delicious impossible-to-resist beef treats! How does he do it??

We can’t describe the grand finale, because we don’t want any spoilers, and we don’t want Carl’s hard work to go to waste. But it’s epic, and if you can get your dog to repeat it, please send us a pic or a video and we’ll share it with all our fellow dog-lovers. Talent like that should never remain undiscovered!
