Gotcha! Covetous Canines Fetchingly Pranked by Stuffed Dog Puppet [Video]

Scientists have already discovered that your dog gets jealous when you pay attention to another pooch, but what happens when they’re faced with a spazzy yap-meister of a dog (or in this case, a puppet) with a mouth-wateringly delicious bone that they would positively love to nosh on?

Just for Laughs usually pulls pranks on mammals of the human variety; this time, they decided to turn the tables on our furry friends.

The JFL crew set up a hidden camera in a local park and got down to business, setting up a fake planter box (which housed a human puppeteer) for the dog puppet to chill out beside. The puppet also had a rather delectable-looking bone that would be hard for any pooch to resist.

The dogs initially approached with caution, some trying to greet the puppet with tails-a-wagging. But when the dogs get too close, the stuffed dog goes berserk — scaring the tails off the real pups, who were surely thinking, “OMG OMG OMG!! I just wanted to play… get me outta here!”

Not to worry, though. The dogs pull it together and hilariously fight (or in this case, bark) back. Keep your eyes peeled for the black lab, who ultimately puts the ornery imposter puppet in its place! Watch the video below.
