A hilarious new challenge is going viral on TikTok, and for this one, you’re going to need to get your pet pooch involved.

If your For You page isn’t full of dog videos, then you’re doing TikTok all wrong. Dog TikTok is truly elite, with the app housing millions of videos that are bound to keep you entertained for hours.

There’s a new challenge that’s going viral on TikTok called ‘pretend to put your dog on a diet’ and it’s just as hilariously adorable as it sounds. Here’s exactly what the challenge entails.

What is the ‘pretend to put your dog on a diet’ challenge?

There’s a reason why dogs are known as man’s best friend, and the bond between a human and their pet is like no other. Whilst sometimes your furry friend might seem like the most stupid animal in the world, dogs are very good at understanding exactly what their owner is doing, especially when it comes to food.

TikTok’s latest challenge sees owners pretending to put their dog on a diet, putting only a small amount of food in their bowl and then filming the dog’s reaction. It’s safe to say TikTok’s pets aren’t best pleased when greeted with a bowl containing just a few pieces of kibble, and they sure let their owners know it.
