The adorable video shows a human running on a treadmill while a dog named Draco places his toy on the treadmill and waits for it to be flung off the back, and goes to fetch it. He does this happily over and over again. The video has now racked up over 1 million views and hundreds of comments from users on the platform.

Playing fetch with your dog is a great way to provide them with exercise. Dogs require regular physical activity to maintain their health and prevent obesity. Fetch is an excellent form of aerobic exercise that can improve your dog’s cardiovascular health, strengthen their muscles, and help them maintain a healthy weight.

However, fetch is not just a physical activity; it also provides mental stimulation for your dog. When playing fetch, your dog has to use their senses and problem-solving skills to locate and retrieve the ball. This mental stimulation can help keep your dog’s brain active and engaged, which can improve their overall cognitive function and reduce the risk of behavioral problems.

Users pointed out that the woman should be careful not to trip over his toy.

“This seems like it could be so dangerous for you but at the same time I love it.” one user commented.

“Not him trying to secretly take you out for the life insurance money.” another said.

“Doctor – “so how did you break your ankle?” Welllll….” another added.
