Dog Drums Alongside Drumming Teacher Owner (VIDEO)

Matt Smothers is a drumming teacher who works in Reno, Neveda. Now we can't speak for how good he is at teaching humans how to drum - our guess: pretty good - but we do know he's a dab hand at teaching dogs how to dig. Sorry, drum.

Scrambling away at his owner's bass drum, we're not going to say it's finest bit of rhythm keeping we've ever heard, but you've got to admire the cuddly canine's get up and go.

And they say you can't teach an old dog new tricks... something we can happily refute thanks to our tried and true 'dog tricks' video gallery we've got for you below. Enjoy!
