We’ve all whiled away far too much time watching dogs skateboarding and cats playing the piano on the internet, but what if you could teach your own pet to do the same?

This sweet eight-parter, hosted by Alexander Armstrong, sees animal trainers Nando Brown and Jo-Rosie Haffenden work with different pets – some unusual! – to teach them clever tricks.

Our favourite trick sees cat River learn to ride on the back of very patient dog Moss!

We defy you not to start testing out your own pooches, pussycats and even pigs to see what they might be able to do.
