You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and you definitely can’t teach a giant dog how to hula hoop, even if you’re as patient and caring a teacher as this young girl.

Despite the toddler teacher’s insistence that hula hooping is “fun, really fun,” her gigantic fluffy counterpart seems to lack in confidence, comprehension, interest, or perhaps a combination of the three.

No matter, young lady. While you may ultimately fail in your goal of teaching your dog how to hula hoop, your patience and upbeat attitude will surely take you far in life.
