Dog plays football on virtual soccer video game

If you find it difficult getting off the sofa to give your overly demanding and energetic dog some much needed exercise, you’ll be interested in this video of a Jack Russell (one of the most energetic of dog breeds) playing virtual soccer.

The inventive game allows players to ‘kick’ a digital ball on a video screen pitch by standing on the screen, which all seems fairly straight forward until you unleash a frantic Jack Russell onto the pitch to chase the ball; a ball that he can never catch and can never touch.

The poor dog chases the ball around the pitch, jumping for it, managing to influence its direction but never actually making contact.

It’s perfect for the video game playing dog owner that wants to give their dog a run out without actually doing any running themselves.
