A crafty dad was able to build an ingenious garden race track to help his dog get some exercise during the COVID-19 lockdown.

On April 7, Matt O’Neill, from Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, could not help but laugh as his dog, Georgia, ran in circles around a row of rods, chasing a bait that was tied to her back.

The track, built by Matt’s dad Kevin, was designed so that Georgia would never catch the bait and would keep running around the rods indefinitely.

Matt filmed the hilarious moment and posted it on social media, where it went viral with over six million views.

One user commented: “How to keep your dog entertained for hours.”

Another one said: “Absolutely about to build one just like this, it’s genius!”

Matt said: “My dad gave me a phone call to come outside and see what he had made for the dog.

“I was laughing hysterically.”
