A patient dalmatian certainly knows the best spot to wait for pats from the binmen in the same spot every week.

Adorable canine Dakota makes sure to never miss his favourite visitors at home in Eastbourne, East Sussex, every Friday.

Standing on his hind legs, the two-year-old places his front paws on a small garden fence waiting for the garbage men to pat his head.

Owner Ciara Shayee films the weekly interaction and even gave Dakota some presents to surprise the workers with.

Ciara said: “Dakota waits like this every week without fail.

 “He hears the bin truck coming down the street and then it comes around the back to the garages behind our house, which is where he gets to see them.

“They stop to see him every time and always give him loads of fuss.”
