A DOG has been caught on camera pretending to sleep to avoid going on a walk.
English bulldog Kingston desperately tries to look like he is in the middle of a nap in the hilarious clip.
The four-year-old keeps his eyes firmly shut as dog walker Kathryn Beckert calls out his name.
Kathryn, 32, who lives in California, said: “My neighbor Nancy is going through some medical treatments so myself and the other neighbors step in to help her out with Kingston.
“I went over to take Kingston out for his afternoon walk and he didn’t even budge when I opened the door.
“You can see from the video that my attempts to disturb his slumber were not successful.
“In the end, food won out and he went on a begrudging walk to the end of the block before returning to his favourite chair.
“I couldn’t stop laughing. My neighbor thought it was hilarious when I showed her.
“I eventually manage to get him. I bribed him with kibbles, the only thing that gets him moving is food.
“We walk around our neighbourhood but Kingston usually turns back after one block or so. He doesn’t like expending too much energy.
“He’s hilarious and super soft. I love patting him he’s like a big barrel.”
