This is Ollie – a very clever boy who can balance a host of everyday objects on his bum.

The six-year-old Labrador retriever learned how to bow and his owner Alexander Morgan thought it would be fun to take things one step further.

Ollie can hold still enough to balance pretty much anything, from a full glass of water to a ukulele to a Halloween pumpkin.

Thanks to his skills, he’s amassed an impressive following on TikTok and Instagram.

Alex, 21, of Berkshire in the UK, said: ‘Ollie has always loved learning new tricks, but I didn’t actually teach him how to “bow” until October of last year.

‘He picked it up so quickly, and he was so controlled and still, I thought it would be funny to try and balance something on his butt when it was in the air.

‘I’ve seen loads of dogs balancing things on their heads so I thought it would be really funny if Ollie could do it on his booty.

‘The first thing I tried was a pumpkin for a Halloween photo, and he did it easily.

‘Ollie loves getting praise for doing his tricks, so I decided to keep training and go for even crazier objects.

‘He’s a really clever boy so it’s important I keep him busy so that he doesn’t get bored. Performing his tricks is a great way of keeping him active, and he adores the attention.

‘I’m really proud of what a talented boy he is, he always works so hard on his tricks.

‘Most dogs wouldn’t stay still for long enough to balance such crazy items, so Ollie really is a special dog.’
