See Spot… help some kids play jump rope? 

Forget teaching your dog how to roll over or shake hands—it’s all about getting your pooch to hold one end of a jump rope. Think about it: This trick is all about actually helping you with something, as opposed to just for show. And this canine caught on film shows us how to get the job done, whipping around the cord for several youngsters. 

For his next trick, he’ll actually be doing the jumping.
