This rescue dog from Calgary named Milo can literally do anything. He’s two-and-a-half years old and has fans all over the world. You might wonder what’s so special about this dog that has earned him the adoration of thousands.
Well, this Border Collie Australian Shepherd knows 95 tricks and counting. You read that one right. This dog is so talented that he’s been doing a great job delivering entertainment to people during the pandemic.
According to his owner, Jessica Gardiner, Milo can grab you a Coke from the refrigerator; he can climb a tree, jump over a fence…just to name a few of the long list of tricks that he has already mastered.
His talents have taken various social media platforms by storm, such as Reddit, TikTok, and Instagram. Jessica uploads videos of him and his older sister Shadow who’s just as talented.
The little family has over 80 viral videos, but Gardiner says that they aren’t doing it for the fame—they just want to share some love and smiles during these crazy times. She mentions that if her amazing dogs can give her joy, it will be worth sharing with others going through tough times these days.
Jessica began her path as a dog trainer in 2016 upon rescuing Shadow, who’s now five. The dog helped her live through a challenging time in her life. She lost her son 35 weeks into her pregnancy—it was hard for her and her husband, and she needed a way to cope with the loss. Shadow came into their lives for a particular purpose.
Since then, she has also rescued Milo, whom she has been training for two hours a day, learning new tricks and perfecting the old ones.
And it looks like the training gene runs strong in their blood. Jessica’s two children are featured in some of her videos, seen interacting and training their dogs as well.
The Gardiner family shows no sign of stopping. They have recently added a new member to the pack named Anakin, who’s guaranteed to earn some internet love too.
