Anyone with a dog (or the odd cat) will have done the “Where did the ball go?” trick with their pets before.

But video enthusiast and (dog) magician/mentalist Jose Ahonen has made a short clip where he hides dog treats instead, and leaves a bunch of bewildered pooches stumped about the whereabouts of the doggy treat.

Particular favourites include Tiasto, who storms off when the treat is gone. Salli barks furiously at Jose for losing/hiding the treat, while Torsti runs away in fear.

It’s also noted by Jose that “all the dogs got treats before and after the trick :)”, so they didn’t go hungry for too long.
