Dogs are pretty smart, but have you ever seen one perform as a cheerleader?
The Ohio special needs cheerleading team just added a new furry member, a Golden Retriever service dog named Cyclone.
While the group practices their performance for their upcoming national competition, Cyclone made sure to be a part of it. AJ Gamin, Cheer World co-owner, believes that this will be the first time a service dog is going to be on a competitive mat.
Cyclone belongs to seven-year-old cheerleader Harrison Chmura, who is non-verbal. Cyclone helps him stay focused during his performances and has also helped him come out of his shell.
Their upcoming competition is the Cheerleading World Championship in Orlando, Florida. Hopefully Team Zeta, and their new buddy Cyclone will take home the first place trophy!
Watch these talented kids show off their skills in the video below, along with a special appearance by the one and only Cyclone!
