Dogs Around The World Are Having Their Patience Tested In Viral “Temptation Challenge”

Practicing self-control around tasty treats is hard for all of us, but especially children and dogs.

The newest social media craze known as the ‘Temptation Challenge’ has many parents testing not only their children but their beloved dogs’ patience as well.

People around the world are taking part in the challenge as a welcomed distraction from the global pandemic. Since most dogs are food-motivated this challenge is perfect for them.

The challenge asks parents to place a tasty treat in front of their dog and then tell them to wait to eat it. With the camera still recording, they leave the room to see if obedience or self-indulgence will prevail.
