Watch What This Rat Does When He Hears His Owner Sneeze.
No, they're not just the creepy critters that dart out of nowhere on subway platforms and city streets: Rats actually make great pets, too. Incredibly smart and affectionate, these rodents are beloved by their owners for those reasons -- and this owner took it to the next level by actually training her rat to fetch. Here's what she had to say on her YouTube page:
I train my pet rats using clicker training and positive reinforcement. Their favorite treats are cheerios, but they also enjoy working for dog treats, peas, and dinner left overs.
With that in mind, she decided to train her little critter to do something amazing. What's more: The rat does her trick on cue -- all her owner has to do is sneeze.
