Constable Regan Mauheni and his dog Paikea have celebrated Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori by putting on a show in Dunedin where Paikea showed his impressive skills. 

Regan has taught Paikea to E tū (stand up), E noho (sit down) and kōrero (speak), to which Paikea let out a bark. The young dog is also able to takoto (lie down).

How cool! Keep that in mind next time you're teaching your dog some new tricks!
