A SUPER clever police dog and his handler have been learning some new skills by using Te Reo Māori as commands - that's right - a police dog that understands Māori!
- American Police Department call out NZ Police in video
- NZ's roads where police are most likely to pull you over!
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!
