Can this skateboarding dog learn to snowboard?

A dog has found a way to get the most out of winter - by learning to snowboard.

Woody, an Italian Spinone, has always loved the snow - and already knows how to skateboard.

His owners wondered if he might like to take to the slopes, so tried him out in a dry ski resort in Greater Manchester.

Woody's instructor's say he is making good progress...certainly he's getting lots of treats out of it:

We wanted to prove we can teach anyone to ski or snowboard, even a dog. Woody has shown excellent progress – he’s been a dream to teach and we’re so pleased that we’ve taken him on as a new guest.

With a few more lessons, we’re sure he’ll master the art.
