A pet dog in China is so hooked on skateboarding he has scrapped his daily walk so he can practice.
De Bao followed his owner's son around when he went skateboarding with his friends.
Mr Huang explains: "My son loves skateboarding, and after going out with him for a while, the dog became obsessed with the sport."
To avoid any friction between the pair Mr Huang made a skateboard especially for the dog, who was then seen practicing daily at People's Square in Guangzhou.
De Bao can speed up with his forelegs or hind legs, and is also good at changing directions and stopping.
"When he gets to a high speed, he puts his feet up on the board and enjoys coasting," said Huang's son.
