This is the amazing moment that a Labrador therapy dog named Magnus dutifully helps his owner during his workout.
The dog, 3, from New York, boasts his own Instagram account, where nearly 30,000 people keep up with his and his owner’s life.
Footage shows Magnus helping by acting as a weight during push ups and providing encouragement during sit ups by resting his paws on his owner’s knees.
The footage starts with the Labrador sitting in front of his owner’s legs as he does sit ups, with both of his paws resting on his right knee.
The clever dog is then seen acting as a weight by balancing on his owner’s back while he does push ups.
Magnus then assists with the downward-facing dog yoga manoeuvre by mirroring his owner as he presses his face to the floor while keeping his back legs straight.
And then as the man does more push ups, Magnus hi-fives his left and right hands alternately as he moves upwards.
Finally, the dog rests his paw on his owner’s head as the man pushes his face to the floor.
The video is just one of dozens on the dog’s Instagram account.
The social media profile also shows him in hundreds of pictures. In one, he is surrounded by cuddly toys as he sits on a chair.
In another, he is seen resting his paw on the steering wheel of his owner’s car, giving the impression that he is going to drive it.
A third shows him lying on his back while wearing sunglasses.
