A video posted on Reddit shows how a dog uses its nose to turn on a tap and also turn it off.

Dogs are remarkably intelligent animals, and some videos shared on social media perfectly capture the cognitive abilities of the pooches. There are times when the creatures can also end up teaching humans a lesson or two. A situation just like that is recorded in this video shared on Reddit. The video shows a dog opening a tap to drink water. However, what is even more incredible is how the pooch turns the tap off after it quenches its thirst. The video has even prompted a few people to say that the pooch is "more responsible" than some humans.

“My dog Marshall will turn the tub spout on and off. At first, he only turned it on, but when I got a new hound they'd get excited and jump up the handle to get water and accidentally turn it off and I'd give her a treat for turning it off by accident. So Marshall started turning it off as well to get a treat,” shared a fourth. “I’m impressed! He turned it off afterwards,” wrote a fifth.
