Cockapoo Doyle waits to have his feet wiped

This pristine pooch refuses to step on his owner’s kitchen floor until his paws have been thoroughly cleaned. 

Comic ootage captured by Howard Godkin, 50, at his home in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, shows two-year-old cockapoo Doyle waiting patiently on a doormat for his wipe-down.

The dog gently tugs at a towel in a basket before lifting up his paws so Mr Godkin can clean them.

Mr Godkin said Doyle had adopted the polite habit by himself last month, and now ‘asks for the towel’ every time he comes in from the garden.

Mr Godkin, who lives with wife Lisa Godkin, 47, and their three children Merrily, 15, Jemima, 12, and Benjamin, nine, claims Doyle has been seeking more attention from the family during lockdown. 

The owner, who works as an office manager, said: ‘I don’t actually train him. I give him his ball and tell him to sit, so we’ve done the basics but with this he’s done it himself.

‘We’ve got a nice floor and we don’t want mud everywhere, so we leave a towel at the door and dry his paws.

‘A few weeks ago he came back in, didn’t go to his normal bed and just sat there. He just looked at the basket with the towel in, so I dried his paws.

‘The next time I deliberately didn’t dry his paws to see what would happen and he lifted them and was asking for the towel. He’s been doing that since, even if they’re dry anyway.

‘Cockapoos can never decide if they need to be in or out of the house so he’s constantly asking to go out and come back in again.

‘We’ve got quite a big garden and he likes to sit on the patio. Aside from walks, he probably goes out six or seven times per day, so he’s quite patient when he comes back in.

‘He’s the model dog, really. He was house trained within the week. He had fun like normal puppies but never had any bad behaviour from him. He’s been a dream dog to have.

‘People have been saying they wish their dog could do it and people have even commented [on my post] asking if we can train their husbands to do this.’   

Mr Godkin, who named his dog after Ray Doyle, a character from the cult ITV action series The Professionals, has since taken to Facebook to share the comical footage with other pet owners.

In a post he wrote: ‘Our boy’s new thing to do is come in from the garden, sit on the mat and then ask for the towel so I can dry his feet…even if they’re dry.’

After Mr Godkin shared the comical footage online, social media users praised the dog's polite etiquette
