Here’s a YouTube video showing exactly that. It’s an overload of cute to begin with, and then Ollie the dog dimes out Mom and Dad as they play hide-and-seek with Junior.

Note how Ollie puts his nose to the opening between the closet door and the floor. There’s no doubt he used his nose to help win the game.

This also requires the young man to have understood what Ollie was doing, and investigate by opening the closet door. And yet we adults have trouble reading our dogs’ body language. Hmmm.
