The Snoot Challenge takes over the dog-owning world

Dog owners across the globe have been encouraging their pooches to learn and perform a touch command known as the #SnootChallenge.

Owners will encourage their pets to place their snout into a circle made out of their fingers or an object.

Thousands of cute videos have popped up over the last few weeks on social media. Wet noses poke through fingers, hands or even pieces of toast towards the camera in anticipation of a delicious treat.
