After learning how to ride a skateboard, this bulldog now likes to move around on the wheels more than he likes to walk around.
Every time Kiko’s owners, Michelle and Abel, take him out for a walk, the talented pooch opts to ride a skateboard rather than walking.
Meet the adorable dog in the video below.

The talented dog from Whitley Bay, Northumberland, has become a popular sight in the vicinity. He likes to spend his days cheerfully speeding down the hills in the area with Abel in the evenings.
Two-year-old Kiko is “completely obsessed” with skating and he just won’t leave his house without the four wheels.
He even drags the skateboard around in his mouth most of the time.
The British bulldog is “very serious” about skateboarding. He had his first experience of the sport in 2017 when he was just three months old.
Abel taught Kiko the art of skateboarding by guiding him on his lead but the talented dog happened to be a quick learner and started skating down the hills of the area in a few months.
Michelle, a mum-of-two, said: “When we’re at home he always wants to go on the board. He’ll always look at it to try and get us to bring him out.
“He’s completely obsessed with skateboarding – he prefers skating to walking.
“He takes his skateboarding very seriously, he practices a lot and in the summers he’ll go on his board every day.
“He’s always so happy when he’s on the board and he loves it more than anything in the world – but he becomes a bit of a nuisance when he’s not skateboarding.
“He’s better than me and my daughter, I think he’s better than most people actually.
“I wouldn’t dare go as fast as he does but he’s fearless. He loves a bit of air between his ears. It’s always a spectacle when we go to the park because everyone stops to watch him skateboard.
“People will always double take because they can’t believe their eyes. It’s a dog on a skateboard – and he’s actually really good.
“I think he’s the coolest dog ever.
Michelle and Abel lost Gordo, their “original” skating dog, in 2017 and decided to bring Kiko to cope with the sorrow of their loss.
Due to his videos being shared on social media, Kiko has become famous for his skating talent not only in his area but also around the world.
Michelle added: “It’s great for the kids to have a dog – I can’t imagine what a home would be like without one.
“He’s so big and energetic but he’s incredibly loving – he loves cuddles. Kiko’s great because he gets my daughter excited to go outdoors and stay active.
“Lara always has the biggest smile when she’s skating with him but she’s so innocent she thinks all dogs can skate because he can.”
