Watch a real dog react to Google's new robot dog

Boston Dynamic’s robotic tech is making waves again. After showing off its current crop of humanoid robots last week in a video that’s since gone viral, a new video has been posted of their robot dog Spot facing off against Andy Rubin’s real dog, an energetic
Welsh Terrie named Cosmo.

Over the course of the two-minute video, Cosmo treats Spot the same way a dog would treat any other dog. Cosmo barks, circles, and follows every move Spot makes, so much so that Google’s engineers can’t shake Cosmo when they’re trying to get away.

Google purchased robots lab Boston Dynamics in 2013.
