Most countries are advising their citizens to stay inside their homes and strictly observe social distancing. With this temporary set up, many people realize how difficult it can be to do some tasks that they often take for granted. However, a man from Cyprus named Vakis Demetriou came up with an ingenious way around his problem of walking his dog while in self-isolation.
Instead of putting his and other people’s lives at risk, Vakis decided to tie his dog’s leash to a drone. Then, he sent them out for a walk. Vakis posted the video of his fluffy white dog while it was walking down a deserted street. The drone was flying overhead and keeping an eye on everything.

The fluffy pup looked so happy while strolling around the neighborhood. Because the street was practically empty, there was also almost zero threat to the pooch’s safety. There were no cars passing by, no people walking around, and no tempting animals were there to chase. So, the adorable little dog seemed so focused on the walk. Although walking dogs using drones may not be the best idea under normal circumstances, during the lockdown, this was undeniably perfect.
Toward the end of the clip, the camera panned around and showed Vakis standing on his porch while operating his makeshift dog walker. According to the caption, the clip was taken on the fifth day of the quarantine period. Vakis also sent a reminder to everyone to stay at home to be safe. However, he also noted that pet owners should not forget the happiness of their dogs too.
With so much limitation to what humans can do due to the coronavirus pandemic, many people find comfort in the presence of their pets. Although dogs are usually already happy to be with their owners, efforts like this will definitely make them feel extra special.
