Many people have picked up new skills during lockdown, but who would have thought that being a 'skater' is on a dog's list of skills to master?

Well, Darrel - a dog who is a mix of pitbull, Border Collie, and Australian shepherd - is spending quarantine on a skateboard.

Hailey Adair, who is Darrel's owner, says that she introduced her friend to skateboarding because she wanted to make lockdown interesting for both of them. 

"It’s super mentally stimulating for him and it helps him balance. It has helped me too. I was finding it difficult to take a break from work but for 30 minutes a day I get to see him skateboard. It’s super entertaining for him and it’s been a really good exercise for all of us," Hailey said.
