The video that shows pet parents testing their dog's loyalty went viral online after being reshared on Twitter.

Those with a family pet are always curious about their furry friend's favourite human and actively play fun games with them to find that out. And a video shared online that captures just the same is a case in point. It shows pet parents running in opposite directions to test their dog's loyalty.

"Run in opposite directions to see who your dog loves more," read the caption of the video that went viral on Twitter. The video shows pet parents running in different directions to see who their dog follows.
