A Norwegian pet owner shared a video showing off her dog's unusual and useful signature trick: doing laundry.

The video, posted to YouTube by Goril Elise Hoff Olsen, shows Champis the dog helping out his owner by doing her laundry.

Champis loads the washer with clothes and shuts the door before showing off his ability to balance three pods of soap on his head at one time.

The canine then jumps up onto his hind legs and pushes the button the start the cycle before celebrating with a high five.

Champis watches the washer operate and spins along with the clothes until unloading time.
