Liam Payne Had An Epic Dog-Training Fail

After seeing Liam Payne's dog-training skills, it seems he may want to stick with his day job. In a new Instagram video, Payne attempts to show off his dog, a Great Dane named Watson, and his listening skills. Unfortunately, it seems that Watson will listen to anyone but him. Payne attempts to get his dog to give him a paw by repeating "touch me one time," but all he gets is a cute stare from his very big dog and a few sniffs of his tattooed hand.

When u know you've trained him really well ?

But when a woman chimes in to get Watson to listen, he seems much more in tune. He gives her a paw and low five with only one ask. In the end, Payne does get his dog to listen to him — sort of. Let's just say it's clear Watson can lay down on and off command. "When u know you've trained him really well," Payne sarcastically captioned the clip. Don't worry, though, Payne and his dog are in sync when it comes to singing. The two showed off their howls in another clip. Maybe Watson could be an honorary member of One Direction if the hiatus ever ends.

Missed this crazy pup
