A fast-pawed pooch has mastered a skill that school children have been trying to perfect for decades by skipping the Double Dutch, and has video of her four-legged feat.

Geronimo has been practicing the complicated double roped move in her owner Samantha Valle’s back yard in Long Island, New York, and now the two-year-old cattle dog mix has become an Internet sensation with almost 600,000 people watching her online performance so far.

According to the YouTube posting, Valle found her four-legged friend in a pound in Missouri when she herself was performing there two years ago, when Geronimo was just three months old.

“She loves to train tricks, but also has a knack for agility and frisbee,” said Valle of ‘Mo, who took just five weeks to learn the Double Dutch and is even able to expertly navigate the ropes from a distance.

After appearing on Good Morning America on Friday, both woman and dog will be hitting the national circuit traveling around the country with Stunt Dog Productions this summer.
