A Harry Potter fan has taken her love of the books to the next level by teaching her dog to respond only to spells from the series. Anna Brisbin – an actor, YouTuber and Potter superfan – has taught her puppy Remus to do many of the same tricks as other dogs – like fetching a ball, standing on two legs and playing dead. But unlike most pups, the long haired miniature dachshund will launch into his tricks in response to Potterverse spells like Accio, Wingardium Leviosa and Avada Kedavra – accompanied, of course, by a few flicks of a magic wand. “I’ve been training him since May when he was two months old,” Anna told the Press Association. “But that was mostly just Stupefy and Wingardium Leviosa. “And we’ve been working on Avada Kedavra for a long time also, but he still will only do it on a nice soft carpet.” Anna has cleverly matched the Potter spells to common doggy tricks, so for example Avada Kedavra – the killing curse – induces Remus to play dead, and he will fetch upon hearing the summoning charm Accio.
