A video of a “pet-a the bulldog” video got 2.75 million views on YouTube on Tuesday, a milestone for an all-female animal training video.
The video, which has received nearly 6 million views, shows a trainer using a ball as a dog “calls” a bulldog, which is a breed of dog.
The trainer then points the ball toward the bulldogs ears, where it appears to hit the bulls head.
It’s not clear how many people have watched the video so far.
The creator of the video, known only as “the doggirl,” posted a video to YouTube in which she talks about the process of getting the video into the public domain.
“I had to put up with some bad press and a lot of negative comments about the video,” the creator, who is white, told ABC News.
“It was tough to keep the video alive.”
The video has since been shared more than 50,000 times, and some commenters have been asking for more information about the breed, which the creator described as “more gentle and more docile than other bulldogs.”
The creator, whose name has been withheld because she is a victim of domestic violence, said she plans to put out a book about the bulldogs called “Bulldog: A History.”
