Everyone’s favourite robotic canines are at it again with another Christmas-themed stunt.

This time, the ‘dogs’ from US-based Boston Dynamics team up to put the finishing touches to an office Christmas tree.

The 90-second video shows two of the dogs crouching down to let a third put the ribbon atop the tree.

‘We hope you have an uplifting holiday season!’ the robotics team said in a message accompanying the video.

‘Spot was teleoperated by professional operators, don’t try this at home.’

Robot dogs (the model is nicknamed Spot by Boston Dynamics) have become a more common sight as they continue to advance.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Heathrow airport had recruited one to help work on a refurbishment project.

Since 2020, Boston Dynamics has been marketing Spots to companies that want to use robotics to automate tasks like inspections, monitoring, and mapping.

Perhaps now they can add Christmas decorating to its list of accomplishments.
