Cocker Spaniel puppy is veritable Houdini

Five-month-old Hilda has worked out how to escape through an indoor gate – which was installed with the express intent of keeping her out.

"The gate is for giving our old dog a little rest and peace from the always very excited pup," said the filmer, who shot the footage on November 12.

"Now only one week after this video clip was made, she only needs a couple of seconds to do the same trick if we haven't locked the latch."
