One 3-year-old English Springer isn’t letting his disability prevent him from having fun. The dog, named Keller, was born completely blind, but thanks to some tricks his owners taught him, he can still play fetch like a pro.

Using his sense of smell and verbal commands, Keller just follows his nose and his owner’s commands to pinpoint the exact location the ball lands.

The dog’s owner explains on YouTube:

Kellar was originally trained to play ball with the commands “hot” and “cold”. We later added “warmer”, “passed it”, “left” and “right”. The process took about a week for the basic commands.

If you’re ever feeling held back for any reason in life, just watch Keller for a little inspiration on overcoming the odds!
