Model spotted dog training while out and about in New York

Friday, 5th August 2011

Dog collar and lead in hand, Russian model Irina Shayk has been spotted undertaking some much-needed training of her pet pooch.

The 25-year-old, who has been dating footballer Christiano Ronaldo since last year, was pictured in the Daily Mail telling her Labrador Caesar off for being disobedient.

She is seen telling her four-legged friend to sit down while she gives him a little scolding for an unknown faux pas.

A little later, however, she is seen giving Caesar a pet, suggesting she forgave him for whatever misdemeanour he had done.

Walking her pooch could be one of the ways Shayk stays in shape, as the model revealed she does not diet.

The news provider quotes her as saying: "I'm never dieting, but it's very important to take care of your health. I work out a lot, love boxing and Pilates, but I also eat healthy food and drink a lot of water."

Not to be outshined by his famous owner, Caesar has his own claim to fame, as Shayk claims he is the offspring of the dogs who played the title role in hit movie Marley & Me.
