Just when I had convinced myself that, sadly, I'm too long in the tooth to take on another dog...along comes this video!

I'm even a dog-lover, not by a long stretch, but this hits me in the feels. Absolutely adorable. Tbf I've always adored puppies. Just a shame they have to get big Razz

Beautiful how the pup's confidence visibly increased with each passing minute. His teachers are lovingly patient too.


(Forgive my cynicism, but I sincerely hope there will be no copycat vids where pet owners try to emulate this  . . . and overly stress their pups with multiple attempts, then cut out the bad bits. It should all be shot in ONE go.)

I know.  Laughing

People try to emulate cute videos and you just hope they don't put pressure on puppies to do this sort of thing before they are strong enough, just to make a nice vid.  It would be exhausting and stressful for them.

That is brilliant. The owner really knew how to teach the puppy that skill,and the pup watched intently and copied, what a team.

There's no guarantee that even this video was not a stressful experience on the pup, or that there were not off-camera accidents and repeated attempts. From the looks of it, the weight of the pup's butt often carried him beyond the next step, and he had to be caught.

Nevertheless, the steps were carpeted and pups do bounce. And the pup seemed to be thrilled at his accomplishment.

Spot on!
I didn't want to be the one to say it, but I'm glad it's been said.  Embarassed
Behind every perfect, cute vid, there could be many imperfect & uncute bits, edited out. 
A 2 minute clip which looks like one take, could in reality be a 20 minute clip comprised of several exhausting takes, then edited down to tidy things up.

Not taking anything away from the vid tho. It's nice, the owners seem caring.

I don't know. More like caution. It's not for nothing that the show Ridiculousness advertises it will not even review submissions.
