Awww. This made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Hubby saw this a couple days ago, I guess on the news, and told me about it. So glad you posted it :)


That was too cool! We always make sure and start working with our guide pups on stairs. I noticed they have more difficulty with the wood floors like in the video because it's slippery. It's much easier for the pups to learn on carpeted steps.


AWWW that is just special. Animals are way smarter than us...really.



I have this on my facebook page, it's so awesome! I love how the older dog kept going back and checking on the puppy. At one point I thought he was going to carry her down the stairs. :-)


What a great teacher! It's funny, I came across an article once that dogs don't really learn by mimicking, which I thought was odd, because Meadow learned a lot of behaviors by mimicking my other dogs. And this video sure says differently.


I agree. I can think of many times when I've seen dogs learning by mimicking other dogs or humans.


i loved this..so cute.


That is just too cute.

I know some humans who could learn a lesson about teaching from the big dog. Encouraging but neither pushing or letting the pup give up.


I had to teach my Pekingese to walk up the stairs by placing a piece of food on each step. I never was able to teach him how to walk down the steps though:(

My dogs have always been the best teachers...we do the same with the doggie door for puppies and fosters!
