Some pooches dither and wait for their owner to come and pick them up, while others do a weird crab-like sideways walk and carefully pick out their next step, all the while wondering why humans have such strange inventions to get them higher off the ground.
But check out this young pup, who has worked out a brand new way to transport himself around the family home.
The chocolate Labrador flattens himself out and launches himself down the steps, his tail bounching off every step.
While the males out there might be wincing at the canine’s unorthodox method, he clearly thinks nothing of throwing himself up and down the stairs everyday.
Closer verdict? Very, very cute.
