Puppies are so adorable and entertain us with their quirky behavior. One parent captured on video their 7-week-old Australian shepherd puppy learning how to descend stairs for the first time. The cautious pup is afraid to go down the cement stairs until help arrives.
The puppies older friends see that he is having trouble with the stairs. They gallantly trot over to the pup and show him that there is nothing to be afraid of. Each one simply walks down the stairs to show the pup how easy it is. Then they return to the pup’s side to encourage him to give it a try.
He is crying but returns to the stairs to face his fear. After a slight hesitation and retreat, the puppy gives the stairs a try. His large paws are carefully stretched down and then placed on each step. He makes it to the bottom without falling. He is so proud of himself and runs towards his parents that are praising him.
Watch the adorable puppy attempt the stairs for the first time in the video below.
