A video has been trending online of a smart dog helping his owner get back in the house after she accidentally locked herself out.

In the video, the owner can be heard coaching her dog to remove the wooden security rod from the sliding patio door, which is preventing her from getting into the house.

After a failed attempt, the dog, whose name is Sammy, tries again and is successful. The owner is so grateful that she lets Sammy swim around in the pool as a reward.

In summary (as if we didn’t already know), dogs are the best and we don’t deserve them.


The past few weeks have been full of adorable trending doggy videos, including one of a dog getting his own private ball pit, one of a dog adopting nine orphaned ducklings, and a dog competing at Crufts who just couldn’t care less.
