This video is important for so many reasons, but here are the two biggest: 1) The cute factor. Obviously. There are just so many adorable dogs. 2) The schadenfreude factor. These dogs are out here livin’ the struggle, trying to navigate the tricky world of floors, and their pain becomes our pleasure.

So, here you go. Our Friday gift to you: three and a half blissful minutes of dogs sliding across wood floors. You earned this.

NOT funny.  I see no humor in setting animals up to potentially get hurt.  My dogs have been injured by slick floors!  I put down rugs to prevent them from being injured and use toe grips!  Please don't encourage others to make these kind of videos.

I disagree. This is NOT funny ... dogs can get easily injured, pulling muscles and tearing ligaments.  I have seen young healthy dogs slip and slide, as well as older dogs. 

Last year, my dog was injured because of slick floors. He would "wrap" his front paws around stairs to prevent sliding down.  It took several sessions with a vet that does chiropractic for the lameness to go away. 

My dog now wears toegrips to prevent slipping and sliding!  They are wonderful.  https://www.facebook.com/toegrips

I normally am all for the cute pet videos, but I think intentionally causing dogs to slip can be dangerous.

Hi!


Question:

When left with no choice but to walk across a slippery surface for a while, the effort of doing so leave my leg and back muscles aching considerably - it is most definitely not a pleasurable experience.


Would anyone know if that would be true for dogs as well?


Thanks!

@AnandaRay There is definitely the possibility. Watched a ton of these videos while making the compilation, I did notice the older ones generally take it slow on the wood floors, as if it was ice, or go great lengths to avoid it. Great fun when they're pups, but I would say, like humans, such things are a burden.
