For puppies, getting down the stairs can bear the same weight as crossing the Atlantic.
But, as seen in a video uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, one adorable pup named Chunk has conquered the challenge.
In the video, Chunk takes 40 seconds to muster up the courage to go down the stairs as his owners entice him to make the journey by squeaking a toy at the base of the last step.
“Come on, you can do it,” encouraged the woman behind the camera as Chunk paces anxiously. Finally, the English bulldog puppy takes a leap for puppies everywhere — so far that he skips the last stair entirely.
Next challenge: getting back up the stairs.
