It's no secret that puppies often struggle with stairs, but the key is perseverance.

Meet Peanut Butter, the 9-week-old corgi who refused to quit while trying to make his way down the stairs.

Alvin Hsu, Peanut Butter's owner who posted the video, plays coach to the tiny corgi, coaxing him to take it step by step.

Peanut Butter hesitantly makes it down two steps before panicking and retreating back up to the top. We still give him an A for effort — it's not easy taking the steps with those tiny corgi legs.

Perhaps Peanut Butter could have taken a cue from this pup, who opts to utilize a belly slide for an easy and efficient ride to the bottom of the stairs.
