Dogs and babies together are sure to bring a smile to your face, but these sweet pups show that they know a thing or two about getting around and are willing to share that info. Watch as these pups help their families’ youngest members get the crawling thing down pat.
Buddy’s baby crawling school
This adorable video has hit YouTube big time with well over 2 million views in less than a week, and it’s no wonder — it’s short, sweet and super cute. It’s delightful to watch the baby try to pat her dog Buddy, and then she gets down to business trying to creep across the floor. After watching her for a moment, Buddy has apparently had enough because he sprawls down beside her to give a proper demonstration. Adorable.

Dog teaches baby to crawl
Baby Samantha doesn’t seem to have the whole crawling thing down yet, but never fear, Buster the dog is here. He quickly demonstrates a proper crawl, then backs away for Samantha to take over.
