Such was the case of the video of a young man in the United States who was walking in a shopping center.

The boy and his golden retriever, until now strangers, were walking through a shopping center when it was time to go up to the upper level and to do so they had to use the escalators.

The boy walks as if nothing had happened towards the stairs, but his dog stops, giving him clear signs that he was not willing to get on that device.

But the dog’s fear of stairs is not unfounded, according to experts, it is something instinctive in dogs due to incidents they have suffered when using them. In some cases, unfortunately, it is risky for them if their leash, one of their legs or their tail gets stuck.

The person who witnessed the scene recorded the video until the moment in which we can see the young man and his dog walking away on the escalators.

The golden looks back with the confidence that comes from knowing that he is safe in the arms of his favorite human.

The dog is quite a celebrity, since on his Instagram he has more than 130 thousand followers, with whom he shares all his adventures through adorable images and videos that captivate everyone.

You are very lucky to have such a loving family committed to your well-being, that is what we wish for all the pets in the world.


He is not the first dog to turn to his human companion to overcome his fear of escalators.

In fact, we can see numerous similar cases reported on the Internet, in which golden retrievers and other large breed dogs behave like fearful big guys when it comes to this curious mechanism.

Jasper’s case became very famous on the Internet. This golden retriever, who has his own Instagram account, had a similar episode at the Brookfield Place shopping center located in the city of Toronto, Canada.
