Dog Uniquely Overcomes Fears
Megan Mayer 3/16/2016
We all have those fears that we know are irrational but they are just so hard to overcome. Bentley the English bulldog from Vancouver, BC, Canada, has found a special way to fight back against what scares him. The 3-1/2-year-old dog is afraid of both ladders and cables, but he will not let that paralyze him today.
Encouraged by his owner, Bentley approaches the cable and ladder with a little hesitation. But as he reaches the cable on the ground, he turns right around and inches backwards over it. Once he has made it through the doorway, he turns around and walks normally again. As his owner says, problem solved! Now the bulldog can get back to doing what he loves: long walks on short beaches, chewing sticks, and eating large objects in a single bite. His special solution can inspire others, too. All it takes is a little creativity to find a way to conquer your own fears.
