Puppy + Doorstop = Learning

Watch This Pup Learn About the World… Through a Doorstop!

This puppy is meeting a doorstop for the first time. What is it learning from this experience? Its learning:

  • How it feels to bite the doorstop
  • How it sounds when the doorstop goes “boing”
  • How to move its body to move the doorstop
  • How to move its head out of the way of the boinging doorstop
  • … and so much more!

Play, and exploration of novel objects, is absolutely vital to a growing puppy. The things it learns from seemingly innocuous, simple encounters like this one will give it a background of knowledge and experience to draw on when it encounters other things out in the world.

Also, it’s really cute.
