If you love dogs doing adorable things then great news: you’ve come to the right place.

A video has gone viral on Twitter of a young golden retriever puppy attempting to do an obstacle course – you know, like the ones you see at Crufts every year.

While most dogs tend to whip through these things in a matter of minutes this little one hasn’t quite gotten to grips with how it works yet.

At a leisurely pace, the dog manages to get through the slalom but has a bit of trouble with the bar that it is supposed to jump over, leading it to have a pratfall that Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin would have been proud of.

The clip, which has already been viewed more than two million times, really is slapstick comedy at its finest and has brought a smile to a lot of people’s faces as it is surprisingly relatable.

Thankfully the dog looks like it was ok after its fall. The true tragedy of this is that the animal will never know just how much happiness it gave to the rest of us.

It’s a dog’s life for some...
