(Scroll down for video) A dog was seen teaching a puppy how to walk up and down stairs, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

When Daisy, a puppy that is just 8 weeks old, climbed a staircase in the home of its adoptive family, it screamed in frustration when it realized it could not get back down.

Luckily, Simon, a dog that is 6 months old, was there to help. Daisy is a very strong willed puppy, said its foster mother Caitlin Doucette.

"If it wants something, it gets it," Doucette said.

Daisy’s stubborn personality landed it on top of the stairs with no idea of ​​how to get back down. On the corner of its eye, Doucette saw Simon help the puppy. She immediately grabbed her phone and hit record.

Simon pushed and pushed the younger dog, repeatedly showing it how to go down the stairs. The hesitant puppy finally made ​​the leap by itself and was greeted by applause and a good job by its adoptive mother.

This is not the first time Simon has offered to help a fellow puppy in need. The Doucettes have hosted several puppies that were up for adoption at the Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue in Winnipeg, Canada. Simon has been a teacher and guidance to other dogs that have been hosted in the Doucettes’ home.

"We have hosted some puppies that did not know how to play," Doucette said. "Simon taught them to play tug of war and fetch. It was fun to watch," she added.
