Trust can be a difficult thing for some people. Others may place trust in people too easily. The only ones who always seem to trust humans are pets. Especially dogs — unless, of course, we pretend to throw the ball one too many times. There’s one dog who may show more trust than any other.

In a video gaining popularity on Instagram, Watson shows just how much he trusts his human by performing a “trust fall.” As soon as Watson’s human says those two words, Watson falls back, believing wholeheartedly that he will be caught before he lands on the fluffy bed — and later the couch. (Don’t worry, he is.)
