Dog Jumps Over Gate That’s No Longer There

This dog is so used to having to jump over a gate, that it does so even when the gate is gone.

This dog is clearly a creature of habit.

Routines make us feel more comfortable. They serve to combat the busier moments of our lives filled with chaos. Because if we do the same thing every day, it makes feel more in control.

A dog in a video uploaded to YouTube by America’s Funniest Home Videos knows this feeling all too well. The short clip shows the dog’s owner running back and forth through a doorway that usually is blocked by a child-proof gate.

The dog follows its owner, and because the dog is so used to the gate being in its way, it makes a huge leap over where the gate normally is, even though there’s nothing there at all.

It happens over and over, and the dog jumps over the imaginary gate every single time.

Routines are comforting, even if they’re completely unnecessary.
