In order to get anywhere in life, you need manners. And it’s such a powerful behavioral tool that even the dogs get it.

In a video uploaded to YouTube by Kyoot Animals, an older dog plays with a puppy, and when the puppy starts barking, the older dog puts the little whippersnapper in his place.

It starts out as just a silly dog-on-dog playfest, with the two of them rolling around and being all kinds of cute.

Then the puppy decides it’s an appropriate setting to bark, which seems like a vocal attempt at getting this older dog’s attention.

The older dog is having NONE OF THAT. All it takes is an authoritative paw, placed firmly on the nose.

Think the puppy learned his lesson? Probably not.
