When a new pet joins the family, it’s not uncommon for the established pet to become a little frustrated. This is especially true when the newcomer doesn’t quite grasp the household routine or the tricks that earn them treats.

Interestingly, this isn’t just a human observation. In a recent TikTok video, we see this dynamic play out in the most delightful way.

Posted on February 7 by user @laurenduhig, the video features a 9-year-old Labrador named Carter and his younger sibling Rosie. According to their owner, Lauren Duhig, Rosie has been part of the family since she was a pup.

However, even after nearly two years, Rosie still hasn’t quite mastered the art of performing tricks for treats, much to Carter’s chagrin.


Lauren may have the patience of a saint when it comes to teaching Rosie tricks, but Carter, it seems, does not share this virtue. He simply can’t comprehend why Rosie hasn’t caught on yet.

In the video, we see Carter taking matters into his own paws, quite literally. The caption of the video reads, “Carter doesn’t play around when it comes to treats.”

When Rosie fails to sit or lie down on command, Carter intervenes. He places his paw on her back, holding her in place. His hope is that Rosie will finally make the connection – staying in position equals a tasty treat.

But Carter’s intervention isn’t solely altruistic. He knows that the quicker Rosie performs the trick correctly, the sooner they both get their well-deserved treats.

“From the day we brought Rosie home, Carter has always lost his patience when it came to training Rosie,” Duhig said. “It was almost like he was saying, ‘These tricks aren’t even hard, come on.’”

According to Duhig, both dogs have big personalities, but they couldn’t be more different. Carter is the sensible one, able to discern right from wrong. Rosie, on the other hand, is the typical energetic younger sibling.
