The 3-week-old puppy delighted millions last week when his human dad, John Callaway, shared footage of their howling lessons on TikTok.

In the video, we can see the tiny puppy sitting on John’s chest. At first, it seems like he’s curiously looking at the camera until his dad lets out a gentle but realistic howl.

The adorable puppy copies his dad and tries to let out his best howl.

What we hear next is the most adorable howl! And if that wasn’t charming enough, we catch him letting out a yawn soon after.

What a cutiepie! There’s no wonder that the seven-second clip has been viewed over 14.6 million times!

John said that the puppy’s dog mom and litter siblings, who are a mix of black and yellow puppies, all live together and enjoy the same adorable howling lessons with him.

We can’t wait to see all the puppy’s siblings join in on the howling lessons!

This puppy’s howls, meanwhile, are undoubtedly harmless and downright adorable, especially since he’s getting lessons from his dear dad.
