Brave Bulldog Confronts His Biggest Fears by Walking Backwards to Keep an Eye on Them

When a wonderfully brave bulldog named Bentley, who loves to take helicopter rides with this human Bradley Friesen, encountered a ladder and a crossed cable in the hallway, he made sure to face his greatest fears head on. Bentley addressed the situation by walking backwards, never letting either item out of his sight.

Bentley has a fear of both ladders and crossing cables. Combined, they are almost paralyzing. That is, until Bentley can tackle his fears butt first…

Walking backward isn’t just for scary situations, however, as Bentley seems to like moving in reverse on any occasion.
