A new video of a guide dog taking his owner to a pet store has gone viral on Twitter. The dog named Thai, was captured on camera taking his owner Danielle Sykora to the pet store Cool Dog Gear in Oxford, New Jersey.

The video was posted online by Danielle’s sister Michele, who also volunteers as a service puppy raiser, teaching them early socialisation and some basic training before they go into more formal training.
She said: “This behavior is definitely normal for a smart service dog. A guide dog’s entire training is based off making decisions for themselves to keep the handler safe.
“Because Thai is so smart, he will often remember places that my sister loves to go. For example, he will show her any time they pass a Starbucks because my sister loves going there.
“And sometimes, like in this video, he will show her a place that he likes to go such as this pet store!”
