Toddler Escapes Room With Help of Dogs

How 2 Dogs Helped a Toddler Escape Her Room Is a Must Watch

When the pets of the Cardinal house want something, they get it — even if it involves jailbreaking a toddler who knows where the humans keep the kibble.

So one morning, Chris and Nina Cardinal — parents to 15-month-old human Chloe and golden retrievers Colby and Bleu — discovered their daughter wandering the hallway despite the fact that they last saw her sleeping in her room with the door closed. Considering she can't yet reach the doorknob, they decided to pull video footage from their home security system to find out what happened.

That's when they discovered that their two dogs — one of whom "knows how to use doors" — had barged in her bedroom, woken her up, and coaxed her out of bed, all the while stealing her stuffed animal.

"Lately she's been dropping food for them from their bin," Chris said alongside the video he shared. "They figured she must be good to help feed them breakfast."
