It’s no secret that dogs and their nails are not always a wood floor pro’s best friend. But a pooch who went viral for refusing to walk on the hardwood flooring in her home is enough to make a wood floor pro say, “Good girl!”

The video, shared by @myitalianfamily on TikTok, shows a small dog that insists on walking only on strategically placed runner rugs rather than the surrounding wood floors. When the rugs run out, it waits to be carried the rest of the way by its owners.

The video has been viewed over 5.5 million times, and rather than a fear of slipping on the hard surfaces, the poster believes the dog simply prefers being pampered. "Ellie refuses to walk on wood floors and I'm sick of my parents falling for it,” the TikTok states. "She has my parents and the whole internet fooled."
