A guide dog keeps leading his owner into a pet store – without the owner realising.

Student Danielle Sykora was walking her dog, Thai, to the local shopping mall in America when her father noticed something that kept happening when they walked by the Cool Dog Gear store.

Danielle’s older sister, Michele, went along on another occasion and the girls’ father told Michele to take notice. As Danielle and her dog walked along, Thai began to turn her, unprompted, straight into the pet shop. Michele caught the moment on camera, and filmed her sister being led into the store, reported the Daily Mail.

Michele shared the video on Twitter, writing: “My sister’s guide dog always sneakily walks her into this store without her knowing. I love dogs, man.”

It soon went viral, being shared more than 130,000 times.
