It seems that sitting isn’t always the easiest thing for dogs. Those pesky legs or that set of stairs has a habit of getting in the way!

Check out these five pups who have turned awkward sits into an art form.

1. This Pug who just wants some dinner

He tried sitting the normal way and his bowl remained empty so he’s trying something else. It hasn’t worked yet but he’s not giving up anytime soon.

2. These dogs who’ve mastered the stair sit

Oh, so you thought sofas were the comfiest place to sit? Well, you’re wrong and these pups are here to prove it.

3. This Staffy who’s feeling pretty chilled out about life

Sure, this Staffordshire Bull Terrier could go and curl up in her bed but actually, she’s feeling pretty comfy where she is.

4. This dog who is trying something new

Every so often, a dog comes along who shakes up what it means to be a canine. This pooch is a rule-breaker and a trend setter and this, ahem, frankly bizarre position, will be all the rage in 2021.

5. This pup who’s perfected the art of the armrest

So, you thought armrests were for humans? Wrong! This dog is here to let you know that they’re actually designed especially for dogs.
