In our latest Video Pick Of the Week, Stella the yellow lab shows us her “dog brakes” with an innovative way to pause with her paws!Dog Brakes Stella yellow lab

Throughout the video, Stella runs at top speeds across the verdant lawn, but when it comes time to put on the brakes, she comes to a stop in a manner we’ve never seen before!

Stella lets her back legs slump first, crawling forward with her front legs just another couple of steps before they follow suit and she comes to a full and complete stop!

According to the video’s uploader, Stella is perfectly healthy. She uses her dog brakes to cool down, with a tennis ball in her mouth all the while!
