Christmas morning means one thing: it’s officially time to open presents! However, it’s not just humans who get to partake in the fun. Your dog is a part of the family, after all, which means they should get to open gifts, too.
A dog opening up their Christmas present is the definition of cute. Here are some of our favorite videos of dogs reacting to their very own Christmas presents.

It looks like her method works because, through the hilarity, she manages to get it open.
8. Pug Steals Golden Retriever’s Present
Toby the Golden Retriever is a professional Christmas present opener. However, Darla the Pug-Boston mix is a professional Grinch.

10. Patient Present Opener
Savannah is one patient dog. She is very well-trained and waits specifically for her owner to tell her it is okay to open her present. Unlike some naughty kids who open their presents early, Savannah knows she is not supposed to open her presents until her parents tell her. She even knows immediately which gift is meant for her just by the smell and doesn’t go after the human presents. Savannah is the type of dog every owner wishes they had.
