Because he is not allowed into the house immediately, a collie begins to lick the window fervently.
He doesn't leave any spot dry.
A black and white border collie has shown its owners how to properly clean windows: an Instagram video shows how the dog perseveredly sat in front of the garden door for several minutes and licked the pane from the outside.
In between, he starts scratching the glass with his paws and then goes back to licking the whole glass.

Actually, the Border Collie just wanted to go inside, but that turned out to be more difficult than expected.
In an Instagram video you can see how the dog sits down in front of the garden door and looks inside expectantly.
But when nothing happens, the dog becomes active: it begins to lick the entire garden door pane that it can reach.
And that over a really long period of time.
He licks the pane for several minutes, pressing his nose and teeth against it to get even better access to the glass.
After a while the dog has to realize that his slobbering is useless.
After all, his owner is sitting in the living room and filming his somewhat unsuccessful attempt to draw attention to himself.
And what is the best thing to do if you get stuck somewhere?
The Border Collie gets on its hind legs and begins to work the disc with its front paws.

Unfortunately, glass is very difficult to dig away.
The Border Collie quickly notices this and gives up after a few vigorous attempts.
But why leave the undertaking altogether?
Licking the pane requires far less skill than digging on its hind legs.
So the dog tries again: tongue out and slurping away.
Meanwhile, the lower area that the dog can reach is already completely smeared.
The Border Collie is probably not really useful as a window cleaner.

But he keeps trying his luck, sometimes looking left and right and then gets back to work with full energy.
The video no longer shows whether the Border Collie made it.
After so much effort, the owners certainly had a soft heart and opened the door for their dog.
