Viral Video of Golden Retriever Getting the Zoomies While Hiking Is Too Good to Miss

We've all been here, you're hanging out with your dog minding your own business when BOOM — they get a case of the zoomies. This can be bad news if your pup is running all over your furniture, but one man on TikTok has really lucked out with the unusual place that his Golden Retriever likes to let loose. Take a look!

Chris and Nala (@adventuringwithnala) spend a lot of time outside together. But the dog dad couldn't help but notice that his pup always got the zoomies in one particular spot. 

"Alright so this section on the trail Nala always gets the zoomies so let's see what happens," he said in the video. "I'm gonna keep the camera rolling to see what she does," he added. And yep — Nala definitely got all that energy out. 

People in the comments section were impressed by how well Chris seemed to know his pooch. "I’m not sure what’s better your laugh or the zoomies," @hwillis33 wrote. "Arguably the happiest dog in the world. You’re such a great dog dad. Love your videos," @hairberg praised. "Your videos are slowly restoring my faith in humanity, so pure," @katelijnb added. "Omgggg I love you both sooo much!! Chris, you inspire me to get out and enjoy nature! You're both an inspiration! Thank you!" @maddsdewitt chimed in. 

Isn't that the truth! We could all do with going outside with our pets more often.
