Dog owner Vince Matteson of Portland, Oregon had quite a surprise recently when he found his dog on the roof next to him. He was quite shocked at first, trying to think of a way the dog got on top of the roof. He thought maybe someone was tricking him or maybe he was just seeing things. Then Vince decided to review the security footage in his backyard to see how it happened.

The footage revealed that his pupper Ace used the ladder to go up to the roof. Very skillfully, might we add.

Vince found his dog Ace on the roof of his house while he was taking down his lights

The owner shared with Fashion Life: “Ace—the dog that was climbing, I’ve had since he was a puppy and he just turned 2 years old last week on the 14th. Super adventurous and not fearful at all. The dog on the ground is Bo, who I adopted from ‘Golden Bond Rescue’ in March! Bo is the cuddly one. I was up on the roof taking down my Christmas lights. I was on the other end of the house, I turn around and see Ace on the roof! I thought maybe a roommate was playing tricks on me and put Ace up there, but I checked my security camera and to my surprise, he climbed up the ladder!”

Vince was very confused on how Ace managed to get up there

We asked Vince told us about his reaction to Ace being on the roof: “I was absolutely shocked! I had my headphones in so I did not hear him, but I saw him out of the corner of my eye. First thought was to pull out my phone to document it, second thought was how the heck am I getting him down. I ended up calling a roommate to hand him down.”

Vince viewed the security camera footage later on and saw how exactly Ace managed to climb up

Vince mentioned he had no idea Ace could climb ladders. He was very surprised to find out his doh has such a talent. Vince mentioned that his dogs love to wrestle, hike, swim, and of course, destroy toys, but he had no idea that they are professional climbers, well, at least Ace is.

Let’s just say Ace has some amazing climbing skills and is the adventurous type

He managed to climb up all the way using a ladder to come help out his owner

Vince’s other dog Bo decided he would stay on the ground, he’s the more cautious type

Here’s how Vince got Ace down from the roof: “My roommate was home, called him up and the only thing I said was ‘Umm…. Grant… Will you come out to the backyard for a second?’ He climbed up the ladder and I handed him, Ace. Ace is about 75lbs, so it was definitely a difficult task.”

Here’s what the ladder looks like from above

Vince tells us more about himself and what he’s been up to lately: “I’m just a very outgoing and energetic guy which is why my Mom says that is why Ace is the way he is… I was remodeling my bathroom when that video was taken which is why a toilet is in the security footage”
