During the clip, which was filmed on January 7, Ace calmly places his paws on each step of the ladder and makes his way up.
Just moments later, his owner is left stunned when he discovers his beloved pet stood beside him and says: ‘I’m up here taking down my lights, turn around and Ace climbs up this whole ladder by himself. He is now on top of the roof.’

He said: ‘I was absolutely shocked! Ace has always been curious and loves to climb things but never thought a ladder.
‘I had my headphones in taking down lights so I didn’t hear him come up, but when I turned around there he was!
‘You can see his shadow in the video once he gets on the roof and is happy to see me.’
