Via reddit, wherein the best comment was along the lines of "this dog is going to spend the rest of his life telling his puppy pals about this, and they'll never believe him."

The dog seems remarkably unstressed. Like, "this happens all the time".

Exactly.

Then once he gets up there, he's like "I know how to roll-over, so let's party on the ceiling."

Epic gif, and no comments. Things are definitely not what they used to be.

subego: do you have a background story for the video?

Well without audio we have no idea how the dog reacts to crashing back down at the end.

All I was able to surmise is they're practicing stall recovery.

I was completely unfamiliar with this until my friend's uncle (he owns a small Cessna) decided to scare the crap out of us.

I just love how the tail is waging even as the dog was floating

Absolutely no reason for them to be in zero-g for that long during a stall recovery. Really no reason for them to be zero-g in a stall recovery at all. I assume they're just playing around.

Only time I held a dive like that for that long was to grab something I couldn't reach in the back seat.

I'll most certainly take your word for it. I'm not a pilot and that was just a guess.
