In the company's video, onlookers can be heard cheering as Spot climbs and descends a steep slope without tumbling.
The robot also navigates through a patch of trees, walks right through a pile of rocks and sticks, climbs a set of concrete stairs and trots at a brisk pace through a parking lot.
Toward the end of the video, viewers watch Spot climb a small hill alongside Big Dog. The huge robot looks a bit like a lumbering rhino next to the sprightly Spot.
However, the company isn't divulging specifics yet on just what its new bot is capable of, so it's unfair to compare Spot to its much larger cousin at this point.
Boston Dynamics has been busy designing new bots as of late. Last month, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced that the humanoid robot Atlas, which was developed by Boston Dynamics, has been almost completely revamped.
Atlas - a two-legged bot that can handle power tools, drive a vehicle and open doors - will be used by seven of the nearly 20 teams competing in the final stage of the DARPA Robotics Challenge in June.
Over the years, the company has designed robots that can run like cheetahs, as well as lizardlike robots that can scale vertical walls.
