Yes, I Bribe My Dog. What About You?

TissueBaylie

I couldn’t help but laugh

Yes, I admit, I bribe my dog.  I have committed the cardinal sin in the dog training world.  Cesar Milan and Victoria Stilwell would be appalled at my behavior.  I don’t even want to think of the scolding I would get for reinforcing bad behavior in  my dog, Baylie.  I have no excuse  for rewarding Baylie for bad behavior other than I am old, and I just don’t feel like running through the house chasing Baylie with the lid to the margarine container she just stole from the kitchen countertop.  Trust me, it’s easier to shout, “treat” accompanied by the rattling of the treat jar to stop the sprint.  Recently, I put into play a little reverse psychology.  The less interest I show in retrieving an object,  the less interested Baylie is to run with it or guard it. I just let her lose  interest on her terms.  Smart, huh?  Plus, I have to admit, it can be quite entertaining at times just seeing what she will get into next.

Dogs Are Getting Sick – Chinese Chicken Jerky Treats

As you may remember, not too long ago, my Baylie became very sick with a severe case of gastroenteritis and required an emergency vet trip in the wee hours of the morning. I attributed her sudden illness with a brand of chew stick I had begun giving her over the preceding days. In looking at the package, I realized they were made in Brazil.  I felt incredibly guilty for not doing my due diligence on this product. For days Baylie suffered through vomiting and diarrhea.  Thankfully, with IV fluids,  antibiotics and a soft diet, she recovered.
