Your dog has a favorite toy. No – seriously, I’d bet on it. A real favorite – one that when it shows up he goes nuts for. One that he chews on, hovers over, drops in your lap and then stares at.
This is your gift to your dog: play with that toy.
Play the way he wants. Grab the toy – toss it. Hide the toy. Act like you love the toy – can’t live without it- your dog will love it more because you do. You are his favorite person in the world – what could be better than his favorite person playing with his favorite toy?
Now, push it. Say “wait” and put his paw on the toy. If he starts to move his paw, say “uh huh – wait!” Grab the toy from under his paw, reward your dog by tossing the toy to him. Who needs food or a treat when you have your dog’s favorite toy as a reward?
It’s so easy to please some people – like me. I like watching my dogs have fun and learn.
It’s so easy to please some dogs – wait – make that any dog. Just let him have fun, his way, with his favorite toy.
It costs very little to please your dog – he just wants you to show that you know him. Give him this gift, and give it to yourself.
