Ah. The Poop Treat.

Waiting for my "good boy" poop treat.

When I was a little itty bitty puppy four years ago, She took me out on Our side yard to pee and poop. Every time I did my thing, I was praised all over the place. So many “good boys” and “good Stuart!” I didn’t know what to do with myself. I thought I must have done something really good, so I kept doing it.

Well, to this day, I get a treat whenever I do my thing. Can you believe that?

Be careful what you start, you’ll have to continue it forever!

What You Learned Today:

  • It’s really easy to housebreak a dog. Here’s how: take puppies outside (or to a designated place) after every meal, after naps and after playtime. No matter what.
  • When puppies pee outside (or in a designated place),  praise BIG TIME;
  • When puppies poop outside (or in a designated place, praise BIG TIME.
  • I mean REALLY BIG TIME. Every time.
  • See. That’s easy.
  • Do you get a poop treat at your house?
  • (I’m really too old to get poop treats, but, as you know, I work my peeps. They’re wrapped around my paws.)

    I get a cookie! But I have to go in the house to get it…and sit on the rug by the garage door…and wait for her to put up the leash. Sometimes, I get more than 1….if it’s the Mr.

    sniffies,

    Hi Stuart

    You are on to a good thing here. We poop outside and our hooman PRAISES us still, but we don’t get treats…..

    Maybe we should?

    • I don’t know… you may remember that I had some weight issues a while back. I think you can REALLY leave out the treat part. But, on the other hand, treats are a good thing. REWARDS are good! Rooooooooo, Stuart

    We’ll have to tell our Millie’s parents, because Millie keeps leaving her poop treats inside the house for the family to find and clean up!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella
