The key to getting treats is very simple.
1. Always be prepared in any situation
2. Have a good nose
3. Be prepared to state you case to the mommy and daddy
4. Always make sure you have a good sight line.
Although making sure you have a good sight line is number four it is very important for after dinner, you never know who will want dessert. So it is a good idea to be able to keep an eye on both mom and dad at the same time.
I am trying to train my sister, she is usually up dads butt, last night though, she was with me. What treats did we get….nothing! At least we were prepared and we look so innocent, but when mom and dad move we are up and ready to get treats.
