My puppy: treats-for-tinkle scam job
My puppy: treats-for-tinkle scam job

M – So, my puppy, Basia (BA-shuh)  is 12 weeks old and I’m not sure who is training who. I think she is jiving me with our treats-for-tinkle program we just started. Since we’re trying to housebreak her, our puppy kindergarten trainer suggested a small reward for going potty outside versus my hardwood floors. It started out pretty good. She is at about 70% outside/30% inside. Now she looks at my hand right after relieving herself expecting a treat. I’ve noticed that sometimes she’ll squat and do nothing, STILL hoping for a piece of cheese. So now, if it’s dark out, I have to rub the grass to be sure she’s not scamming me for a reward. No pee, no cheese, Basia! It didn’t take long for this 3-month old furball to figure out how to work the system. What’s a puppy daddy to do?
