The Power of a Dog Treat
Then one day he got out when the little girls didn't secure the gate. My husband, who was getting out of his car home from work just looked at him and said "Sonny?" very sternly and the dog started whining and backing away until finally, he slinked back into the yard.
He's a teddy bear in a mean dog outfit. So last Monday I took the trash out. He still did the charge the fence thing. Then I slowly approached. He started backing away and I threw him a grain free peanut butter treat through the slats of the fence (I asked his owner first). The next time he only growled a little. Today I got him to wag his tail at me before he got his two treats and he didn't bark at me as I walked back to our house. Never underestimate the power of a treat.
