    Default Training tip!!!

    Just wanted to say that if you use treats to train your puppy and you put them in your pocket be sure you empty your pockets!!! I gave my pup a nice shiny nickel this evening. I guess she figured i dont let her shop so she spit it out. Although this could have been a bad deal it all worked out fine. Always check your pockets. Funny now but wasn't then.

    I agree. I put a handful of kibble in my pocket and while I was in the shower, our other dog (multishittzoo) ate a hole in my shorts to get to them.

    Ken, been there. Also, remember to take any treats or kibble out of your pocket prior to doing the laundry. That, mixed with a tube of chapstick left in the other pocket, will make a real mess when it hits the dryer.
