Do I look like a doggie who will work for nothing?!

Humans don’t likes to work for free and neither do us doggies!
If you wants us to do stuff for you like come when calleds or sit or stay, you have to pays us, but we all have different stuff we likes to be paid with.

Some doggies will only works for food and some don’t likes food that much and prefers playings or being alloweds to chase stuff. Some doggies will even work for cuddles and being told they’re good – but I think they’re crazies. No way would I work for just that – I’d even pay the humans not to cuddle me sometimes!


I’m happy to work for food when there’s nothing else exciting to distract me!

When we’re in the house and garden, I’m very happies to work for any kind of food, cause I like food and it’s fun to do stuff with the humans anyhow. But outside walkings, I don’t care about food that much, cause there’s so much more fun stuffs out there to do and see and smell and chase and plays with. So outsides, you have to pay me more than indoors ’cause I needs to remember that I has to listen to the humans outdoors too.

I’ll do anything for the humans if I think it’s fun!

So outdoors, I will do the stuff the humans ask me for really yummy food like chicken or sausage, but I likes fun even more than food, so I’ll really listens if the humans plays with me. I learneds lots and lots as part of playings with the humans, like Stay and Heel and Leave It and Come AND it was fun too.


I just loves to chase bubbles!

Of course, some playings is more fun than others. I likes my ball and my frisbee, but my absolutely favouritest bestest thing ever is BUBBLES! Man, I’d do anything for bubbles, they’re so fun to chase and catch and barks at. I will leave whatever I’m doing and come runnings if you call me and I thinks you have bubbles, cause bubbles are more fun to play with than anything else in the world.

Playing is a great motivator!

Some doggies like food or tuggy, or getting the ball, or chasing the humans best. All dogs is different in what they likes, but all dogs have something they likes more than anything else and wants to be paid in.

It’s up to the humans to help us doggies find out what that might be, so they should try all different kind of stuffs. Imagines if the humans had never tried giving me bubbles – how sad would that have been!
