Some of the humans think that training us doggies only means getting out the treat bag and teaching us stuff. But training actually happens all the time and with everything the humans does with us doggies.
Us doggies are always learning new things, even if you’re not actually teaching us on purpose. So you’d better teaches us the right stuffs, because we’ll teach ourselves what works for us doggies otherwise – even if it doesn’t works for you humans!
So if you don’t teach us not to jump up, we’ll do it all the time, even if it annoys the humans sometimes, ’cause jumping up gives us attention. We don’t even mind so much if it’s not happy attention – even annoyeds attention is better than no attention at all!
Pullings on the lead is another one, we really loves getting places, so pullings is being traineds by the humans if they lets us get places by pullings, even if they don’t likes it when we does it. They should train us not to pull insteads and use a special harness to stop us pullings, so we can’t practice the bad pulling behaviours while we’re learnings!
The same with barkings, us doggies likes the sound of our own voice. So if you don’t trains us to be quiet, we’ll train ourselves to barks and barks when we feels like it.
Some of the humans NEVER gives me anything when they’re eating (the BIG meanies!), so I never bothers doing the big eyes with them.
But some of the humans sometimes gives me a little bit, so I’m going to gives them my bestest big eyes every times they eats, ’cause sometimes it works. I don’t mind if it doesn’t work every times. You see us doggies likes to gamble and only getting our way sometimes can make us wants it even more.
I also knows that the humans gets REALLY borings when they sits in front of the computers, so I just traineds myself to go right to bed and sleep.
I haven’t traineds myself to gets really exciteds when I hear walkies or chewie though. The humans can be meanies and say walkies or chewies when they don’t mean walkies or chewies right now, so there’s not point getting exciteds until I sees the lead or treat come out!
Since my operations on my legs, the humans have to makes sure that I don’t overdoes it, so they won’t always lets me walk the direction I wants (they have this idea I needs to be able to walk home again too, because they say I’m heavies!).
So I traineds myself to just stop and refuse to walk at all if we goes a direction I don’t wants to go. It doesn’t always work, but sometimes the humans decides they might as well walk the way I wants, because walkies are Jasper times. So I’m going to keep on trying its every times I feel like it, just hopings!
