Trail of Treats Trickery
Does your dog disappear or hide when it’s bathtime? That is a common occurrence at our house. As soon as Leko catches me getting his bath towel and putting old clothes on, he makes himself scarce. Sometimes the little stinker makes it completely impossible to catch him for the dreaded bath. Once, I chased him all around the house and tried cornering him and yet he still managed to escape me. I was not about give up, so i decided to try a food trail as you’ve seen in numerous Bugs Bunny cartoons. I got Leko’s favorite little crunchy cookies and made a trail down the hallway leading into the bathroom. I stopped the trail right at the edge of the bathtub and waited by the door just out of view. I heard the sound of crunching and behold the little guy was falling for it! He ate every single piece and followed it right into my trap. As soon as he cleared the doorway to the bathroom, I shut the door behind him. He shot a look up at me, then back to the closed bathroom door, and then to the bathtub… then bowed his head down in shame. I declared victory.
