Herd Treat Time – Film Friday

Treat time might be the best part of the day, so we decided to turn it into a Film Friday so you can see how we each take treats differently.

Of course, meal time is pretty awesome. As is nap time. And walk time.  And bug-the-Hu-Dad-while-he-works time. But, really, we love treat time.

Now, we know someone is going to ask, so we get Stewart Freeze-Dried Liver Treats. For the usual disclaimers, that is an Amazon Affiliate Link, so if you click it and buy something, we earn a few cents. And we have already made Hu-Dad promise to spend it on more liver treats! We don’t have any other connection to the company nor do we receive any compensation from them. We discovered the treats at our vet’s office and love them.

So with the commercial out of the way (isn’t that just like previews when you go to the theater?), let’s get to this week’s Film Friday – Treat Time!

    Do y’all do treats every day, or just once in a while?

      Treats happen every day as a reinforcement for certain expected behaviors (such as kennel-up time).

    Mom sez: I really enjoyed watching how each of them took their treats from you. A couple so “dainty”, and others, well, watch your fingers (or hand). Chinook, Kiah, and Ayla were my “dainty” girls, Ice was a “grabber”, and Ebby is kind of in between. I think the difference in my experiences were that I had Chinook, Kiah, and Ayla from puppies, and they learned to “take it nicely” right from the beginning, where both Ice and Ebby were full grown before they came to live with us, and both were raised as “kennel dogs”, not “household members”.

    I started to think Frankie was Typhoon for a bit. I knew Frankie knew to sit for treats, but that’s the most pup like I’ve seen him be in ages!!! Thought he was going to climb you for the treats!

    I still can’t figure out how a dog can simultaneously want you to give him scratchies…and not to touch him at the same time. That’s one thing I guess I’ll never grasp. Just another “special” aspect of the prince lol.

    LOl. This will be one of my favorite vids by you. Great music choice too. I have used Stewarts for years and buy the bucket as it reduces the price. They are soooo desired by my dogs that I am guilty of cutting each cube into quarters ( or at least half) almost all the time. The bucket lasts longer and the smaller bites are greeted with the same amount of enthusiasm. These are very highly valued treats for huskies. As good or better than salmon! 🙂
