Women

OK, in every household I think there is always one person who tends to over-treat their dogs more than the other . Gwen has a bad habit of always wanting to treat Molly whenever we have a snack. I just came upstairs to our computer / TV/ bedroom with a couple of ice cream bars. And Gwen says ,"didn't you bring Molly something?" And I'd be willing to bet that when it comes to who's the biggest treat dispenser in most families ,it would be the WOMAN. Let's hear you deny it girls. And to the few guys out there, I need your support on this

Not going to deny it, Dave. My two get treats during/after grooming. Jack does no grooming. The 'boys' get treats when we work on training skills. Any guess who does the training exercises/work? (hint - it isn't Jack)

Actually, Dave, treats are pretty much reserved for those times. With Finn having allergy issues, and Augie being a bit heavier than I think he should be, we are kind of stingy with treats around here. I wish someone would come in and remove MY treats!!! Since I seem to be short on willpower!

Yeah, Dave, right you are but the reason we girls (in my case I use the word loosely) provide more goodies is that we are, by nature, more loving,more giving, more everything wonderful. Ask Molly

Riley gets his treats when he works for them. That means training (only me). The only other time he gets a treat from me is when I leave for work in the morning. I love him too much to make him fat!

Well, in this house I am because there is just me!

Now at my parent's between my mom and dad it is totally my Dad! He will constantly treat and he gives HUGE amounts. When I was visiting I had to tell him not to give Brody so much quantity at a time since over-treating will make his poop soft. Mostly I just roll with the flow when I'm there though.

Hmmm that's a tough one. Since I'm the one doing most of the training I think I do give Timmy the most treats. I try to keep treats for training and one at the end of the day if he's quiet when I feed the cats. Now my husband is the one who gives him his favorite treats "the no no's" like Cheese Its, pretzels, cheese, potato chips just to name few. My older daughter gives him veggies he likes raw string beans and carrots from her garden. I guess we're all a little guilty.

In my household it's the man who over-treats. And over-feeds. I try to establish boundaries for the health of the creatures, but he is just a softie. The only one who outdoes him is my mother, who as "grandma" spoils the creatures rotten. During her last visit she even taught the cat to sit in order to get cheese treats.
