Who's the culprit?

I think it's a female thing, because I am always giving my wife hell for giving Molly too many "treats". Who is the culprit in your family. husband or wife? Be honest ladies. lol

Well, Kodi gets lots of treats, but no matter who gives them to him, they know that Kodi needs to work for them. I do most of the serious training, so I dole out most of the treats. But I figure that every time one of the other guys gets him to do something on command, it's extending his training to respond to other people too.

So I guess he gets lots of treats, but I think of them more as "pay checks".<g>

It is definitely her daddy and he doesn't even make her sit for them! I get so mad - especially since she has gained nearly two pounds! I am much stricter - we girls have to watch our figures......lol

Is this a trick question? Is there a right or wrong answer? If so......sorry, got to stick up for the wife. I may need her to return the favor someday.

In all honesty, my DH is afraid to give treats. When he does, I ask him what the dogs did to earn them. Cute only gets you so far.

I am the 'official' giver of treats, but I have caught dh in the act of giving bites of his breakfast peanut butter on whole grain to Murray! Bad dh....

If DH makes any move that he may be heading to the kitchen the boys jump up and are ready to follow, even when they are sound asleep they hear him.
