Bear loves apples. I discovered this by accident really. I was cutting up some apples for a dessert and a small piece fell on the floor. Zoom - Bear was suddenly by my feet and gobbling it up. lol
He also loves carrots and celery. These are really the only times he gets underfoot when I'm in the kitchen fixing my meals. Whenever he sees me pull the carrot/celery container or an apple from the fridge he breaks from his usually good behavior of pacing the boundry of my kitchen (he's learning to stay out of the kitchen when I'm cooking - small kitchen = easily stepped on or tripped over).
Bear stands on his hind legs like a jack rabbit, or leans with his paws against the cupboards so he can stretch his nose up higher, waiting for me to chop them up in small-ish pieces for him to eat. If he is good about it I will give him a few pieces. If not I won't and then of course he pouts. I've started to save a few pieces back so maybe he will recieve an extra special reward a little bit later when I tell him to sit, stay, or whatever I'm working with him in regards to different commands.
