Which will he choose?

I was curious as to which one Brody would choose: a piece of paper towel or the treat.

To make it fair I used a high value treat (a small piece of cheese).

I put them both on the ground and let him go.

The paper won. He immediately went and snatched that up, then went over to the cheese where he momentarily dropped the paper to snarf down the cheese. Then he quickly snatched up that paper and ran off to hide with it so I wouldn't take it away from him.


So, which do you think your Hav would choose?

CHEESE. treat. hands down. she steals paper towels, kleenex, tp all the time ... she is totally food motivated and always starving. so she'd choose the treat.

I'm sure if he could have figured out a way to gobble down the cheese while still keeping the paper towel in his mouth he would have! That boy is just nuts for paper.

Rosie would take the paper over the cheese. She has refused it since the last time I got a pill down her by hiding it in the cheese. But, a meat scrap would win hands down everytime.

I had to give Finn antibiotics several months ago. He would eat everything I wrapped around the pill and pop the pill out of his mouth. I finally just had to open his mouth with his nose pointed toward the ceiling and push the pill to the back of his throat with my finger and hold his mouth closed for a few seconds (after I got my finger out of there! ).

Mine would take the cheese. Actually, Augie would prefer bird poop, please! We went back to Rally last night, after having been off for a month, and there were bird poops all over. Great distraction training! He used to love shredding paper but does not do it so much these days. Finn is the resident shredder at the moment.
