Anyones Havs have treat rituals?
I give Timmy treats on two occasions, when we're formally training and also when he's done something good when I"m not actually asking him to do something, I'll explain later. When we're training and I give him treats he'll gobble them down right away. Here's the second scenario, I'll give him a treat after we've been outside when I say "Let's go inside and I'll give you a treat.", then it's a whole different story. He has a love affair with these treats. He'll lay down in front of them and just stare admiringly at them, nose to treat. He'll also give them a sniff and prance around in a circle. He'll carry it around in his mouth and deposit them in various places like his bed, in the corner of the room and even go back to move it somewhere else. This game can go on for an hour, it's very funny. Sometimes when he leaves his deposited treats the cats will find them. He gets VERY MAD, charging at Zuzu and ReeRee, barking to defend his little treat, but still won't eat it. So do your havs do anything silly like this? I know if I try to explain thin to my non hav friends they won't appreciate it but I know I'm not the only one out there who has a furball with odd rituals.
