What's a reasonable number of treats to give a bad dog?
What defines a dog as good or bad?
In our book, our fur baby can do little to no wrong. Even after they tear apart a hundred rolls of toilet paper, run away to the neighbors or put holes in our new high-end sneakers, we look at those sweet eyes and can’t help but laugh with the joy that they bring to our homes every day.
For us pet parents, we want to give them endless amounts of love and an endless number of treats. So, I think we must first figure out why our barker is misbehaving. Are they getting enough exercise? Do you know what breed your dog is and how much exercise they need? Do you reinforce bad behavior by rewarding them or not taking the time to train them? Or are they just in their puppy teenage years of rebellion?
After concluding why, they may be misbehaving in the first place we can better define “bad” dog and how many treats we should give them.
Treats can be a positive reinforcement tool to train and turn your “bad” dog into a law-abiding pup citizen. Before you know it, those sneakers you left out will be safe and sound in the same spot, without any teeth marks. The toilet paper in your bathroom will not be torn to pieces and trampled all over the floor. And you will be able to leave your door open on those lovely summer evenings without your dog ending up at your neighbor’s BBQ and eating all their beef from the grill.
