We see this a lot as we are out working with out clients. They teach Wolfie things like "give paw". This is great when they ask him to do it, but they don't understand that they are conditioning him to do it when he approaches other people or might want attention.
Just to peak your interest, a few other examples of teaching Wolfie the wrong thing are:
- Jump on me when I come home.
- What do you hear? What do you hear? What do you hear?
- Get the squirrel!
