    Default When did you stop giving food treats for outdoor pottys?

    I'm just curious. Bella looks for her food treats after every pee and poop. I give verbal and food treats for her pottys, but when I try to give just verbal praise, she looks for her food treat. LOL

    Mine still get some on the way in the house,on the porch. They don't get them everytime-so they still are expectant!

    We stopped giving Goob treats when he started taking himself out to potty. We leashed him up and walked him to the area of the yard where we wanted him to do his business. If we took him out, he got a treat. After a while, he would walk out the door on his own. That's when we stopped with the "potty time" treats.

    Hehe... Bitty Bella I'm guilty - Tyson is 9 yrs old, and I still give him treats. Not ALL the time, but most of the time. I just switched over to small ones, the size of kibble (fruitables) which are not bad for him - I do the blueberry & pumpkin. I only give him one, he probably can't even taste it bc its so small, but hey... its a treat! And that satisfies him.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Um....Never! Frankie will sit in front of his cookies until I give one. He thinks he is smarter than me because he will cry to go out, do a circle on the deck (no potty takes place) and comes back in and tries to act like he should get a cookie. I even have it on video because it is so funny. I will post later. Brutus has never asked for a cookie but will gladly take one.

    Hahaha! That's hilarious! I want to see!

    Bella is so funny. She'll go potty and I'll have a party: "Bella!! Good girl!!! You're so good!!" and she'll look from my hand to my face over and over again. I give in each time. I don't want her to feel like it's not worth it anymore. LOL! Plus, my neighbor has a GSD mix who's around Bella's age. He (neighbor) told me that he doesn't treat anymore when he takes out his pup. I guess I shouldn't compare Bullies to other dogs.

    Since we need to take the elevator down, walk through a long lobby, out the back through a small park- before finally making it to where they can potty, they still get the occasional treat.
    I think they deserve it for not going in the elevator, lobby or park..lol

    Ha!ha! That is why I slowed down on the treats-so they don't know if they'll get one or not! They were asking to go out every 5 min. just for the treat!!! They always have a plan..............

    Never had this problem. Butt scratches work just as well as a treat for my bullies. LOL. So yeah, I would give ice chips or the butts of slice bread as treat or butt scratches, ear scratches... they never know what they're gonna get!

    I got Bullied and loving it!
