6) Trim the Treats
Better yet, trash the treats.  IF and only if your pet does something to earn a food reward, a SMALL treat can be given.  How small? About the size of a pencil eraser, regardless of the size of the pet.  Remember, it’s not the treat, it’s the treat event.  Supplement the treat with lots of praise for a job well done so that her focus shifts from acquiring food to making you happy.  Treats should not be given as “dessert” or as part of a daily routine.  Resist the temptation to give in to a pet that is begging for treats.  This teaches our pet’s that we are not really in charge, and leads to annoying behaviors that can make them difficult to live with.
