inappropriate instructor

this is the kind of person who works at the dog obedience school:

as i was teaching Cleo to "lay down," i would give her treats each time--you know, positive reinforcement. well one of the instructors comes over and says to me, "you really shouldn't give your dog a treat every time she does something right, or she will grow to expect the know, kind of like husbands and sex."

i mean. how does one even respond to that?

  1. When I was little I heard a country song called 'Men' by the Forrester Sisters (its awesome) and one of the lines was... "dont give them nothing they cant get enough of."

    and I can remember at 7 thinking.... this is epic advice.
