A little treat

When a puppy does something wrong, everyone is familiar with the training methods of saying no, spraying water, or raising your voice.  And when they do something right, we reward them with a treat.

At least for myself, I think I don’t do that latter part as much.  I’m hard on myself when I make a mistake, but I’m not as rewarding to myself when I do something good.  Even if it’s something as simple as taking a small break when I finish a task - we are all animals after all.

One caveat.  The puppy in the picture is a clever little puppy called Boshin (Korean for a type of dog soup…).  When she goes to pee in the right spot, everyone says “good girl!” and we give her a treat.  Then we start noticing that she sometimes pretends to pee and then comes to ask for a treat.  Or maybe she pees only a little.  I will need to keep in mind that the only person I’ll be tricking is myself if I decide to pull such tricky antics.

I just completed the MVP for TimeAuction.org yesterday so I took a bit of time for myself.  I liked it.  I guess this puppy still has a lot to learn.
