4. Tease a dog with a treat
Treats are yummy; of course they are this is why they are called treats. One thing that humans do that annoys dogs is trying to teach him or her a “trick” by placing the treat on its nose. Not only is this annoying, but it is downright mean. Your dog is expecting something for doing a job-well-done or for being good and you are delaying its gratification. Imagine going out to an ice cream shop and ordering ice cream only to have the clerk dangle the toppings in front of you for ten minutes. Pretty annoying right?
