Bed Tactics
If you suspect your human is about to kick you off of the bed, snuggle up close and give a
deep contented sigh. It probably won’t work if it is the human’s mating season but give it a try

If you have to go to the bathroom while playing in the front yard, always use the
newspaper that’s placed in the driveway every morning for that purpose.

Because you are a dog, you are expected to bark. So bark–a lot. Your owners will be very
happy to hear you protecting their house, especially late at night while they are sleeping safely in
their beds. There is no more secure feeling for a human than waking up in the middle of the night
and hearing your protective bark, bark, bark.

P.S. These are dogs’ versions of rules. We humans don’t agree. If you have any of these
problems, sign up with a trainer.
