April and BB know they've done wrong, and when Mom finds the empty Dentastix pack, they just can't hide their guilt.
Dogs are smart. With some training, they learn to understand what we want them to do - and more importantly, what we don't want them to do. Some dogs also have less self control than others do - and that's the case with April and BB here.
We're sure that they both try their very best to be very good dogs, but when Dentastix enter the picture, all bets are off.
This video captures just how guilty April and BB feel about eating all of the Dentastix. Look at the tucked tails and the flattened ears, and watch how neither dog can stand to look at their owner.
Yes, these are two guilty dogs, and there's absolutely no doubt that they are the treat-stealing culprits.
Do you have a treat stealer in your home? Some dogs are particularly food motivated, which makes it hard for them to resist the temptation of food within reach, even when they know it's wrong. The issue comes in when your dog gets into food that may be toxic to him, or when he eats so many treats that he suffers from an upset digestive system.
To help reduce the chances of your dog eating something that he shouldn't, it's best to avoid keeping any food on counters, especially if you have a larger dog. Keep treats up on a shelf in a cabinet, and consider adding child safety locks to your cabinet if your dog is the persistent type. When you have foods which are toxic to dogs, like grapes or chocolate in the home, then you'll want to be doubly sure that they are secured away out of your dog's reach.
If your dog does eat something that he shouldn't, then make note of how much the dog ate, save any wrappers, observe any symptoms your dog is exhibiting, and call your vet right away for advice.
