    DefaultAny other Labs drool at freebie treats? Bank? Pet stores? &c?

    My drive-thru window at my bank always includes a dog biscuit treat with the completed transaction.

    As a result, Puff climbs over my lap as soon as we get there and tries to get her head out the window, all the while depositing long ropes of saliva dripping down from her mouth on my lap.

    At my insurance agent's office, I often take Puff in (leashed) and one of the women in the office gives Puff a dog treat. As a result, Puff acts like a maniac when we enter the parking lot, open the door, and she becomes like a 63 lb. dancing kite at the end of her leash. I've recently asked them to NEVER give her more treats because with them, she gets so rambunctious.

    Somewhat similar behavior at the checkout counter at PetsMart.

    And this from a Lab that's self-limiting in the amount of food she eats !!

    Any others with this problem?

    Any good solutions on maintaining good manners?

    Sorry Bob....I have two maniacs when we go to the drive-thrubank. They always give biscuits. Now though, with the recalls, I don't give them to them & they are even worse. They know I have biscuits & they aren't getting them. I wish I knew what kind theyr were....then I'd let them have them. Just sitting at the window they will drool. :

    My lot act like nutcases whenever they see a postman or postwoman -- all our local posties carry dog biscuits. Come to think of it, they do the same in all the local stores that give dog biscuits, too. I get physically dragged in. Luckily (for some strange reason...) most people find it endearing having four slobbery dogs lusting all over them for a biscuit.

    whenever other people want to give my dogs treats, i ask them to give my dogs a "sit" cue and do something like "wave" or "wait." people always get a kick out it, and the dogs are more than happy to "sit."

    Well Rowdy likes the bank because they give him one. However when we go to the shoe repair place it's much better, Auntie Holly gives him a whole bunch. ;D
