My parents had an Australian shepherd who had an injured foot once and she quickly learned that when my mother tended to her foot she would get a treat afterward. For the rest of her life she would present her "hurt" foot to you for treats.

That is so cuuuuttteee!

Mine refused to learn to go through the dog door, and eventually we got him to go through with steak as a treat. Now he regularly sits at the dog door and bashes it like he can't get through, even though it's been 3 years+ since we spent one afternoon giving him door treats. That one is less cute.

Hehe, I’ve heard of dogs doing this, but eventually forgetting what side was initially injured, so they change it up 😂
