Such an adorable little liar 💛
Dakota, who is over twelve years old, still acts like a puppy the majority of the time. She enjoys meeting new people and taking naps, and she is generally cheerful. Food, on the other hand, is her absolute favorite thing in the entire world.
Dakota’s mother, Cheryl Dorchinsky, told us, “She seems like she is innocent but… is an evil genius within when it comes to food of any type.”
When Dakota’s family purchased a new dog door and wanted to teach her how to use it, they used rewards to motivate her. She was first frightened of it, but once goodies were included, she rapidly became a dog door pro and never looked back.
But after she learned out how to use the dog door, she rapidly worked out how to utilize it to her advantage to get additional food from her family.
Dakota gets a reward every time she goes outside to use the restroom, so she devised a brilliant scheme one day. She started walking outside through the dog door, sitting directly outside it for a few minutes, then coming back in and begging for a reward as if she’d gone to the restroom.
Dakota overlooked the fact that the dog door is clear, allowing her mother to see her sitting right outside it, ostensibly not going to the restroom.
“At first, I believed her, but then I wondered how she returned so quickly,” Dorchinsky added. “I’d keep an eye on her and see that she was doing it.” It’s almost as if you’re a kid who believes you can’t see them unless they can see you. She always averts her gaze. It’s amusing!”
Dakota is unconcerned about the fact that Dorchinsky has figured out the ruse. She still does it every day because the prospective rewards are well worth the effort.
“She seemed to be really proud of her con,” Dorchinsky observed. “In Dakota’s game, there is no shame.”
Despite the fact that Dorchinsky knows Dakota isn’t truly going to the restroom most of the time, he still treats her. It’s difficult to say no to that look.
“If I don’t react, she’ll bark at me (fuzzy liar) to let me know she did pee,” Dorchinsky added. “She’s gorgeous, and I’m giving in.” “Perhaps the reward is due to her not going pee on the porch?”
