Tupelo, who goes to the dog park nearly every day, quickly developed a routine for meeting new people. “She’ll flirt a bit and then start gesturing and investigating their pocket area with her very long snoot,” Cannarsa said. “Unfortunately, she’s the perfect height to have her snoot exactly at pocket-level for most people! This almost always works out for her.”
Once Tupelo stealthily secures her treat, she will forever remember the target as a “treat-carrier” and will steal from them time and again. “She’ll never let up and believes they forever owe her treats,” Cannarsa said.
