Dog Refuses Treats from Barack Obama!

Awwww, what a cute trick!

Now where is Mitt Romney so he can teach this bastard a lesson by strapping him to the roof of his truck???

Trying firing treats at it

Try firing treats at it from a drone. That'll work.

Rare video showing dog barely tolerating what Mr O promises.

Painful to watch. Mention Mr O. Dog turns away.

Even YouTube determined only those forewarned by a logon pat-down will be subjected to this sordid film strip search.

For those that refuse to subject yourself to a YouTube logn pat-down, http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=0a1_1333142551

Dogs, like Children...

Dogs,like Children have an inherent instinct for judging good and bad. This is a fact my dogs over the years have been absolutely correct about.even if I didn't know it at the time they were right in the end,Lol.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

This is just PR to earn sympathy from supporters.

Michelle's playing too, as she was slimed or something.

Dog objects to redistribution of treats...

Off camera

There is something off-camera that the dog doesn't like. Has nothing to do with hearing Obama. This is proven by the dog accepting the treats from "mom" after refusing them from Obama, even before "Mom" is said.

I train my two dogs

I think it is very clear that the dog was actually trained to turn its head on cue. The cue is the word "Barack" (or "Brock" the way she says it). The release word is "Okay," not "Mom."

The way I would do the training would be to use a technique called "shaping" to get the head-turning behavior, then once the behavior is established, associate it with the cue.

I have each of my dogs trained to touch my palm with its nose when I say, "Touch." (That is a useful trick when I want the dog to move.) I can have a treat in the other hand and the dog will still touch the empty palm. I have trained them to know that going for the treat directly does not work. (In dog-trainer lingo, that is called "default leave-it.")

Friendly disagreement :)

I said "even before Mom is said." It's possible that the release word is "OK" but I don't care to watch the video again. I will say though, it's more likely something off camera, as that is the simplest explanation. O's Razor.

Only the uploader knows though. :)

I think the dog handler is

I think the dog handler is the same handler Obama has. Everytime the woman says "Obama" the handler behind the camera, holds up a photo of JFK with half of a head and the dog knows to accept nothing...same way they do with presidents.

(or it could be that they merely hold up a shock collar for the dog to see...)

True, this dog in OBVIOUSLY

True, this dog in OBVIOUSLY very socialist, living entirely from handouts and clearly a dog fearful of master. If the dog knew Obama, I'm sure this dog would love him as this dog doesn't look like it would make through a single day without "Mom".

I didn't realize the mom was

I didn't realize the mom was stealing treats from her neighbors, and giving them to her dog. If that is the case, then yes the dog would love Obama. However, this appears to be a voluntary exchange of charity, and so the dog would probably love Ron Paul.

The dog cares not if it is

The dog cares not if it is stolen or donated. All the dog cares is that it has do no real work for it. If it was a cat and it was hungry it would go out and catch a bird or a rat...

The needy recipients are not the creators or Socialism, the providers are the ones who create socialism. A society of immoral people who will not provide for their needy will end up with tyrants who "take" for the needy. A society of moral people who give freely to those in need will not find itself succumbing to socialist tyrants.

But in the case of the lazy recipient, those who can work but prefer to have the "system" provide for them...these recipients are ALSO the creators of Socialism.

I know what you're saying but,..

The dog gives the family companionship, entertainment, and protection. The family gives the dog food and shelter. I'm picking up what you're putting down, but I don't see this as an example of socialism. Socialists and authoritarians use force. I see no force being used here. The people bought the dog, the dog is happy to be there. What do you want the dog to do? Should he escape through the fence, and go kill a squirrel?

"Where liberty is, there is my country." -Benjamin Franklin

Joking?

I do not know if you literally think the dog is fearful of the woman. I will assume you meant it as a joke, like saying the dog is socialist.

The woman obviously knows how to train dogs. The dog is not the least bit apprehensive. I doubt that she has ever so much as raised her voice or said "No!" to the dog, much less punished it. That head-turning behavior can be taught with rewards, and I would bet a large bag of kibble that's how she did it. The only question is whether she used luring or shaping to "get" the behavior.

P.s. That was not me who down-arrowed.

Understand this is true about

Understand this is true about training dogs, you don't have to punish them but can accomplish training by reward instead. Thing is it takes time. I had a Retriever that was digging holes all over the backyard, and I know that in time I could have trained him to stop by reward. But it only took one afternoon with the trusty ole shock collar. Only had to briefly shock the dog 2 times and that dog never dug another hole ANYWHERE. The dog had no hard feelings toward me, great loving dog with no cowardice.

And I'm a believer in taking my own medicine. I strapped the collar on my left arm before shocking the dog and gave myself a little jolt. Other than a constant slight twitch in my entire left side for the past 15 years there just ain't that much to them shock collars.

Punishment

I could write volumes on why it is never a good idea to use punishment or "correction" to train a dog. In fact I have. Shock collars make me very upset We better end this conversation right now.

We wouldn't be in this mess if the average obamadrone was as smart as that dog...
