How to distract a food motivated dog at the vet

Our chocolate lab can not hold still at the vet. He doesn’t mind the shots but he really wants to explore the smells and play with everyone that comes in the room.

During our most recent visit, they showed us a great trick for distracting him and holding him still. They smeared peanut butter on the “wall”, a folded down table. He happily licked up all the peanut butter, ignoring both the shots and the other animal smells.

    You can also do this trick if a dog doesn’t like baths, just smear some peanut butter on the wall like you saw in the video and voila! He will finally sit still so that you can wash him.
