1. Exercise. Go chase a squirrel.
2. Do nothing. Not every squirrel is worth chasing.
3. Be fun. Zippy is fun. Even sitting around doing nothing. If you can’t be fun, try being pleasant.
4. Make it easy to say yes. Zippy knocks her food bowl around the kitchen when she’s hungry. I know exactly what she wants.
5. Celebrate what you love. Zippy enjoys unwrapping presents and loves gift bags. She spends zero time bashing people or dogs who, for whatever reason, don’t like gifts.
