Training a pet can be really hard. And yet, some furry friends will pick up totally random "tricks," completely by accident.
A recent Reddit thread asked people to name the bizarre things they've accidentally conditioned their pets to do. It's crazy, the things dogs pick up when all we want them to do is sit!
My niece loves to FaceTime my mom to talk to her dog. When the dog was a puppy, my mom used to pull her onto her lap when she would get FaceTimed.
Now the dog is 80 lbs and will jump in your lap if your phone or tablet starts making the default FaceTime ring. - bb_or_not_bb
I conditioned my cats to use the scratching post with treats and pets and lots of "good boy, good boy."
For the last 7 years, whenever I have to tell my one cat to stop chewing on something or anything like that, he goes to that post and scratches furiously looking at me like "but I'm a good boy!!" - nocoolnamesleft10
