This is my technique for giving my dog his medicine (pills) that truly is without fuss. Nothing wrong with the original, just felt inspired to post mine (and was actually taking a break from using photoshop when I browsed through instructables.com so it was already open.)
Step 1: Get your dog's attention.
What the subject is doing in this step is actually pretending to eat (enjoy) the medication. Just get your dog to become interested in whatever it is that you want him/her to ingest. This could be done at the dinner table even, as you are eating dinner/lunch/breakfast have something that your dog thinks came off of your plate.
