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.
Step 2: Give It to Your Dog.
In this step I recommend having your dog do a trick or such. Something like sit or shake. This action causes the dog to become excited and then you are able to reward him/her with her "treat" which in turn brings about happiness.
Step 3: Watch.
Here we see that your dog has indeed eaten the pill and is sort of happy about it. Not exactly sure how much joy the dog is having as I am not Caesar Milan but, the task is done. Thank you for viewing and it has been a pleasure sharing one of my most secret techniques with the instructable community. This is my first so sorry is my photos are not exactly posted correctly.
