Mom Forces Dog to Wear All the Items He’s Stolen from the Baby

When you’re a parent (or a pet parent), sometimes you’ve got to get creative with your discipline strategy in order to make your kids (or your pets) listen to you and do what you ask. The things you think will work don’t always work, but if you keep trying different things, you’re bound to find something that hits the nail on the head and encourages obedience. We hope.

This mom has come up with a very interesting strategy to discourage her dog from stealing her baby’s things. Every time the dog steals something he’s not supposed to have, she shames him by making him wear the item and takes video of him.

So far, the dog has stolen the baby’s bow, a burp cloth, a set of mom’s headphones, some socks, and a bottle, and that’s just what was captured on video. He’s been made to wear or carry around each of these items as a punishment, but still, every time his mom turns her back, he’s got something else in his little thief jaws.

Will he ever learn his lesson? Probably not. But in the meantime, it’s absolutely hilarious to watch. Check out the video below to get a good laugh:

Hopefully mom will come up with a new idea to promote sharing and discourage stealing by the time her baby is old enough to copy the dog’s behavior.

We can’t wait to see what this doggo decides to take next! A onesie? A bootie? A boppy pillow? Which item will finally make the pup say, “Nope, I’m not wearing that thing ever again. Time to stop stealing and turn my life around!”

Does your dog steal your baby’s stuff? We can’t tell if it’s jealousy or an affinity for baby’s scent or something in between. What’s your opinion?
