Ok, i've been geting my foot in the door on a few jobs due to carrying around , and passing out a few of these>
Of all the things i've tried, specials, promo's, spamming with my web site, new co shirts, hats, etc. this seems to work best
Usually the owners dog comes out in front of him/her to 'inspect'
an arrival of another human, protection being their natural compulsion.
If said arrival is ok with the dog, s/he's in. Having that biscuit ready at the precise moment allows for the animal's questioning look back to their master "Gee, he's gotta biscuit, so he's gotta be okay"
Maybe it's coincidence, or maybe because most dogs are better people than people, but doggone
, it's been working!WOOF!
