Idea Exchange: Treat dogs to eye drops

When administering eye drops to a dog, hold a treat above the dog's head, causing it to look up. With your other hand, apply the drops to the eyes. Once the drops are in, immediately lower the treat to reward the dog and give it positive reinforcement for accepting the eye drops.
