How the New York Times's new Edatrix operates:
She planned to apply in the newsroom some of the "positive training" that she lavished on Scout. She and her husband, she writes in her book, used "encouragement, not punishment" to train Scout, rewarding her for good behavior with a piece of kibble. "In one's relationship with dogs and with a newsroom, a generous amount of praise and encouragement goes much better than criticism," she says.
So the reporters will get kibble? In one housebreaking episode, the beast would be rewarded for going to the newspaper (NYT is best) in the bathroom. He would do his business wherever he liked, then run to the newspaper when his indiscretion was discovered.
