I have been wondering how members of this forum get their chins back to the cage after playtime. My first boy, who was difficult but very smart just needed to be told 'bed' and in he went. In contrast, my current boy, who is most of the time a total darling, can only be lured in if, at top speed, he can bomb dive into his bath.

He is only allowed a couple of rolls, so thus far we have avoided dry ears but having a no-bath strategy woudl be most useful. Once, when he was on eye drops, I managed to trick him by replacing the dust with a folded scarf of the same hue but we all know that the number of times one can fool a chin runs on the lower single digits. Any other ways to get those smarty-pants back to the cage?
