I think it's pretty easy to train behaviors that you didn't know you were training.
I had the brilliant idea of offering a treat in exchange for anything my IG puppy stole (socks, kid's action figures, etc). It worked great. No chasing her around the house trying to get the stolen goods back.
One day, when she was an adult, she kept barking at me, obviously trying to get a treat out of me. I told her to knock it off, and go away. She disappeared into the bedroom, came out with one of my sandals, and did a pretty little sit right in front of me. NOW, I had to give her a treat. Clever clever girl!
So, yeah, I absolutely think he's figured out a way to get a treat out of you, lol!
