* A running gag in ''NightAtTheMuseum'' is that the T-rex skeleton can be distracted by throwing one of its ribs for it. [[AllAnimalsAreDogs It acts exactly like a dog anyway.]]

Unlikely to work in real life. Professionally trained Attack, Bomb/Drug-sniffer, and Guard Dogs will ignore such distractions and stay on target. Needless to say, [[TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs don't expect to successfully use this trope]]. That said, {{Series/Mythbusters}} tested this one early in the show's lifespan and found out that your standard-issue guard Doberman can be distracted by raw meat for a little while, and they'll get completely obsessed over [[{{Squick}} the urine of a female dog in heat]] (Guard dogs are rarely, if ever, fixed since it makes them more docile) to the point where Tory was able to successfully complete his objective. But with even stricter training it's possible to get them to ignore these as well.
