Perhaps tomorrow: right now, Mike has to fail to treat Farley properly.
Panel 1: We start off with Mike pushing down on Farley's rump and saying "Sit, Farley, sit, Farley, sit, Farley, SIT!!"
Panel 2: As he continues to do so, we see that Farley doesn't like this at all.
Panel 3: He thus gives Mike a bit of a shock by barking at him.
Panel 4: As Farley saunters off to where people aren't yelling at him and pushing down on his rump, Mike sits and stares.
Summary: This might well be the start of their failed attempt to train Farley. What I took away from that arc in the original version was that the dog was a willing student whose training was subverted by the idiots that owned him.
