Are treats the only way to reward and train my dog? Yes and no.
In training commands treats are critical to move our dogs into the correct position or physical action which is what commands really are – sit is a posture, come is an action. This is done by the process of luring where we hold a treat directly in front of their nose. Their bodies will “follow their nose” and if we understand their body mechanics we could create something as complicated as a dance routine for any dog. The only other option would be to literally try to physically manipulate and and move our dogs like pushing on their rump to sit but this is not active learning on the dogs part, cannot be used for many commands (like circles, pushups, stay) need to repeated and does not train hands signals, always critical to train along with verbal commands.***Specializing in effectively eliminating behavior problems in dogs, many reactive (fearful, aggressive) will not eat treats. What is the solution for these dogs (and owners) badly needing help? Total Harmony Dog Transformation® (click link to read more)
