Dog training: reducing reliance on rewards
Rewards, whether they be food or toys or whatever appeals to your dog, are a great motivator. However, if we want to reward with, say, food, and gave a food reward for everything the dog gets right in a training session, we may end up with a very chunky dog. In addition, in a sport like competitive obedience, the handler can't take rewards into the ring.
