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.

Kamal Fernandez, from East London Dog Training, is a trainer in competitive Obedience and has a solution. In this video, he shows how to train the dog to understand that they will still be rewarded even if a reward is not on the owner and not given straight away.
