Through service and education of the people our therapy teams encounter, we strive to demonstrate the valuable connection of dogs to the existence of mankind. Today we are going to talk about how using food rewards can effect motivation while training your dog. If your are interested. I be doing a video podcast of this work and streaming it on the all-natural treat on web site and on iTunes. What is nice about the video podcast is you can actually us working with dogs to explain the various concepts. Outside of normal feeding there are two applications for using food with dogs: Every dog, no matter the age, the breed, the sex or size responds to two basic motivators: When food and treats are used properly, they become a powerful tool for motivating your dog during training or occupying your dog's time when you are gone and he is alone. Most people do not give a lot of thought to the kind of treats they use. They underestimate how importance it is to vary the treats used different applications. I must confess that I fell into that category for years. I thought cutting up hot dogs was all that was needed for obedience training or teaching dog to track. I started taking dog training seriously back the dark ages of the 1960's when people like William Koehler and Strickland were considered experts the field. Using food to train dogs back then was almost unheard of. The argument was If you train with food, at some point you're going to have to stop and then what you do? Well dog training is light years ahead of where it was back then and this question has been answer. Koehler and Strickland have become the model-T ford of the training industry. They got you around but it wasn't pretty. We have since learned that when it's done properly, motivating a dog with food creates a dog that enjoys training, wants to take part the learning process, and becomes a problem solver. Using treats your work also improves the bond between dog and handler. When a handler embraces the fact that he use food his training, he must then learn how to do this correctly. Marker training is hands down the best way. I have marker articles DVDs that show how to do this. Marker work opened our eyes to the fact that different dog treats can produce different results our training. I am going to talk about that later. just as importantly as learning how and when to use food your dog training is the question of what kind of food or treats to use. Back the early 1980's DVD's showed how to cut up small pieces of hot dogs and use them as treats during obedience training. There is nothing wrong with doing that today. But the past 25 years we have seen a huge improvement the number and quality of dog treats that are available. Feeding dogs all-natural diet has become popular because people like myself recognized the fact that most commercial dog food are crap. This was dramatically demonstrated with the recent pet food recall that killed thousands of animals. fact, over the last 6 or 7 years, the popularity of feeding all-natural diet has fueled the explosion of all-natural dog treats. Fifteen years ago the multi-colored grocery store dog biscuits that are still sold Wal-Mart, K-Mart or the pet food warehouses were pretty much the only option people had if they wanted a dry food treat. Most dogs that have been fed a raw all-natural diet justifiably not eat them. God only knows what they are really made from. The good news is today we have a number of different options of all-natural dog treats. These options are needed for a number of reasons: All treats a different motivational value to your dog. It's your job to constantly think about your dog's reaction when you use a specific food treat. Learn to read your dog's reaction to them. Some treats
