A blog about dog training and dog breeding…and other sundry matters

Use treats for training new behaviors, and toys/games for motivation after the behavior is learned.  Using treats in the initial stages of teaching a behavior allows for the learning process to progress without breaking the dog’s concentration, and it is faster.  Bring out the toy when you’re training for latency or to provide further motivation.
