One of the most common questions I get from owners is when to incorporate food into training. I am all for adding positive reinforcements into balanced training. After all, balanced training is rewards and consequences working together to teach a dog what behaviors we want and what behaviors just aren’t okay.
Food can be a very powerful motivator in dog training, but it isn't always used properly, which can cause setbacks, or worse, a dog that only responds to training when there is food present. There are three main times when we reward our dogs, but owners can easily get these confused. These are luring, bribing, and rewarding.
