Q. What treats to do you use when you train?
Hello, You've probably been asked this a million times but, what treats to do you use when you train? Thanks.

A. I use whatever the dog finds valuable. That is something you ask the dog :)

I use a variety of different types of treat, based on each dog's motivation for that item.

I'll link my favorites below (I also use string cheese for dogs that like it, I cut it into small pieces)

The Power of Training Dogs w/ Markers
The Power of Training Dogs w/ Markers
$40.00
3 Hours, 33 Minutes
Marker training (also called clicker training or operant conditioning) is one of the most profound systems of dog training that I have seen in my 50 years of owning, breeding and training working dogs. In its most basic form, it's a method of communication that is very clear for dogs to understand. Dogs learn the marker language quickly and when they do they thrive in training. The marker system produces dogs that love to train.
