Dr. Ian Dunbar and Dog Star Daily - Phasing out Food Rewards

Just another great site and Ph.D dog behaviorist extraodinaire to share with the readers: Dr. Ian Dunbar and his web site

Chock full of great information - here is an article that talks about phasing out food rewards.

Excerpt: Quantum Leaps
You will make four quantum leaps in training as you phase out hand-held training lures, and eventually all training rewards. Phasing out food lures is a simple matter — just put them in your pocket to be used as rewards for above-average responses. Phasing out food rewards is similarly simple — just empty your pockets of food and use something else as a reward.
