This blog is a tribute to Belle, and all the dogs who have come before and after. They are my friends, my companions, my teachers and my students. They bring me both joy and heartache, laughter and tears. There is nothing as sweet as the smell of puppy breathe, and nothing as sad as the final goodbye.

Training with treats

Training tip: 

It is important to eventually eliminate the treat as a visible lure. Do, however, continue to use them on an  intermittent schedule. Your dog works harder not knowing when he will be treated and you don't develop a dependency on treats as a training tool.
