Petra Ford's newest webinar, "NO COOKIES, NO DOG?"

This is a common dilemma.  Our dogs look great as long as we use food as a reward.  But as soon as we put the food away and step in into the ring, we have a completely different dog.  Lack of food often causes dogs to deflate and “stress down”.   Some dogs can push through, but it doesn’t always look pretty.

It’s a common misconception that dogs will “only give effort” if we have food.  That training with food doesn’t hold up.  That’s not true.  Dogs can be taught not only to work without food in the ring, but to do so with joy and enthusiasm.   The key is creating a confident dog that understands, no food does NOT mean they are wrong.
