Do you always use food during training? What if my dog has allergies?

While food is the most common way to reinforce positive behavior, not all dogs are sufficiently motivated by food to use it in training. Likewise, other dogs are so stimulated by food that it becomes a training distraction. Every dog has a unique list of motivational drives. Our job is to find those drives and use them as reinforcement to train our clients’ dogs. If your dog is food motivated but has food allergies, we can find treats that are suitable, and use these exclusively with your dog.
