How important is the reward training

Post by JSAN_911 on Sat Aug 18, 2012 9:16 am

I know rewarding your love pet play a role but how important is it?
If you train a dog rewarding him as you train him is he or she always will be looking for that reward? does it become like a game they will be looking foward to? example if you reward him with treats or a toy?

It's a huge misconception that dogs trained with food/toy rewards will not "obey" when that reward isn't present. I personally believe in a balanced approach to training where any new behavior (regardless of the dogs age) is "shaped" by luring and rewarding. I believe reliability is achieved through physical correction any time the dog chooses to not comply (obviously not until the behavior is learned and generalized otherwise it wouldn't be fair).

Without luring and rewards, performances tend to be slow, lackluster and sloppy. Without some sort of "penalty" for non compliance you tend to sacrifice reliability. It's a balancing act imo.

Pets should be the by-product of a quality breeding program, not the basis of it.
