What does everyone think of using food as a reward in training? Many trainers use it but I've heard so many times that you shouldn't use food as a reward when training because that will teach your dog to listen to you only if he sees that he will get food. Rewarding a dog with just praise would be great but with some dogs food seems to be the only motivating factor. How do you folks handle training with a dog that only seems to be motivated with food?
