Some dog owners are unsure about whether to use dog treats when training a dog to learn a new trick or behavior. But treats simply help you to get the behavior you want from your dog, and then let your dog know that it performed the behavior correctly.
Dogs tend to learn faster and have more fun when they get rewarded for good behavior.
One way dog treats are used is to lure dogs to do the behavior you want. For example, when you train a dog to sit, you can start by luring your dog with a treat. Hold a treat close to your dog’s nose, and slowly move the treat back over its head. Most dogs will stick their noses up to follow the dog treat, and as their nose goes up, their bottoms go down. Luring works well on a number of other behaviors, including down and rollover.
