One of the things I teach is how food is power for a dog. Some dogs don't have a need to use food so they won't it's still a definable staple in their life none the less. Some dogs manipulate their lives around it in a way that most don't see. Then act entitled or act out in other areas of their day. Part of that can be rooted in their definition of themselves where food is concerned. Again, it is usually under the radar that most don't see although the dogs do and that is really all that matters. A simple, yet powerful tool we use is food how the dog defines it, training with it, shifting out of training with it thus working their minds. Without food we see once the dog totally understands what's being asked if they will follow. This is where true balance lingers for moments that feel like minutes. Does the dog follow through with what it knows or does the dog have an opinion about what's being asked. Dogs are so smart and when you line up and start to build conversations in training whatever is going on underneath shows up. Then it can be shifted into balance. Food is a GREAT motivator yet, it can dumb a dog down as well. Food used appropriately can bring out the BEST and EVERYTHING your dog has been hiding and needing to evolve into.
