Dogs are driven by a expense-vs-reward mentality. Is a reward for their behavior greater than the risk involved? Take for instance FOOD, dogs decided long ago that partnering with humans gave them shelter, food and companionship where they didn’t have to expend energy to gain this security. In return they provided guardianship, friendship as well as a loving and loyal companion.

We discovered we could shape a dogs behavior by rewarding with food to get them to repeat a valuable behavior and over time the partnership stuck.

There are two other factors, love and respect. The tender treatment we give dogs shows in return their love and respect for us. Food cues begin the process of respect but our love for them keeps them present. As we continue to show love for them, they show their loyalty and devotion back to us. Additionally, love gives dogs the desire to perform and stay even when training isn’t present.
