Questions & Answers
Q: Can I give my dog people food?
A.No! but this needs an explanation. It is more about how and when you treat not what the treat consists of. For example, sometimes we use chicken or cheese tidbits as a high value positive reinforcement for "Come Here" training. This will not cause your dog to beg for food. If you feed your dog at the dinner table or while you are cooking a meal or give him a part of the sandwich you are eating, this will teach him to beg. If your dog walks reinforced begging or being demanding and pushy. Always have your dog work for treats and make it your idea, not his.
