Reinforcement Should Come in Different Forms

Although it is easiest to use treats to initially train your dog, it is most useful to soon introduce toys, verbal praise, and life rewards as additional reinforcement for desired behaviors. Examples of life rewards are going for a ride in the car, being let outside, or being given permission to say hello to a friend. Varying your types of reinforcement will help to keep your dog motivated to learn.
