Hi there, I've posted on the puppy page but not over here. Maggie is my first puppy that I have trained with food rewards and I think it is going pretty well. Her recall is good during the most distracted times. Still NOT perfect though. I am working on walking at the heel through the neighbourhood now taking her completely off her long lead that has been loose for months. So....my question. With food training. If I am still giving her a reward every 50 feet or so when she stays at my heel is that too much? Is there a point when you start backing off the reward or is this something that trainers just continue with there dogs? I can see the fruits of my labor especially that when we see someone out on a walk now, within a couple of seconds after a greeting from Maggie I can be talking to the person and she is sitting right in front of me looking at me When she first started doing this, I would give her kibbles ever few mins to keep her sitting and quiet. The Food reward can wait now the end of the conversation when we are ready to go and I "thank" maggie for her good behaviour and give her her treat. If its a long visit, I still treat half way through ANy thoughts or advise is greatly appreciated.
