One concern dog owners commonly express about positive reinforcement training is that their dogs will only obey for food treats. Truth is, the concern is valid (and a possibility) if food is the primary reward for obedience and positive reinforcement training doesn't progress towards its proper end - weaning the dog from food rewards.
"My dog will only obey me if I have a treat in my hand!" It's a complaint I occasionally hear from clients in Denver, Colorado, who used do-it-yourself books on positive reinforcement to train their dogs.
