Rewards for your dog training sessions

For the most part many dogs love to get rewarded, I mean wouldn’t you? This is what we use to train them; giving them a reward every time they do what you want is vital in this kind of training.
The first and best kind of reward is food, or treats, they are easy to carry around as many of them are small and you can buy them at any place that sells dog food. Plus almost all dogs can’t resist these, so when you start your training go buy a pack of dog treats.
Most dogs like the treat with some kind of meat and cheese in them, now be flexible and if your dog doesn’t like some treats try other ones. Just because it said your dog will love it on the bag doesn’t mean your dog will always like it.
Another kind of reward is a non edible one, something such as patting it or scratching your dogs belly are examples of what I mean. Some dogs like this and if your dog does not like the treats that you give them then this is something else that you can consider.
Showing that you love your dog is something to consider as your dog will love you only as much as you love it. Also by doing this you two will gain some trust between each other resulting in a better overall experience when you train your dog.
