Posting here instead of Working Dogs for traffic etc... I have a trainee Mantrailing dog. At the moment, his find reward is a tasty box of baked liver&heart (which he adores and doesn't get at any other time) - he gets this once he indicates correctly. Then once his harness is removed I have started giving him primula (the squeezy cheese stuff - he licks the end of the tube whilst I praise him). I'm looking for a 'new' reward - more interactive? I don't want to remove the liver/heart, but once the initial "OMG we found them!!!" is over, I would like to introduce something play-like... He is insanely food driven, but will play when in the right mindset - but play is always a tuggy game. Is there a way of combining tuggy and food? This sounds crazy (I don't even know how it would work!), but something like a bite tug that I could maybe smear squeezy cheese or peanut butter on to start with to start the habit? Looking for suggestions here - what we do at the moment works, I just feel like he's being short-changed! (possibly because we work with a lot of Mali-types who work for a game of tug and that interaction at the end?) Should I build up the reward? The cheese is a newish thing, and he really seems to appreciate it, but I would love to have the full on "Party Time!!!" end of search game... Thanks in advance.
