But Elegy, you're not lying to her. I am not telling you to change what you are doing. If it works and your dog is happy don't change it. I will tell you that the more you can offer your dog after you click, the more interesting and fun training becomes. The reason for this is you have so much more to offer. Here is an example. It's like you getting paid the same amount very Friday. After a while it would get boring, but if every once in a while you got a little more one week would that make it interesting? The same thing applies to your dog. I like using tactile rewards, treats, toys, and every once in a while try nothing. I always use Agility Trainers as a great example. They click and rarely feed, and look at the attitude.
