Food is a great reward but different prizes could be verbalized commendation and toys. Many shorter training sessions are much better than a long one. Training must not involve any degrading components or punishment. There should be no shouting, no smacking or hitting, no leash yanking on training chains or collars, and absolutely no electric shocking! Every training session must be pleasant and positive with praise for each job well done.
