Tips on Treats

 Have the food treat in an easily accessible location so that it can be delivered to the dog within three seconds and while the desired behavior is still occurring.  I use a cotton waist apron, available from most hardware stores and online for under ten dollars. A treat pouch or bag is better than a pocket, but it can take some time to get used to accessing the treat quickly. After some training for both you and the dog, you can transition to a pocket in your clothes, but for most of us, getting into the pocket for the treat and then delivering it to the dog in three seconds is still a challenge.  Remember, timing is everything!
