CalamityJess Posted September 23, 2014 Report Share Posted September 23, 2014 Good news is, Brody is fully on Blue Wilderness, and doing GREAT. No more gross poops. Nice normal healthy ones. Which means, I can safely use pieces of kibble for training. Nothing heavy. Mostly manners. More good news. He is certainly food motivated. The bad news? He's TOO food motivated, as in he is obsessed with food. For example, I ask for a sit, he sits, I give him a bite. He then completely loses his mind and starts sniffing frantically for more. Nothing I do, or say snaps him out of it. I got him a treat ball, he got so obsessed with the one piece of kibble he managed to get out, that he could care less HOW he got it out he just wants desperately to know where it went and goes sniffing round the living room like a dog posessed. How on earth do I keep him food motivated, but not to the point he obsesses over it? I want to get to where he can be motivated by food, but also without. Where I can alternate rewards.
