You *can* use treats alone and it is effective. But, you can combine praise and kind words with treats, and it works as well.

I use treats all the time to teach my golden all kinds of tricks. He's super food oriented so it really helps! I took some training classes with him as well and the instructor kept saying ''We work for money, dogs work for food'' :-)

Treats are definitely great tool for pet's training, especially for new ones to guide right direction or things to do and reward if he performs good! But too much or relying only on the treats to let pet behave sometimes is not a good idea, your supervision and guide on training is still the key for good result.

I agree that treats help to train, as long as you don't give the dog a treat every other second... or else they just expect it without having to do anything. Use treats sparingly and effectively and then it will work.

I probably won't be very popular with this post but here goes anyway...
We do give our dog treats, but for no particular reason.
We have never used treats for training. It just reminds me of bribing, like some do with their kids: "I'll get you an ice cream if you'll stop misbehaving"
I know it works well for others, just not my cup of tea.
We have always used "praise" as her reward for doing well, and she DOES love the praising.......I think more than any treat!
