You can say 'yes', but really you're just replacing one thing with another. Once the dog is getting the concept, you can start to phase out the food reward, but initially, you probably have to be close to him to reward quickly.

You might work on how he takes his treats ('nicely') as a separate exercise, so he's not getting pushy.
