IMO, different situations require different rewards. When initially training a behavior, I use a reward that is pleasurable for the dog, but does not put the dog into such a high state of drive that he cannot focus on the behavior. With most of the dogs I train, this is food, and it sounds like this is the case with your dog.
After the behavior is learned, the lure is faded and the dog is regularly complying to the verbal command, I will up the reward, and the drive, by using the tug.

Thanks for the insight. No problem on the late reply.
I have noticed he responds better to the tug at times or seems to pay better attention when teaching or practicing commands with the tug. It's his favorite past time. Do you think training him with a tug is a better reward for desired behaviour? He does lose interest in treats fairly quickly. Sorry to drag this out. Last question....promise.

|David Taggart||I see propagating to train your dog in protection as a play with a fire. A young girl, met at school and escorted by PP dog back home? A dream of any parent! Where are responsible adults if anything goes wrong? People in general wouls never realise what it takes to train a well behaved PP dog. Dog is a dangerous weapon, available without any licence. Agression creates more agression, people cannot be trusted, especially young men who are looking for puppies of "good blood" right here in this Forum.|

What does a demo video for a company selling executive protection dogs have to do with a YouYube channel devoted to training instruction?
There is no training going on in the video at all.

David... This is nice PP training too:
Protection Trained Dogs on Video ? They?re More Than Trained Guard Dogs | Protection Dogs Plus
But, people don't want to train dogs just to bark at some stupid drunkard at night, they want them to behave like in the army or police.

Sorry for the late reply. I lost the thread into the abyss of current topics.

Big Stonnie fan here. I have had a couple of email conversations with him back when we were exploring what breed we were going to go with.
I've enjoyed his videos and his sense of humor.
