treats vs kibble vs raw
I am in the process of purchasing some training videos and books and I notice in all the videos I see, treats are used very frequently as reinforcement. What does everyone use as a training reinforcement. I heard some people use kibble because I can't imagine that treats are good to feed in high volume while training a puppy...
Also as an added note I believe I want to start feeding raw once I get her home as I believe the breeder feeds raw as well. I heard that kibble is not a good motivator for a pet that is being fed raw. Any thoughts on this?
