food works well for dogs that can't control their energy on a tug or a ball...and it works well in the teaching or luring stages. But some dogs are flat with food, or not real food driven so need more than a treat as a reward.
Tug, ball, whatever gets the dog excited. My dog needs his toys changed up often, I may carry two different ones in my vest in one session. I know many say to make the dog work for *the handler* and praise is a decent enough reward. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.

Trainers should look at the individual dog and not try to make their methods fit all dogs.

Without seeing the dog and them in training it's hard to say what will work and what won't? Some dogs are just never going to give you that 100% focus. Sometimes we have to except that.. It's hard, I know!!

Where do you train? I'm thinking she needs a new trainer

I don't know that the deprivation is right or not, but looking at the video, I would be thinking a little more of giving him a reason to want to look up. At the very least, the food being given to him above his head instead of the release and move. In his case, that's just maybe a little too much "Look up because I'm telling you to"

I do not agree with the trainer at all!
She started out with correcting him from the beginning. Popping the collar to get him to focus is flattening him.
I would have him drive into her hand more (ups or forwards) for some treats before she starts training, and do some circles or turns(the dog) to increase his drive state.
Do this as she brings him onto the field right out of the crate.
She also seems concerned about the other team on the field and her dog is reading her emotions.
She should look at some of Bridget Carlsens video clips.

When watching the video a couple of things jump out at me first i usually like to reward the dog in correct position instead of jump out of it to reward. i also could hear her no when he did wrong but not her yes or other marks for when he did good. Also I do not understand why her trainer has her walking such short steps along a wall it doe snot seem to be teaching the dog heel very well. As far as using the leash yes you can use slight small pops to build if done right but she does not look like she has been taught how to do that. I also agree with jane in that she does stop to watch the other team so her dog does to. Might be good to get your friend to focus on her dog and train him.
