Well, using cheese as a treat actually came from a thread by Slamdunc!

I was reading about how he was training his K9 dog to get into the car, and he was using cheese as a lure.
At the time, I was searching for a very attractive treat (Rumo had a hard time paying attention to me in obedience class with 5 other dogs nearby) so I tried bringing little pieces of cheese to class to "up" his attention to me.
He does love the stuff!
But if training, we only go through half a slice or a slice, cut into little pieces..not huge amounts. :-)

It's been over a year now, and he has really smoothed out all of his behavior kinks. This morning we went for a walk with a neighbor and her basset hound...our walks are peaceful and quiet now.
The basset hound was very funny.
We passed a person walking to the bus stop, who stopped to say Hi, and the basset hound carefully sniffed both of her shoes. And I thought Rumo had a nose obsession!!

My understanding of the danger of giving a dog too much cheese is constipation, not loose stools. My brother lost a Doberman that way, it stole and ate a 2 lb block of cheese when he was defrosting a fridge.

I'm not sure if that applies equally to processed cheese foods.

The loose stools/diarrhea are seen in dogs who have severe intolerance or allergic to milk in the cheese which is not common. Constipation that is interesting like kids who have to much milk. Moderation is key. Sorry to hear about your brothers dog that’s awful.
