Re: Rewarding Using Variation
Apollo and Zeus are quite different when it comes to rewards. Apollo has a good bit of drive for being a German Showline, for food and toys. He will accept almost anything as a reward, whether it's food, toys, or affection. His favorite reward would have to be a tie between food, (any kind, the boys loves everything!) and his squeaky toys! He loves to squeak them.
Zeus has drive as well, but since he's a bit hard headed, you have to have a treat or a toy, affection isn't good enough for him. He loves food as well, but not as much as Apollo. Zeus' favorite reward hands down though is his tug toy. After doing a command well, I will let him tug on it, praise him, and I will tell him to "Drop It" and we do another command.
