Guy is not pushy about food in general. Getting him to follow a lure was a challenge, he simply did not instinctively follow food like my previous pups. He has improved, but I know he will never be super driven about obtaining food like some dogs are.
What I found helped was marking and reinforcing the smallest effort, just him stretching toward my hand, then touching it with his nose, then taking one step, then two, ect... I also gently pushed back toward him with my hand to engage some opposition reflex as he took the food. I worked on just getting him to follow a lure and not teaching any actual skills for a while. I also made sure to use a high value food item and trained when I knew he would be hungry.
The Power of Training Dog's With Food by Micheal Ellis is a good video to watch to learn more about ow to properly use food when training.
If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
