a favorite toy? I have a few special toys that we only use for training (the are put away) and his reward becomes a few seconds playing tug etc. He seems to LOVE to train when he knows I pull out the special toys. Also make sure he is HUNGRY when you are using food. If I work with Jake it's before a meal. I learned that the hard way. (sigh)
If your dog is hungry they will show an interest. Also what are you using for training treats? Cheese, hotdogs, Nb rolls, cheerios? Keep the food reward high value, not something he gets all the time.
