Training Without Treats?

i want to teach my dog things like drop it and leave it but he really doesnt care about treats at all, never known a dog like him just isnt bothered by food
his favourite toy is a ball on string, but im not sure how to incorporate that into his training

do i give it to him or throw it for him, how long does he get it for? these sort of things i cant find out about

I don't train with treats anyway. It might take a little longer to learn training but I want them to do the commands to please me not to get a treat.
Um, that's really not how using treats to train works, and no, you don't need to have treats with you forever for the dog to comply with commands either. :)
Diane, the OP did mention "drop it" and "leave it" in the first post.
