As far as the treats go…..I would find out exactly how much she is feeding and when. I usually have clients pull way back on food during the beginning or treat training, or even have every calorie come out of the treat bag. Whatever the feeding plan is, it should be daily, if the dog controls their food or is entitled to food, it can be very difficult to use it to motivate them. Does the dog finish her meals? Does she eat in one approach, or take a couple trips? Does she have chews and food items left out? Things like this are important to iron out, and it can take time. Controlling food is a beautiful and easy way to practice dominance.
