    Thanks. I will try that training method once I get Milo to want to eat again! =p Just to clarify, for the training process, the "treasure" doesn't always have to be the same right? Since Milo's not driven by a bowl of food anymore or a toy, I was thinking of chicken drumstick but I don't think I can give that to him every day.

    I don't think it's a hand feeding thing since I tried hand feeding him the Advance kibble as a treat during training and he would just not open his mouth at all! So yes, I will take on your advice and buy a small packet of another brand.

    Milo can have a chicken drumstick each day, as long as a) you're happy to buy them and b) he likes them enough to value them (like he does not seem to value his kibble!!!!). I'd check with Steve Courtney (Mr K9Pro himself either by posting in his subforum here or via his website K9 Pro The K9 Professionals; Dog Training and Behaviour Site) as he 'invented' TOT but in my understanding it is best to begin and stay with one thing til the dog 'gets it'... It just has to be something the dog wants or you miss the 'temptation' part.

    Just a little heads up - Milo is eating well again =)

    He eats most of his kibble be it only kibble or mixed in with other goodies. The triangle of temptation was a success (though I slacked off after the 3rd day and didn't use the leash... but by then he didn't go rushing for the food and kept looking at me) and he now waits for permission to eat. Though during the training, he kept stealing food from the house shrine!

    I have also started to give him Pedigree Dentastix. He's only had one so far but he was able to finish that real quick!
