    S: all dogs are to an extent, all living ones that is.

    Dinner time, breakfast or "snack" time mean nothing to her, even when i put the bowl down she does not care, she walks off and comes back to it when she feels, normally around ten minutes later, she also doesnt eat it in one go so i have had to resort to taking it away and giving her some more an hour later, its actually REALLY annoying me.
    S: sounds like she has you well trained lol. Feed her once a day in the TOT, if she hasn't eaten the food in 5 minutes, take it away until the next day.

    Breakfast time she does not do this as she has her pet mince in the morning and she LOVES her pet mince..
    S: then start by using it at breakfast time with mince, if she loves it it will add that reward pressure you need.

    Thanks Steve

    I guess I would be at the no tie out stage... I use the good and release markers...

    But given I want some "focus forward" ie for my dog to look where she's going on an agility course, I wait till she's looking at the food, tho she will check back at me from time to time which is good too, and I tell her "good" when she looks at the food, and "on special" to release her to eat it. I only use "on special" for food.

    PS when I started this system, she had to look at me to get a release. And she will now if I ask her to.

    S: I would place the food bowl down off to one side, have a non rewarding article out in front, dumbbell if you like.

    Have her look at the DB and release her to eat meal, have her retrieve the DB, release to eat meal etc.

    I've always done this with my dogs from day 1 - when their food is served to them they wait until I say "eat it" and I make the hand signal to eat. You can make sure your dog is concentrating on waiting for a prompt from you, by sometimes making the hand signal with no verbal command.

    This is a good article and I'd be interested to read more from you, K9Force.

    Mosh

    There is a tonne of stuff from Steve (formerly known as K9Force) - at K9 Pro The K9 Professionals; Online Dog Shop

    he's got a facebook page and a blog too. But mostly I like his training and behaviour articles - although they've all been moved around so I have a hard time finding them.
