What is "Luring"

Luring is using food or another reinforcer and presenting it in such a way that the puppy follows the food into the action or position you are trying to reinforce.

Luring is a useful FIRST STEP in training with food or or other rewards. It is very helpful in showing the puppy what you want him to do. However, UNTIL YOU MOVE MOVE FROM LURING TO REWARDING the puppy will remain dependent on the presence of the food. 

An Example of Luring:

Hold a treat in front of a hungry puppy. When the puppy tries to eat or grab the treat move your hand so that the puppy follows the treat and walks on top of a little pallet. When the puppy has all four feet on the pallet give the puppy the treat.
