Here’s one example: A skateboard rolling down the sidewalk startles your dog and she yelps. You scream, run over to the dog and pick her up. You then carry her into the house and spend the rest of the afternoon soothing and caressing her on the sofa.

Be aware of your dog’s average obedience level, and only follow “good” with a food reward for better-than-average responses. The dog will soon notice that only her best obedience gets rewarded. Never fall below a 25-percent reward rate (rewarding the top 25 percent of the dog’s responses). If you stick to the No Free Lunch policy and always give food rewards at least 25 percent of the time, you will be amazed at how willing your dog is to be obedient. 52 How Your Dog Learns If you combine this with proper corrections for disobedience and go back a level following any disobedience, you will have a dog who is reliable and happily obedient for the rest of her life.
