I don't know, but we have this great game we play called the cheese game. I stand on one side of my yard and somebody else stands on the other side (mind you, we have a big yard). Gryff will start by me and have a piece of cheese, then when he is called, he will run like the wind to the other person for another piece, then back to me when I call him.

This was a game I learned at Obedience School (not my school, Gryff's). It was supposed to help teach recall. Unfortunately, this is the ONLY TIME he will always come when he is called. Bad dog. Anyway, the game is super fun and I play until he tuckers out, usually a slice or two of cheese.

You should give tiny, tiny little pieces for training. Almost too small for human fingers to pick up. (Okay, maybe not that small.) My trainer claims dogs are like kids. 10 tiny pieces are better than 1 big piece.

My gauge for too much cheese is if Jack clears the room with killer farts later.

TTFN,
Pam

Agree, just a small amount.
I have sliced cheese so thin it can not be seen. Just enough for him to enjoy but not too too much for his weight.
His favorite is gouda.

Every morning when I am making sandwiches for DH and myself, I give each dog 1/4 of a slice of yellow american. That's as much as mine get.

Kodi doesn't get any "treat" food except for working. So I don't monitor too carefully what he gets of what. He gets a variety of training treats, so it's never a huge amount of any one thing.

He gets eggs (often with cheese scrambled in) for breakfast if we are having them, and he will often share a piece of fruit with us. But even with the fruit, he must work for each piece.

Timmy has just discovered cheese, he is an obsessed little man! I can so relate to your game.

Well, you use what works for now. But eventually you want him to want to do agility just because the GAME is so much fun!
