A new study (Emory University in Atlanta) studied dogs’ brain scans to see how they react to their owners praising them by giving them love in the form of belly rubs or praise versus giving them a treat. Interesting findings….turns out, almost EVERY dog preferred LOVE over treats.

Researchers suggest incorporating more love and praise into your training as it may be more effective than rewarding them with treats
