Rewarding your dog does not mean you have to stuff him with candy,
not even when it is especially made for dogs. You'll get nowhere that
way, he will only respond to candy and food. It is better to handle it d
ifferently. Reveal you are pleased because of his behaviour by praising
him. A treble voice and stroke wonders.
The leader of a pack of hounds is called the Alpha. Its up to him/her to
decide what to do or not and when. The pack hunts under his/her command.
When a dog does not obey the Alpha he will be punished in a fast and
effective way even causing death sometimes. A pack can only survive
this way. In a home situation you take over the lead and take a firm line.
You have to act like an Alpha (off course not until it bleeds).
Through experience you will understand more of your dogs behaviour.
After all we are good pupils at the same time our dogs are brilliant masters.
