smoked salmon is highly valued in my house. All I have to do is open the ziplock and everyone stops what they are doing and starts sniffing the air. I save it for those occasions when I really want full attention.
I am a big fan of positive reinforcement. I suppose though there may be dogs, behaviors, or situations that require a different approach. I have only had three Dobermans, but I found all of them to be highly sensitive to correction and not in a good way. The "make mom happy" method seems to work for us.
