Anyone have suggestions for a pup that doesn't seem to be food motivated? Hard to train if he losing interest quickly... any suggestions? I do use a clicker.
Have you tried:

string cheese
Liver (cooked and thin sliced)
chicken breast cooked with garlic, cooled then thin sliced
Laske Kronch fish treats
Yummy Chummy fish treats (Costco $9.99 for 2.5lb)
egg omelet, sliced or cubed
sardines (messy)

Make sure you have 2-3 levels of treats on you when training. Start with the lowest level for regular stuff and use the higher levels for rewarding difficult behaviors or excellent results.

Same with toys - make sure you have several but only use one at a time - ball, felt ring, braided fleece tug, riot sticks, frenzy ring (make your own).
