Food is the great motivator. Ask any successful animal trainer how they get the animals to do the spectacular things we see on the movie screen, everyone will tell you - FOOD! My hubby left the pasture gate open when he plowed, the horses were down the road, I got in the car, shook a bucket of oats & they trotted home after the car. I got the conditioned response I wanted, they come when I call as I conditioned them with food & treats, they come now when I don't have it because they expect it and it's just 2nd nature now.
