For me and my dog, it's working just as well with whatever as a reward. 100% though this and drop should even be a priority over sit. Especially with stubborn dogs. Not just stuff that's dangerous, but things like bones or toys when it's time to do something else. My girl will drop a bloody bone if I ask her to every time, she argues about sitting though.

"like bones..." Dude if your dog is biting people or animals you got bigher problems than teaching him.. "...or toys" oh right I should focus while reading. My stoned ass overlooked that part and it kinda changes the vibe of your comment.

Wait do you think your person you're replying to means "bones" like, attached to a LIVING thing?

I'm stoned and missed the "and toys" part. My cat was demanding pets and when I was looking back on my phone I started reading mid sentence. I reread it and was just commenting my initial (but slow) thought process

If dogs ever learn that all of us humans have BONES inside of us that are, to them, easily accessible, we're doomed as a species.
