Luring is a technique in which the handler entices a dog to follow and pursue a primary motivator for position and movement.

Luring is a technique that requires handler leadership. You must lead when luring. If you try to help or follow the dog while luring it just doesn’t work. The dog follows the lure because it is being taken away. If she doesn’t follow it, the primary motivator goes away. Carpe Cookie!

Luring is most often done with food, but can also be done with toys that have value.
