Your dog will probably work harder to  receive praise  from you than he will for treats.   Researchers at Emory University have actually studied this,  and I have found it to be true based on experience with my own dogs,  all of whom also very much enjoyed getting treats.

The interesting things is that most mammals have much the same reactions and motivations.
