I train with food, and my dog is anything but fat. Mind you most of the pieces she gets are nothing more than a teeny taste. Personally for Agility training I'd much rather lure her across a new piece of equipment with a treat than forcefully drag her across it. Now some things she doesn't need a reward, tearing through a tunnel is reward enough, but things that are scary like to her the teeter, then I use the best tasting thing I can find that she likes. As she gets better and less nervous, then I reduce the number of treats.
