My dogs both have high prey drive and are motivated by toys, balls and tugs. They will work for food, but they are definately more enthusiastic with toys and more responsive. They lose interest after a while with treats, whereas a ball or tug never ceases to get an animated response from them.

That is funny you say that. My great dane is also that way. he will work for his stuffed turttle over treats anyday. lol
