Another factor that will influence the strength of conditioning is the correlation between the bait you’re using ans the resource removal (or approach and touch). If the exercises sometimes occur without the bait or the bait sometimes is given without the exercise, the correlation will be lower and the strength of your CER compromised.  For this reason, son’t be tempted to do exercises with low value threats for convenience on occasion and don’t use the high value bait you’re using in D&C exercises for other training endeavors or as general dog treats.  Reserve it for its sole purpose.
