Training is a repetitive process that rewarding the trainee—in this case, your pets—needs to be positively reinforced…by treats. Pets tend to remember their training well if there are treats waiting for them.

2 For reward

When your pets do good in your eye, reward them with a treat instantly. Aside from reinforcing positive behavior, pets will file that rewarding experience and may repeat that behavior in the future. Reward them again if it happens.
