Dog training help?

What is the term used to describe the use of an enticing item to get a dog to act or move a certain way and slowly connect that action with a cue? And what is the term used when the trainer uses a word for a command and this word immediately precedes the desired behaviour?

    Those techniques are used in positive reinforcement training but don't necessarily have a specific name.

    It's similar to impulse control techniques.

    Bridge? Like Pavlov & him teaching a dog to salivate on command. He use meat powder as a bridge to get the dog to salivate & gradually took the meat powder away & the dog would salivate on command.

    There are several ways to describe what you're asking. First, training is repetitive by  positive reinforcement. Using bait, praise or an item special to the dog. Second is called LURING: To use a desired item (like a toy or treat) to get a dog to move in a certain way by enticing them to follow the item into a particular position or behavior. For example: When teaching a dog to sit, put a treat to your dog's nose, then lift the treat over the dogs head and his rear end will touch the ground.

    Most people refer to cues as commands. Example of cues are words that indicate that your dog should take action, such as SIT, STAY, COME, HEEL, etc. So in the most basic terms, a cue is a verbal or physical “signal” that tells the dog to perform some action. This “signal” or “cue” can be either verbal or physical.
