Why will my dog never give paw unless I give it food?

I have been trying to get my dog to do tricks but she only does them for food how can she do it with out?

Do you give a command, like "shake", when you are teaching her?
Don't always give the treat ... so she doesn't know if she'll get a treat or not. But always give her praise and affection, when she gets it right.

Instead of giving your dog food to perform tricks, try rewarding your dog with belly rubs, pats on the head, or playing catch etc

treats make tricks easier when training dogs.
