Another great alternative (not great for giving you a break, though!) is to hide one bit of food and direct the dog with 'yes' and 'no' - like 'hot' and 'cold' when playing with a human. It reinforces 'no' as a direction rather than a 'punishment' - stop doing that, and do the things I say yes to and you'll get something good!
