Likes her food as a treat?

Hey everyone.......i was just curious......
I'm training my 4 and a 1/2 month old MinPinXMinDaschund mix and she doesnt like to just sit and eat her food also when i use her regular dog food as a treat...as in holding one piece of kibble saying sit and then giving it to he....she readily eats it. What im wondering is this bad, unusual, unhealthy, bad for training etc etc. So looking for some feedback.

Wow a insightful and useful post.......and from a moderator nonetheless. Thank you i appreciate that very much. Also what about the fact that she doesn't like to sit and eat and she also doesnt have much of an appetite unless she has gone a long time without eating?
she is on a schedule, breakfast between 6:30 and 7:00(hard to get up in the morning sometimes lol) 11:30 lunch and 4:30 dinner(unfortunately im often a bit late with that one) I cant remember if she did it from the beginning but it has occurred for some time now. And as far as I know she appears to be about right in terms of fit. And regardless I appreciate the feedback. Also I read the forums more than I post and your posts are often quite intelligently written and informative so.
Thanks for the advice Sprinkles. I sometimes leave her food too long expecting her to eat it. Not too long that it starts to become free-feeding mind you but anyways. Unfortunately im still in school and dont have the luxury(or the pleasure) of taking Lola for an early morning walk. Having to get ready for school is such a pain! I might try changing her dinner time to a bit later so that i can walk her right before her meal though.
It seems that we are very much alike Sprinkles, though i have a couple more years before graduation. If you dont mind my asking what breed and how old is Waldo. just curious for comparison.
