As needing food to train a dog, that's not always the case. It depends on the dog. Most dogs unlike cats have an innate desire to please their master. A good trainer will capitalize on that. Not to say treats don't help, but they should never be a dog's sole motivation for a desired behavior.
I'm not quite sure about all dogs being obsessed with food. I have had 11 dogs (mostly large mixes, one chihuahua and 2 poms) and only two of them have been food obsessed (border collie-husky mix and my chihuahua). With all the rest I would put out a reasonable amount of food for the day and they ate it when they were hungry. They never begged. But the other 2 begged, scavenged and stole as well as scarfed down their meal in seconds. Personally, I feel it may have something to do with being bored. But I'm no expert.
