Let’s Talk About Treats | Z-dogs Blog
I usually use string cheese, or cubed cheese, oven bake chicken or beef and cut into pea sized portions. I use this for tracking bait, rewards. My dogs don't like crunchy treats, they are raw fed and for whatever reason, crunchy treats are not high value(though they hoover under the bird cages for the pellets or cereal I give the birds!)
For training, I use a ball on string or tug, it is much better for keeping the drive up. If I'm teaching something, then I use food.
