We don't have a specific brand, but make sure you're getting soft bites, not biscuits. With training, you want them to get the reward quickly and get back to training, not sit chewing on a biscuit to forget you. I get the meat sticks (they look like little jerkies) and break them into tiny pieces. Try a few different kinds and see what he likes best.

Also, a few people including my vet have recommended using meals as training time. Scout LOVES dinner time and we have gotten a lot of good training in with hand-feeding her dinner. And it's great bonding. David Winners, I think, recommends it too. One of the best training recommendations I have gotten.

Whatever you do, have fun!
