The kind made from milk. Mine love parmesan rinds. The stinkier the better.

Any kind of cheese is fine as far as I know.

My vet recommended String Cheese and I occasionally feed them Cheddar. It's so much safer then doggy treats that you have no clue where they came from.

Make them do trick for their treats..

I've always been told that cheese isn't good for a dog, as some are lactose intolerant and/or don't have the enzymes needed to break down cheese. Plus, dogs would not naturally eat dairy out in the wild (wolves, wild dogs, etc.). Not sure if cheese will just give them bad gas as they try to digest it, or if it causes other problems.

I know organic, plain, unflavored, unsweetened yogurt (dairy!) is usually recommended for it's active bacteria/probiotics when feeding a raw diet. So go figure! Ha.

If the dog is lactose intolerant, cheese and yogurt are both a bad idea. The intolerance can vary for each individual. Cheddar cheese has very low lactose levels, while other cheeses are higher.

Many trainers use cheese cubes for rewards. I have never personally see a dog react in a negative manner to cheese given in reasonable amounts.
