Default Soft, Chewy Puppy Treats??

7 and a half week old Kali--- We bought dehydrated sweet potato slices; however, they are almost like a chew toy that keeps her occupied. We want something that she can eat quickly for training purposes. We bought mini milk bones, but they are really hard and she is still eating hot water-soaked kibble.

Also, when should we start weening her off of softened kibble?

Thanks for any suggestions ya'll!!!!

I used dehydrated sweet potato treats for Veda when she was a younger pup. To avoid the chewy distraction I just cut the slices of sweet potatoes up into very small nibble-sized pieces and stuck them in a ziplock baggie. They worked well until she got older and started to realize there were yummier treats out there 😜

I cook liver in the microwave. One minute on each side and then use a paper towel to soak off the extra juice. I separate the package into separate snack baggies and freeze them all. Then I just have to grab one snack baggie and go.

I always used chicken breast and low fat cheese sticks for training. Stock up when it's on sale. I throw skinless boneless chicken breast in my crockpot add a little water and go to work. When I get home I can shred one for tacos or salads or whatever for the family and I cut up one or two for the dog.

I love wellness well bites and they are scored for easily breaking into real small peices.

Vader is 9 weeks, he was on kibble when we got him at 8 weeks, and thats what Ive been using for treats so far. Probably have to step it up to keep him interested soon though.
