|Galathiel||It does depend on how picky your pup is. ALL food has value to my puppy. He'll work just as hard for a tiny crumb from a dog biscuit as he would for hot dog. I'm still looking for something that's the penultimate high value treat. Haven't found one yet that surpasses them all. He works for his food, hot dogs, bits of dog biscuit, and (my usual) small cubes of Wellness Wellbites.|

Holding the bladder for 6 hours for a young pup like that is really good!
Delgado's favourite treats were and still are carrots. For training treats I made up a bag mixing his kibble, Wellness Wellbites, and dehydrated liver so he never knew which treat was coming next. It helps keep him on his toes and negates any expectations from him on which treats I should be feeding him lol
I don't like feeding "empty" treats; if I'm feeding something it should have value to it either in nutrition or value in the dog's eyes. I don't see cereal having either of those IMO I don't think it will hurt but it wouldn't be something I would want to feed. Look at the ingredients and make your decision from there

Rant and a question? (moved to feeding puppy)
IM SO PROUD OF RIDLEY! She is doing such a great job with her potty training. Today my wife and I had to work all day and we had made plans for a family friend to stop by, let her out and play with her for a couple hours. Well unfortunately, he wasn’t able to stop by, so she was in her crate for a totally of 6 hours. (not happy about that) But she didn’t have any accidents in her crate at all. When my wife got home Ridley ran for the back door but couldn’t hold it. I am so proud that she is just over 10 weeks old and I can see that she is getting the potty training. Cant even try to be upset at her for having an accident at the door, she was really trying hard. Believe me, she will not be in her crate for that long ever again, our work schedules just made the perfect storm today. I just wanted to rant a little about my baby girl. She’s doing great with basic commands and she’s learning “Gentle” when she gets her treats. She’s still a hand full but she is learning so fast.
But I do have a question while I'm here. Someone told me that instead of using pet store treat, that you can use gluten free cereal. Is that ok for puppies/ dogs to eat?
