Ditto. Long ago one of my GSD obedience trainers taught me this one...only I microwave til they're dry and bag them...they last for months--unless you use them all.

Lilie It all depends on what I'm doing with my dog. If I'm going somewhere with a lot of distractions, I'll bring something of high value. If I need something that will carry well in my pocket (of high value) I'll bring string cheese.

If I'm at home and just working the dog(s) in the pasture, I'll get a handful of their normal kibble and put it in my pocket.

If I'm teaching something new and difficult (and starting the process in my house), I'll use anything raw.

Wild Wolf I bake my own, have tons of recipes. If I buy, it is always either Orijen Freeze-dried Raw Treats or the Purebites.. either beef liver or duck.

Springbrz Wellness Wellbites or Cheddar cheese cut into tiny cubes 1/4 in x1/4 in. I use both for training and tracking. I also use a variety of freeze dried raw.

GatorBytes I dehydrate sliced beef heart, make beef jerky, slice turkey hearts (make little rounds) and dehydrate those too...chicken hearts sometimes, but I cut fat off (so time consuming) so less greasy and they take 24hrs, the other noted take about 8-10 hrs using a dehydrator.

I also bake a soft treat (med.) with nominal flour (quinioa, spelt, buckwheat - never wheat however), liver (turkey, chicken or beef), blueberries, garlic, egg and coconut oil. Cut into 1" squares using a pizza cutter and freeze....take out a daily portion to thaw...I break a square into 4,5 or even 6 mini treats.

They kinda resemble the wellness ones, but I know what goes in...also not messy at all.

EASY HOMEMADE TREATS
Items needed:
Non Stick Fry Pan
Large Round Steak or Pork Chops or Calves Liver or Lamb
Scissors
1. Trim off all fat on the edges and in-between and if it has bone, remove that too. If using Calves Liver, thaw, and blot well with paper towel to remove excess blood.
2. Take a pair of scissors (outstanding tool for cutting meat) and cut the meat into manageable pieces.
3. Choose a fry pan (non stick works the easiest) that will hold the amount of meat you bought, and give the pan a small drop of oil or a quick spray of Pam.
4. Heat the pan until really hot and drop in the meat pieces in to sizzle. Keep your heat high but don’t leave the pan unattended.
5. Sprinkle on a little garlic powder or garlic salt if desired.
6. Let it sizzle for about a minute or two then flip over. Braise the other side (pour off the juice if there is too much) and remove from pan when the middle is pink (especially the Liver or it will crumble). Place on to paper towel, blot and let cool.
7. Take your scissors and cut all of the meat in strips about ¼” wide. Now take those strips and cut small pieces about the size of a ½ of a dime, (or whatever size you prefer).
8. Place small amounts into sealable snack baggies, then place those baggies into a sealable freezer baggie and place in freezer. When you need them, take out one or two baggies, place them in the frig and they will un-thaw. Of course the dogs love them frozen too, if you forget! They will unthaw quickly on the cupboard or in your pocket for training.
The process takes a little time but saves a lot of $$ and the dogs go crazy for them!
