Treats question

Using treats for incentives; do I give my pup a different treat for different request?
Example
I give a TREAT A for when she goes potty outside.
Do I give her TREAT A when training her for other tasks like sit, leave it, etc. Or do I give her TREAT B for those other tasks?

I like to mix up treats, keeps them at a higher value so one time it'll be treat A, next time treat B. But I don't deliberately switch treats for different situations like the one you're describing.

Thanks! My goal is to make sure the value stays high and the pup works for them.
