their meal...utilize every meal as a training session!
I feed raw, so that is a bit of a challenge, I used natural balance rolls cut into pea size portion, bil-jac frozen, string cheese, cooked chicken cut small. I don't think I ever used the commercial treats. And when I was given some by other trainers, my dogs weren't into them...especially the crunchy ones.

I used the natural balance rolls for training. He gets it for breakfast too, but he loves it.

I use Pet Botanics Mini training rewards. 200 treats for $2 from Petsmart. Several different flavors and sizes available. Another member on here suggested them and both my puppy and I love them.

I either cook liver or use freeze dried buffalo. The buffalo works better for long sessions as it does not have to be refrigerated and is soft enough for the dog to eat quickly.

I use Bravo brand. It's 100% grass fed buffalo with no hormones. They sell it locally at the dog food store. They also have lobster and venison but the buffalo is the best because it's soft and easy for the dog to eat quickly.
