Talking Unusual high value rewards

Okay, I was talking with someone earlier about how outdoors Lara doesn't seem too interested in toys or food because exploring is the ultimate reward (5 months old etc, working on building a tug drive with some pointers from a friend), but there are two things so goes absolutely crazy for: a milk jug on a string and a mop that we bought for her to attack.

So, I will be going out on our adventure today with a milkjug in my backpack and she will be rewarded with her favorite game, no matter how weird it looks

Do your dogs have any weird or unusual things you use for high value rewards?

For some reason Lakota loves baling twine from my hay bales. I certainly don't allow her to have it but I do enjoy a little tease to get a perfect heel from her. She really loves the orange ones for some reason.

I once had someone bring a garbage can lid to training.... they had been asked to bring their dog's favorite toy.

For obedience, we use frozen Bil Jac, hot dogs, or if you wanna have them go berserk, buy one of those greasy pre cooked rotisserie chickens at the grocery store.

When Finn was just a pup and I was trying to figure out a good reward that I could use without sending him into overdrive with a ball, I slathered an old rag with bacon grease and kept it in the freezer. I'd take it outside and by the time we were done, it was nice and smelly. You would've thought his eyes were going to pop out of his skull with excitement. It wasn't enough to make him sick from licking up the excess, but it was tasty enough to use as a Super Jackpot.

RIP Sebastian, Baby, Cheyenne, Baxter. Gone but never forgotten.
