brands of treats...

could you all share training treat brands and names? I'm working with my 4 month old Roxy ...so will need puppy appropriate size. Thank you...somebody had mentioned freeze dried stuff...do you have brand names?

also in training ..how do you know if you are using too many treats?

I use the Zukes bite sized ones. 3 calories a treat. I also use his kibble a lot. With already learned tricks

I use:

Purebites liver treats, they have duck, chicken, and beef flavour. Very easy to break into small pieces for training and not stinky or too soft that they squish in the bag or in your fingers. Very easy treat but not very high value for my dogs

Rollover has a semi moist food in a roll which I've used several times. Easy to cut into small pieces for training, another high value treat though cutting a section off each time can be a little annoying

Wellness Wellbites. Again, very easy to break into small pieces, nice and stinky so very high value. Several different flavours to choose from for variety and definitely both of my dog's favourite treats.

I use very small bites for treats, it makes them last longer and cuts back on the calories they're consuming. In a training session I usually go through 5 Wellbites, or 10 Purebites, or about a 1/2" chunk of the Rollover for a 10-15 minute session

You could also use cheese, hot dogs (check ingredients), steak.

American cheese is good. Just remember you use small pea size treats so a little can actually go a long way.

the vet tech used that squirt cheese to have Roxy licking up while she got her shots...I'm thinking you wouldn't want to do that too often though..that's processed crap isn't it? Like cheeze - whiz?

ok ...so I have written all of this down..and will head off to the pet store today to see what I can find. Right now what I am using is Newmans Natural peanut butter triangles and blueberry triangles...omg she loves them but I think I could do some "harder" jobs with a tastier treat.
