High Value Treats

What type of training treats (if any) do you use for your dogs? I've recently starting clicker training with Rocky & Shelby (it's going GREAT!!), but Rocky has a sensitive stomach, so I have to be careful what kind of treats I'm using. I've heard that bits of hot dog work really well, but I did have one of my other dogs get sick on those once, so I'm a little leary of that. Any other suggestions? I've been using bits of bread and Rocky's food, but I'd like something of higher value when we're working on behavior issues.

Re: High Value Treats

I made some Chicken liver treats and cut them up really small. Kiah is crazy for them so they are what I use as high value.

I have to warn you that my home stunk when baking these. If you want the recipe, PM me.

Re: High Value Treats

We made deer jerky to use as treats. And we also use ringwurst/Lyoner.
Making treats from liver is always a hit for the dogs although our noses take a punch making it.

Re: High Value Treats

I also use the chicken liver treats that you bake...for extra special treats I use cheese. But she'll do pretty much anything for the liver treats...and the recipe (it's under the recipe section) makes a TON for like $3.

Re: High Value Treats

I could not use hotdogs as it gave my girl the runs.
I could not use ring wurst either same thing.

I use a dog wurst made in a german deli now works great and acts like crack to dogs. For a while I was making chicken hearts but I learned
Chicken hearts make doggy farts! Real bad!

Re: High Value Treats

Thank you! The chicken liver treats sound like a good bet...I'll check that out...don't know how much I'd like the stink though! Any other ideas?

Re: High Value Treats

Dehydrated lamb lung. It's v. popular with the dogs, breaks neatly into small pieces and isn't at all messy.

Re: High Value Treats

Here's the recipe I use, I cut down the garlic powder though since it's all still so wishy washy on garlic and dogs:

Liver Brownies
20 oz. chicken livers
2 cups flour
2 tbsp. garlic powder

Puree livers in processor
Add flour and garlic powder, process until smooth. It will be thick, like brownie dough.

Line a 9x13 pan with foil and spray with Pam. Pour the dough into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes
Cool. Cut into squares. Freeze.
Will keep ~3months in freezer, 3 days in fridge.

The smell goes away eventually, I usually do this on weekends when I can open up some windows. I cut it into little squares and it makes about 4 sandwich bags full!

or frozen BilJac. Both work great, although the NB rolls would probably be better if the dog has food sensitivities.

Re: High Value Treats

We use the dehydrated lambs lung also. Can be found at some of your non-chain pet food stores.
