Training treats

I'm looking for a training treat that's not to expensive that won't give Shasta the runs when used in large large quantities. She seems to have a rather delicate tummy. I use her kibble at home, but if there are going to be any distractions, the kibble just isn't interesting enough. I've tried cheese, chicken jerky, some kind of dog biscuits and hot dogs. She loves then all but...the runs.

I'd prefer something that doesn't leave a greasy residue on my fingers.

wellness pure rewards? natural balance rolls?

I use cheese, diced chicken, hot dogs but we don't have issues with poop...

Thanks for the suggestions. I've never heard of those. Will they have them at PetSmart?

My local Petsmart just started selling wellness products but they don't carry the natural balance rolls. Petco carries both though.

I use cheese sticks and cubes of cooked chicken- that shouldn't bother her tummy too much. My beagle loved those little oyster crackers- cheap and easy to use. I've also used grapes and diced apples but that might not work for Shasta. I've seen trainers use BilJac, it's kind of like playdoh and has lots of salt but dogs seem to love it.

My new favorite is Zukes. Their Mini Naturals are great for training, they are really small chewy pieces. The Mini Bakes are a small crunchy treat that can be broken in half. They also make training squares, I forget what they are called. I like to use them for agility when he is doing quick grabs because they are a little bit bigger and save the fingers a little.

Grapes are not good for dogs. Might want to do some reading or ask your vet before using those again.

Natural balance rolls cut in to tiny pieces, you can order a big chub on Amazon and cut into small chunks and freeze and then cut tiny pieces, I usually cut up enough for the week and store in big freezer bag in thr fridge...no greasy fingers, no runs....

I use natural balance rolls, string cheese, or block cheese cut small-pea size, mix them together in the baggie.
Keeps the interest and the dog isn't distracted by crunching or chewing some of the other treats I've tried.
