name that training treat

Roxy and I have class again tonight. I'm looking for that "just right" gonna grab her attention and keep it treat.

I have tried almost all HIGH GRADE bagged treat...will eat it but wont' focus to get it

have tried the cheese sticks..again she will eat it...won't focus for it

and last week hot dogs...same thing.

I do have to stay away from chicken and beef ( since switching to fish and sweet potato food we have had 0 throw ups) The turkey hot dogs she likes, didn't make her sick but she's not focused on them.


I have a local mom and pop pet store here and I have a walmart -- no petco or anything like that so it has to be something I can find local. Also any ideas on something "real foodish?" I can do that too

here was one more question -- she IS interested in the cat's fish treats...will that hurt her? I am assuming not...but then again I would need to try it out away from the house and make sure it's not just "I see the cats eat it and I want it" kind of a thing

Have you tried Wellness, either the Wellbites or Pure? I have yet to find a dog that will turn their nose up at them

Limited ingredient, not cheap but easy to break into smaller pieces

Also, fast her before class. A little hunger will hopefully perk up her appetite for the treats, a picky dog with a full stomach is going to be extra picky that's for sure.

My dogs all love dehydrated liver. It's easy to make (stinks up the house) and lasts a while. It can be broken up into tiny pieces or large pieces.

I agree with the Wellness Wellbites dog treats, my boys LOVE them.

you can only give a little but of liver every day. I go through about a pound of treats a day (given instead of food) so as much as he loves liver I need other options.

I use premade raw, delifresh vital rolls and delifresh bits, forgot the name of them
my dog goes crazy for either but I also don't feed him. for now he gets almost all his food in training

also my dog also loves the cheap cat treats temptations. so do my cats. all of them go nuts or it. I've bought the expensive treats and my cats won't touch them and my dog will but it's not nearly the temptations reaction.

so I give it sometimes. yeah total junk but oh well.

Does it have to be food treats? Definitely fast if so.

We have something our trainers call puppy crack. This stuff works wonders with nearly every dog. You can cut it into pieces and freeze the portions you're not using.

I was directing my suggest to the OP who originally asked the question, not to you. The OP was asking about what to take to CLASS and not feeding a POUND of treats a day. Which, btw, is an tremendous amount of treats.

I utilize dehydrated liver once a week during Agility. It is my high value treat.

and I was making a comment to the op about being careful with using liver too much. no one told me about it and at some point I went overboard with it.

I don't know about her class but when I went to meet a trainer that trains with treats she told me to bring about a pound. she said 2 cups. so they usually go through a large amount.

my dog gets almost all his food through training. it's not treats per se, i just call it that. it's premade raw and rolls that some people use as everyday food
