    DefaultBest Training treats

    Let's hear about your secret treats! WHat gets your dog to dogs attention the best!

    Note - I have been using just regular treats and kibble (mixed) but want to try special occassion treats for special training (flyball/recall/leave the poop alone!)

    My dog LOVES Natural Balance rolls. I buy him the smaller "sample" size and cut them into slices and then quarter them.
    Here is what the large size looks like, the sample ones I buy are only $.99

    I think some variation helps.* If one had a steady diet of caviar, a slice of bacon might become more tempting.

    I usually use kibbles from Puff's meals but* when they have a little bit of chicken fat or juices on them, they're more appealing.

    Puff likes fresh or dehydrated slices of bananas, apples, apricots, nectarines, peaches, mangoes, pears, etc.* Salmon also, but it crumbles badly when dehydrated.

    VERY easy, low cost, low kcal treats are Animal Crackers. (You can buy them in large containers at warehouse clubs like Costco, Sam's).

    Among the very best are pieces of hot dogs sliced nickle-coin thin, then sprinkled lightly with garlic powder, then nuked briefly in the microwave to set the garlic.

    Hot dogs. You can cut them up very small and they are very fragrant.

    Anything that stinks works well. Meat is what my dogs work for best. Any type of meat chopped up.

    Mine like garlic fired venison! String chees works well also, especially if you "spit" treats to your dog.

    Squeeze cheeze* ;D Murray will do back flips for the stuff (not really but close).

    I also order liver bark and sweet potato bark from tiger tail foods.* Good stuff.

    Kibble, old mother hubbard cookies and hotdog mix. I take one hotdog and chop it up into tiny bits.
    The smallest size OMH cookies I snap those in half.

    Cheese is a good motivator too.

    The trainer we used always told us to use something that is "special" to the dog, something that gets them exicted. He suggested Puperoni which we tried and our lab went crazy for. But, using the real thing, peperoni gets her even more exicted and its cheaper then dog treats if you pickup the presliced large bags at Sams or Costco.
