I need the name of a really good biscut or treat to give Mercedes..she gets Nutro Max biscuts now and carrots , bananas, green beans, cherrios, and animal crackers as treats also..but I need a good dog biscut. I heard OLd Mother Hubbard are supposed to be good, but cannot find them at pet stores or know anythng about them. What do you suggest?

I don't buy biscuits anymore, I make my own. When I started reading the ingredients I found sugars, and sodium, and artificial this and artificial that........ I wanted to get away from chemicals and preservatives, so I make my own....... sorry I can't recommend any store bought biscuits.

I always bought them on-line at Petco. I like the ingredients. But I haven't been giving my girls dog treats since all this recall stuff. I give them Cheerios.
I did look on the Old Mother Hubbard Bitz & Meaties that I bought & there was no wheat gluten in them.

I used to use dehyrdated banana/apple slices & hotdog slices sprinkled with garlic powder & nuked in the microwave.

Now I mainly use some of Puff's next kibble meal, a few kibbles at a time, given for each successful response -- kind of a modified NiLiF (Nothing in Life is Free) protocol.

BUT sometimes I take a fresh banana along and bite off a slice of it to feed to Puff for a task well done.

usually use other treats like you, carrots, green beans, dried bananas ect. as far as bisquits go I have 'blue" holistic bisquits for Sammi right now- she seems to love them, but then again she seems to love everything ;)

We are using lots of things right now. They get Eukanuba biscuits when they go in the crates. We use a treat we got at a show but I don't remember the name. Our favorite is the Gerber fruit puffs from the baby aisle.

Jefferson really likes Newmans Own organic dog treats. Also, our trainer recommended the Natural Balance roll (in comes in a roll; in turkey, beef and I think duck) sliced into small pieces and frozen for treats.

I really like the Buddy Biscuits for a good, all-natural treat. All of their treats are free of corn, soy, sugar, and salt. They also make a soft treat without propylene glycol, BHA, or BHT which makes for a great training treat. (I break the soft ones up into smaller bits for training.)

OK, I'm guilty of giving biscuits. I was getting the Purina ONE Large Breed biscuits (I liked the size) at Target, but Target stopped carrying the Large Breed biscuits. So, now I get either the Lamb and Rice or the Turkey & Rice. I would get the Pro Plan biscuits, but comparing the ingredients with the Purina ONE, they seem the same and the ONE biscuits are a bit cheaper.

We feed Hudson Wellness treats. There make a few different flavors and they are wheat free and a pretty natural treat. They are a little on the expensive end though. Lately I have been doing training with Hudson and giving him raw almonds. He absolutely loves them and I don't mind him eating them either.

we use carrots for treats in our house. we have both dogs trained to love fruits and veggies and they act like you have just given them a piece of heaven when you feed them something like this.
