    Default Treats? What is your favorite?

    We have decided on feeding FROMMS when Khaleesi comes home. (as long as she likes it and it agrees with her)
    As she's going to be a brand new pup I haven't decided if it's a good idea to use treats to help train her or not. (but that's a different issue)
    When we went to the specialty pet food store, other than raw they recommended a brand of treat called Ziwi Peak.
    Has anyone tried these? I know that a lot of people give their bullies raw veggies as treats as well, but I wanted to have something on hand in a pinch too.
    Any suggestions or info is extremely welcome!

    Can't say that I have heard of them. We usually have a bag of he kibble with us when we go out and use that. When we are home it is ice cubes, fruits, veggies and yogurt.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    We also use Ziwi training treat but Fergus also likes fruits and vegi. At puppy training class we use Ziwi and at home blueberries, cut up carrots, watermelon, frozen green beans, ice cubes, and banana. They do get a after walk NVI Lamb doggy cookie.

    I do recommend getting a puppy Kong its a great teething and occupying toy. As she gets older you can get the bigger kong. You can also stuff with kibbles and top with no salt organic peanut butter then freeze. Dont fill the whole kong with peanut butter unless you want to deal with runny poo. They love it. Its a nice treat for crate training or when you need to leave the house it will help with the separation.

    Well, it wasn't intentional, but I bought some fresh cut pineapple from Publix last weekend and dropped it on the floor... so it became Aubie's treat and she LOVES it. Otherwise, she gets a variety of fruits and veggies that they can eat.

    We feed Fromm also, And we learned with HRH that it's hard to find treats that are different than her food that she also tolerated all the ingredients so we started to use a little of her kibble as "treats" (It's all in the presentation) Works for us.

    It works for Amelia too, so her kibble is also the same thing we use to train her. We have to be very careful with not allowing her to be overweight because of her hips, so this is also another way we can monitor exactly how much she's eating.

    But we've also used Apples, banana's, steamed broccoli and steamed green beans as treats on occasion and HRH loved those too. We haven't tried everything on Amy yet since she's still young. She is always chomping on one flower or another in the back yard. Some will upset her tummy at times.

    You already got great advice above from everyone, so I don't have much to add. I also have not heard of these treats, but we use the wellness soft chews and I tear them in half, for each one, but these are used only as a really special treat, otherwise we also use their Fromms Beef Kibble, as a treat to get them to come, or when we ask them to sit etc. at home they get fruits and vegetables. I have a couple of recipes for homemade treats and cookies, but I haven't tried making them yet, but plan to soon. I'm always leery of store bought treats because my guys don't really chew their food, but tend to inhale, especially Blossom, she's a food Hoover. Lol. I'm also worried about store bought treats, especially the ones from China, as we had a lot of recalls here in Canada, on these treats due to dogs getting sick with kidney failure, vomiting, and some died. Two women I work with lost their dogs, one a Sheltie, and one a Maltese to kidney failure, the vet couldn't 100% tell them it was from the chicken jerky treats from China, but they suspect, and a lot of other dogs had the same thing happen to them. It was in the news and I think it was Glycerin that they found in the treats that they said caused the illnesses and deaths. I want to try home made treats, because then you control the ingredients , and you know what's in them.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
