    At times we use the Fromm's 4 star grain free treats, but that is on rare occasions. Most of the time we give her various fruits and veggies for treats as well as yogurt and fruit cubes and kefir. As it is starting to cool off we will start making pumpkin and banana biscuits and other warm snacks for Harlea.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Hi, we do the same as Todd (Marine91), we give our guys, plain unsweetened yogurt on their morning kibble, for the probiotics, they also get frozen yogurt occasionally, they get half a banana each about twice a week, as it's higher in sugar, we give them strawberries, cut up apples, baby carrots, green beans, cheese strings, we give them wellness duck and lamb soft chew treats occasionally, but if we are training them, or bribing them, lol. Or wanting th EM to come or do something we just use a couple of pieces of their own kibble. I occasionally home bake my own natural dog treats, using ingredients like oats, peanut butter, applesauce, bananas. There are a lot of great recipes from members on this site, under the food and nutrition forum, and you can also find a lot of recipes on the Internet. When starting out with treats, it's best to give just one type at a time and use it for a week, this way you will know which one they don't tolerate, or have any allergic reaction to, then you can eliminate that one.

    We do the same as the advice above... if I do buy treats I try to make sure they are grain-free, Wellness has some good choices and so does Fromm. My dogs love the yogurt added in w/their kibble, or veggies... I'm really trying to cut back on the treats because Winston is a BIG baby. Plus when my 2 year old grandson is here, he is constantly getting "snacks" from him... LOL

    So I do the same thing as the other posters above minus the cheese & yogurt thanks to Winston's tummy. He'll get bananas, strawberries, cucumbers, green beans, broccoli (which he LOVES to make a mess of), carrots and a bunch of other fruits / veggies.

    Instead of the cheese / yogurt I'll give him bully sticks and some chicken jerky that's high in protein, but low in fat. You can get them from pet stores or online (I prefer Amazon for the bully sticks because you can get a full lb for $20 - if you want I can post the link). The chicken jerky is made by Blue Buffalo and is 100% chicken breast just dried out. He loves it, the cat, not so much (although Fergus would eat potato chips if I let him...odd cat).

    June loves bell peppers, cheese, apples and frozen green beans. We also freeze greek yogurt and peanut butter in her kong to keep her busy sometimes. We also buy Fromms grain free treats and she loves those as well.

    We give Curly various types of treats by blue but he is most responsive to cheese treats so we use cheese to train.

    heard Cranberry juice is good for them, but what about Craisins (dried up cranberries). Would that be good for a bulldog

    I give "Bravo! Bonus Bites" either in Lobster or Salmon. They're just freeze dried Lobster or Salmon, no other ingredients. They're also made in the U.S. You don't want to buy treats/food for your pup that are made in China.

    I also have Fromm treats but find them too big so I always cut 'em up. Thing is, cutting them creates a mess and I lose a lot of the product. They may also be too big for a 9 week old puppy to swallow comfortably.
    Really wish they made the Fromm treats smaller.
