    Default Training Treats

    I have just signed Mayhem up for obedience training classes. I currently am using a grain free chewy treat for his potty training rewards, peanut butter and carrots in his Kong, etc. However, he is not super motivated by food. He is proving very stubborn, regarding the come command (he has selective hearing ). The instructor asked me to to do some trial and error and find a treat that he loves for this particular command to use during our training sessions. I am looking for any suggestions for healthy treats that your dogs love. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Default Re: Training Treats

    We give our guys treats like fruits and vegetables, bananas, apple, carrot, etc yogurt, green beans, but these are supplements to their food, but when we are training them or want them to do something we usually just use a few pieces of their kibble as a reward.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    cheese sticks is what our trainer used and so we are using also in training obedience. Ace is highly food motivated so most anything would work but the maltese is as finicky as they get but the cheese sticks work for the maltese too. Just cut the sticks into several small pieces.

    HAHA!! I never thought of pig tongues!!! Buster would LOVE those! I'm going to go get some right now. We used Hebrew National Kosher Beef Hot Dogs split into little pieces when he was in class and loved them until the one class i gave him one to many and he poo'd right in the middle of a big test. Super embarrassing but they did work well.

    To make them last a bit longer a usually dry them after cooking. Without drying they're only good for a couple of days.
    I boil them for two hours, chop to pieces and put them in the owen for over the night at about 120F. Sounds like a lot of work, but I make a lot at once and what matters for me more is that I really know what's in them. Now recalls yet....

    The brand "PET N SHAPE" has some freeze dried treats that are 100% fruit / vegetable. Read the label - they have chicken liver ones too -- don't get those. (Been there, done that: hives) Bea and Bo LOVE the Banana/Apple and the Sweet Potato something or other. The only thing higher value than these treats -- to them -- is a hotdog. Yeah. They're that good. Perfect size for treating too; they're tiny little squares.

    Natures variety makes one called raw boost bites, all natural freeze dried, beef, chicken, lamb and venison. I use lamb and venison.
    I also use Omega treats, all natural as well, either the salmon or duck.
    I found some all natural dehydrated chicken jerky. She loooves it, we use it on our walks and aggression redirection.
    Good luck!
    Everyday I see an improvement. Everyday she respects and trusts me even more. I'm honored that she chose me...
