    Default Need Training Treat Help for Joey's Phase II Training

    I have been in search of a very HIGH VALUE training treat for Joey. Her only treats have always been Power Bites by Merrick. She loves them, they're small, and won't pack on the pounds. BUT she is used to them and not extremely HIGH VALUE anymore.

    So, I researched and purchased Stewarts freeze dried liver bites. SHE WOULD NOT TOUCH THEM, LOL

    Next I tried freezing fresh green beans.....sucked on them and spit them out. Ugggg

    She ADORES CHEESE, only gets once a month with heart worm pill.

    Does anyone know of a cheese type, bully safe, treat? I don't want to use so much dairy on Joey, she had really loose stools when I tried greek yogurt on her (we stopped that a long time ago)

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    Tyson's high value treat is a slice of oven roasted turkey. LOL He will do anything for that. It's instant stubborn reverse when you say "turkey" LOL

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Thank you Jessica! OK, so I am a vegetarian and I guess have pushed that somewhat on Joey, broke my heart that she would not eat the fresh green beans...hahah more for me!

    Anyhow, so do I just go to meat counter at the store and pick some up? That kind of roasted turkey? STOP LAUGHING......I really don't know

    Have you tried baby carrots? My girl gobbles them up, however picky is not in her wheelhouse. Her take on food is, if it's in-front of me I'll eat it

    We use mozzarella cheese sticks cut into super small pieces. The pups love them and will do anything for them. We also found some softer dog jerky that we slice into tiny pieces and they love. I've heard people doing the deli turkey before. Gonna have to try that one.

    Thank you! I have not tried baby carrots BUT I did drop one on the floor months back and remember thinking WOW Joey left that alone.....GO FIGURE!! You crack me up with "if it's in-front of me I'll eat it" soooooo not Joey. I guess because in her 11 months on this earth she has had little other than her kibble.....No I'm paying for it HAHAHAHA

    I just buy it from the deli, usually get 1/2 pound of the healthy oven roasted turkey - I only use it as high value - and it's only 1 slice ...... Oooook maybe 2 sometimes. I can't resist his face! I rather from the deli bc it's fresher in a sense vs the pre-packaged stuff

    My whole heart, Tyson.
