My Favorite Treats for Training

I often get asked about my favorite treats for training. After having been training dogs for more than ten years, I have plenty of suggestions!

Single Ingredient Treats:
For treats that need to be high value or for dogs with allergies and other food sensitivities, single ingredient varieties are great! Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Pure Bites
  • Fig & Tyler (Use code KM2856 for 10% off your purchase)

Freeze Dried Raw:
For those of you feeding a raw diet who want similar options for treats, here are a few great brands:

  • Vital Essentials
  • Bixbi
  • Fig & Tyler
  • Natural Balance

High Value Treats:
In additional to those listed above, there are other high value treats to try:

  • Happy Howie's Meat Rolls]
  • Kong Peanut Butter Squeeze Tube

These are bite sized, soft training treats that I always have in a pinch"

  • Bixbi Pocket Trainers
  • Pet Botanics
  • Crazy Dog Train Me treats

Human Food:
Human foods also make great rewards. Here are a few to try:

  • String Cheese
  • Hot Dogs (I prefer turkey dogs)
  • Cooked and cubed chicken
  • Frozen premade meatballs (no seasonings)

I hope you can use this list to help spice up your training and give your dog some variety!
