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
- 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 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!
