Usually I just use weiners or leftover meat of ours and I've bought chicken and cheap steak for them also. I don't tend to use a lot of packaged training treats - they get too expensive. Occassionally I'll buy Zukes and recently I've been using Ziwipeak as a medium sized bag of that goes a long way and the dogs love it, but normally I tend to just buy whatever meat is cheap at the store. But, my treats are really only used for training sessions. I don't freely hand out treats around the house all day - if I did that I would probably just use kibble.

I use string cheese for Lucy. None of the slime that meat leaves all over my hands, and her tummy is so sensitive it's all she can handle anyway. She also loooooves these things:

They're nice because they're really soft, so you can break them into tiny pieces. Stinky as heck though.

I dehydrate my own raw liver, lung or chicken strips.

I have found that Swiss cheese - even the slices - don't tend to mush up like regular cheese.

My dogs love this recipe. It's easy to make and it freezes well.

I really like Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits (they have grain-free ones now, too). And Jackson still goes crazy for them, and he's particular about his treats. I rotate between flavors.

For high value reward, I use string cheese. Or sometimes plain chicken.

I normally use hotdogs or string cheese... of course, Walsh thinks food comes after chasing things... so he gets a tennis ball. Nothing get his attention like a hairy green ball. lol.

When I use food, I just throw it in a sandwich bag and fold the ends of the bag over the treatbag. This way the inside of the treat bag doesn't get all yucky.

I vary it up a lot - I use home stuff like chopped weenies, cheese pieces or oven-baked liver broken up, but I also use a lot of store-bought yummies (yay staff discount!) like Zukes, My Mighty Wolf, freeze-dried liver, and other soft-moist treats.

When I buy training treats, I like the Pet Botanics and the Crazy Dog brands. I'll also buy a big bag of Beggin Strips/Pupperoni and break them up into tiny less than bite size pieces, as the dogs love them and go crazy for them.

And cat food. Seriously. I'm sure that'd be a bit high calorie if that is all you used, but mixing it in or using it when you really need to get a point across? The dogs LOVE it.

I've also used hot dogs, cheese, cheerios, and goldfish crackers on occasion. lol
