Default Any advice for treats for small pups?

So.. I bought Milkbone treats that advertised they were made from real bone marrow.. they were quite small and believe me Oreo & Ginger absolutely LOVED them.. but today i consider them unsafe because while i was grooming Oreo, he got too excited that i gave him one and it got stuck in his mouth!

At first I was like.. why aren't you chewing the treat? why are you keeping your mouth opened? lol .. And then 1 minute later while i was looking at him, i realized that it was stuck! he was still breathing fine.. i got soo scared and panicked.. i know how to do the heimlich maneuver & Cpr on humans.. but i had no idea what to do on Oreo! .. i was so scared of putting my finger to try to pry it out because he was moving his tongue so much that it was going deeper and deeper.. luckily.. my boyfriend just carefully did a fingersweep and it got unstuck!..

Boy was I scared to death. So after my long story, are there any treats that are tiny tiny? or melt in their mouth.. or something? i'm terrified of giving them treats... and just verbally praising them isnt enough.. any advice?

Try some sliced banana, in moderation. They love it!

Charlee Bear treats are very small. Fruit chopped up into small bits is good too. Innova dog food is pretty small too. Or break large biscuits into smaller pieces.

I use cat treats (Pounce, chicken/tuna flavor, moist) for training, they are the perfect size and soft.
