Default Need treat suggestions.

I'm looking for some treat suggestions for Frodo, now that he seems to be showing sensitivities to, well, everything.

I am looking for something that is easy enough to cut/break into tiny pieces and easy to dole out for training purposes while we are out walking.

Protein sources that are okay:
Beef
Bison
Pork
Rabbit
Fish (his favorite treats are Pure Bites Whitefish, but they are too big of pieces and too crumbly to use all the time)
Any meatless treats (preferably excluding anything with peanut butter, it doesn't seem to sit well with him lately).

I have all beef hot dogs. Cheese. Fruitables Skinny Minis. Bravo freeze dried bison liver. S&C freeze dried beef.
I have been using K9 Granola Factory Coconut Crunchers lately, but at 10.99 a bag, they are a bit spendy when we see other dogs and I go through a ton.

I'm open to treats I can buy and also treats that I can make, if anyone has good recipes. I know there was a tuna training treat that was floating around the forums, if anyone has that I'd love to have that one!

I am so tired of nothing working with him and dealing with the itching and the diarrhea if he gets anything that he isn't supposed to have. Frustration!

TIA everyone!

You can make pate-style canned food into jerky - roll it out thin (1/8"-1/4") and lightly score on a cookie sheet then bake at low heat until dried/jerky-like.

I had a student who had hunter friends that gave her venison which she used cooked for treats.

Gerber or off-brand freeze-dried fruit bits for babies.

"" fruit or veggie puffs for babies.

I also have been using the Blue Buffalo training treat Stix - they have a beef variety with no other proteins and are super easy to break, plus seem to be pretty high value ime.

Similarly, I like the Zukes Mini Naturals, which come in Salmon and Rabbit with no other proteins.

Zukes also makes Z-filets which worked really well for Aeri when she was adjusting to a more varied treat selection and got an upset tummy from rich stuff. We used the chicken, but they do have beef and venison options.

I didn't know that the Z-filets came in beef, that is awesome!
I am going to order some of those and the Blue Stix tomorrow. Thanks!

I had no clue, I am definitely going to try that!

Yea I had a client with a dog that literally couldn't have any protein but venison and nothing carbwise other than rice because she was on an elimination diet for allergies - I got creative! The canned food jerky ended up being a midlevel treat for the dog (a cute little Boykin).

I've been getting most of my treats i the cat section lately. Petco has dried salmon that is the perfect size and very stinky, I'll have to go look what brand it is. Also freeze dried or frozen cooked shrimp. I get the frozen for a dollar a bag at dollar tree

Zuke's has Mini Naturals in rabbit and salmon, Z-Filets in beef, and Jerky Naturals in beef and salmon. They're all single-protein, but not grain-free, unfortunately. Plato has Thinkers in salmon (they're stick-shaped, so really easy to cut up). Pet Botanics makes a salmon-based Omega Treat. Wellness Pure Rewards makes one that's all beef. The shrimp PureBites (the cat ones), if they're big enough. NutriSource has salmon treats. PureVita's Skin & Coat treats are single protein salmon (I don't know how easy they'll cut up, I've never used them).

That's all I can think of lol. I've used most of these for Jack - he gets bored with training treats super easily, so I need to have three or four different kinds at once.

Thank you thank you!

Mandy, I will definitely be making those!

Frodo works harder for crunchy treats than he does soft treats, so I am going to start with the jerky style since they should be easier to crack apart than the thicker biscuit style.
