I posted one on another forum that got a lot of responses. Dogs' guilty pleasures. What treats does your dog get that really aren't meant for dogs? Mine eat gummy bears and that's their "high value" training treat. Really bad, but it makes them behave really good!

Gummy Bears? lol thats a good one. Lizzie's favorite is hot dogs, I make one hot dog and cop it into tiny pieces and she will work her butt off for them.

I was trying to teach her 'sit' with these crappy biscuits (silly me) and she would not sit at all, she actually started to run from me! When I started to use the hot dogs she learned sit, down and give me a paw in just one session!
Now she does them without treats which is great.

So I know this is off topic- but I'm going to join in too!

Kimi's guilty pleasure (and yes I'm a horrible human being for giving this to her, but I just can't help it when she gives me "sad eyes"), is ice cream. It doesn't matter what kind, if you pull out the ice cream bowls she sits in front of you and waits until you're finished until she can lick the bowl.

On the way out to our beach house we always stop at a certain ice cream shop that sells ice cream SO good that you have to *interview* to sell it. (Yes- it is that good). Both Tai and Kimi get a single scoop of vanilla when we go. (BAD ME! BAD ME!)

Tai also adores marshmallows- above any type of meat you could give him. What a bizarre dog!

Sam's guilty pleasure is banana yogurt and popcorn (kennel corn too! )

I agree with everyone... I have one dog with health issues already due to a poor choice of breeder, so I won't do the same mistake again.

I think I see what your point was though. Maybe a better question would be 'what breed would you adopt/not adopt from a shelter without knowing anything about its past'.

A breeder that does health and temperament testing and simply doesn't show in conformation is not automatically a BYB, IMO. I'd absolutely buy a Border Collie from a person who health tested and temperament tested (working the dog on stock is the ideal temperament test for the BC) but never put their dogs in shows, or even competed in trials. If I can see the dog in person and watch it work, i dont need titles or wins to prove to me that the dog can work.
