I would suggest Innova for puppies. It a very good brand of dog food (holistic) and most dogs like the taste. I'm not sure about the treats since she will be a very tiny puppy but I'm sure others will be able to help.

Mother Hubbards makes a good selection of different treats. Innova makes treats, Karma, another one of NaturaPet's lines, makes treats. I've found some other good ones from Barnstone. Some stores will even have good ones from actual bakeries that use good ingredients.

If he likes his food you can just feed him his kibble as treats too

Saje, that's just what Carl is doing; he thinks Kona shouldn't have treats like CJ and Max because then she will always want them. Men, men, men!!!!!!!!!!! That's all I have to say....

I'd like to see that, will you be sitting on your haunches while you shake?

well i guess i was just concerned on whats good for her.... i am new to the breed and have been reading up on it, i do think treats differ breed to breed, so i am just trying to be cautious, and she will have special treats as a reward, she can get her food any other tie LOL!!! plus shes gonna have long white fur, and well i also want to stay away from messy sticky stuff that might get stuck in her hair LOL!!!!!!! if thats possible i also want to make sure shes getting the right stuff to naw on for her teeth, that helps keep em clean too.... i want all the good stuff whose got the goods!!! LOl, i dont even know if i know where any of thsoe stores are at, ive never heard of them im soo deprived, i have a child i obviously dont get out much!!
