Default What is your dog's *favorite* treat?

What doggie treat will your dog absolutely do anything for? In particular, I'm interested in treats that are suitable for training.

I have a Dobie pup who'd eat orange peels and toilet paper if offered and a Poodle who, on occassion, walks away from chicken. Depends on the dog. For obedience training on a daily basis, I microwave turkey franks and chop into small pieces, putting several baggies in the fridge. The bait often ends up in my mouth during attention exercises, so this is important. I also use Natural Balance rolls and cut into wedges when taking bait from home for shows/conformation. There are so many treats out there, some with fewer additives and preservatives than these, that you should be able to find something all of your dogs like quite easily. The key is something easily broken into whatever size you determine is appropriate and that it's soft. The dog has to be able to chew and swallow without lowering head, interupting the exercise or taking his focus off of you.

Lizzie reallllly loves Mozzorela Cheese sticks.... She LOVES them.

She also likes cooked (like grilled or boiled) chicken.

Honestly she likes any and all cooked meats. And most cheeses.

I use all of these as treats for training anything.

grapes
Careful - you know those are toxic, right?

Meg has gotten less picky over the last year. She'll work for pretty much any meat or cheese; I rarely use "dog treats", but the ones she loves are the Dogswell Chicken breathies.

For really big-deal situations, nothing works better than a McDonald's double cheeseburger, plain. But since that is probably borderline toxic as well , they are saved for special situations.

Not always. Some dogs can eat them constantly without any ill effects, others die after eating one.

It's better to be safe than sorry but if your dog is already eating grapes then I don't see any reason to worry.

Why would you feed them even if you know they can kill your dog?
