I would never feed something that has the potential to be toxic.

Anyways... Buddy does flips for peanut butter. Not really training treat worthy, but he loves it nonetheless.

All of our dogs are extremely food motivated and they get wellness bites, charlee bears (great for training!!) and Banzai and Bella get Innova treats and Buddy gets NB treats. Whew. Lots of treats. lol

My thoughts exactly. That's like me saying, there's a 50/50 chance this could be toxic so it's not always toxic, so I'm just going to go ahead and feed it.


As for my dogs, they love anything cheese.

I agree; I would never feed anything that has the potential to be toxic

My chis loooooove boiled chicken, cheese, baby carrots, blue berries, and yogurt Ooooh, and they love raw eggs.

In 'new' situations I try to go for stuff pretty smelly to keep her working. When it's old hat I can use near anything.

For a class where they are going to be getting a fair amount of food treats, I like to make up a mixed bag- keeps it interesting for the dog.
I'll mix chopped up chicken weiners, Charlee Bears, Natural Balance roll, homemade liver or salmon treast, chopped up leftover meat or chicken etc

I like to mix something lower cal and dry with something more moist and high value, because it's as if the smell and loisture of the weiners (for instance) gets onto the Charlee bears and they become more high value.

I like having cheese sticks on hand for jackpots.

My dogs love this bait for treats http://www.greatbait.com/ I buy it at the shows and it's the best stuff ever for bait in the ring.

As far as food treats go, they go insane for peanut butter and eggs...

Sawyer will almost wiggle himself to pieces to get a bit of beef jerky or Natural Balance roll, so those are the high value treats. Otherwise I use Charlee Bears and Benny Bully's dried liver bits.

We use Charlie Bears as training treats as well. They are the perfect size

Its all in the dosage. Buster like a bit of chocolate if I'm having some. Something like a billionth of a poisonous dose

He'll do just about anything for a standard milkbone actually. I tried to rubberize some hot dog, but its now extra crunchy...

Charlee Bears are great! I love the egg & cheese ones. They're the perfect size.
Old Mother Hubbard, Newman's Own, Natural Balance rolls, Solid Gold jerky, Zukes, Wellness... all good brands. Some are crunchy and some are soft, so it depends on what works for you in training. Auggie is a chewer so the crunchy stuff is not from training sessions, or he'll stop and crunch away! =P I've also seen something called Arks Natural Sea something or other..? Supposed to be good for joints. Have not tried it yet, though...

Like sam, I always put several different treats into my treat bag to try and keep it interesting. =>
