Default whats your dogs favorite treat?

Just wondering what treats everyones dog goes crazy about. I'm looking for some very motivational treats to hold my pups attention. He's 7 months old now and under very distracting situations I can't hold his attention nor will he even acknowledge that I have a treat.

I've tried hotdogs---likes alot, but not enough
dog treats----ditto above
velvetta cheese----loves, but again not enough

got any ideas what I could try?

My girls loooove liver treats, I got some in a roll-type a couple of weeks ago, sliced it into small pieces and they're great for training. They also love raw bones.

He eats treats that are made by his food--Natural Choice-- I know, I know... but it's the only decent food I can afford at this point. He likes those--but not enough.

Cheese & Peanut Butter (not together)-- I believe he loves.

That's it... but at Gaddy's advice I'm going to get some liver treats as soon as I can and try those out.

I have found that the liver really does work well for training. My girls absolutely love them - they'll slam their bottoms to the ground in .2 seconds when I say "sit," LOL and my neighbor's dog, whom I train, absolutely looooves liver treats (She's really picky and won't obey very well if I don't have them. I use a different brand for her than I do for the girlies though.)

Can't go wrong with liver treats! But maybe he's associating a treat with having to "work" and not just being loved on with a treat by his Daddy? FROSTY PAWS are always a fav and you can just sit out in the yard with him holding the cup and talk to him as he eats it... works for me!

Ostrich jerky has never failed me. I buy the natural kind at the dog shows and I use it as bait in the show ring. My dogs go insane for it and it's the most amazing texture...very soft and never dries out. My dogs LOVE it!!

By the way, you don't always have to use a food treat for training. Some dogs perform and hold attention a lot better for a sqeaky toy etc. Give that a try as well. If you do, use a special toy that you only get out for training

LOL nope. He gets treats not only when we obedience train but as well as playing around in the yard. (I try and save the best for the obedience stuff though).ex. when we are out for a walk in the park he is on his longline to play. He will come up and heel and I will tell him good heel and he gets a treat,he will by himself come running and sit right in front of me, whereas we do a trick and he gets a treat. In the yard we just goof off and sometimes hide the treats (which he loves).

my problem is during distractions. oh and LOL im his grandma...helping my daughter who still lives at home raise him. He does though, because of her schedule spend alot of time with me.

You can usually find them at almost every pet supply store, like PetSmart and Petco.
