For our puppy classes, our instructer wants us to bring treat that are small and eaten very quickly. Nothing that needs alot of chewing and something that you can carry in your pockets. What are your favorites?
Thanks guys! =) Gunny...are the rolls wet, or could I cut them up and keep them in my pocket without them getting too squishy? I want a few things to pick up and try this weekend to see what she really goes for. I'm sure she will eat anything...just looking for one she absolutely can't resist.
If your buying at the grocery store, Alpo has grilled bits that are soft and easy to break into teeny peices. But more nutritious are the Natual Balance Rolls, they look like a piece of baloney and you can cut them up into tiny cubes and bring them in a little bag. I just bought one today and layla went NUTS over it. Got it at Petco.
natural balanvce is similar to salami. it is actuall one of the most healthy treats i give my dogs. it comes in a salami roll. so you have to cut them. but a lg roll. is about 9.00 and last my 3 dogs 2 mos. were talking about. 200lbs of dog. they are moist and soft. i would not put them in my pocket i would a buy a treat bag that clips to my belt. or waist of my pants. the biggest problem i have with them is keeping other dogs from begging for a treat. someone here might know the web address for them.
Duncan was never a big fan of store treats so I saw a "receipe" for home treats. It is super, super simple. Cut up hot dogs into tiny pieces and then microwave them for like 2-3 minutes (may vary because of microwave). They become cruchy little pieces of dried up hot dog. He goes nuts for them. I only make like one hot dog at a time. But they stay fine for a week or so. You can refrigerate too if you want in a ziploc when not training.
Get one of those treat bags, they sell them at Petco and they just attacked to your pants. I've been using it at my class (I'm the only one) and I see people opening and closing and opening and closing their little ziploc bags of treats. I was also at PetQuarters one day, and their was a puppy class starting so I read the phamplet and one of the requirements was one of those treat bags. I've been using the Alpo soft treats, you could use cheese, meat, hotdogs, NB rolls, anything your dog likes!
