I started with Wellness Wellbites but they were really smelly, like open up the bag and gag smelly. Also pretty expensive. I use turkey hot dogs, chopped up into small-medium sized pieces now. She loves the hot dogs!
For training I have found best the big biscuit in the shape of a bone it is quite hard to break so it is very challenging for Saigey to obey I use that when he is in a position for the judge to see and at training.
And as treats the loves green packet friskies sticks 3 in a pack, and loose dried sausages small.
Everytime we open the closet that has the dog supplies, Charlie will be right behind you sitting. He's knows! At lunch, he knows that I'm gettin a cheese stick to finish eating and he's right on your tail. He loves peanut butter to. He gets a small piece of cheese, usually one treat or cookie as we call em, and maybe a tad of peanut butter. He's spoiled rotten!
Well, I'm not much help here cos I bake my own cookies for the dogs...Samson is on a diet, so he only gets venison...But when I bought treats, he always prefered the softer ones. When we went to obedience class, I looked for treats that were small, or that I could break up easily...Taste wise, other than venison, anything bacon flavored. Authority makes some great training treats that I used and Samson loved those...
