Training Treats

With all the recent food & treat recalls, I thought it might be interesting to ask everyone what they use for treats. My treats have been human grade for many years and are normally prepared on Saturdays.

I have finished preparing the training treats for the week In addition to the stand by string cheese and the cheese balls kept by the back door for getting fuzzy butts quickly inside when called, this weeks menu is:

-> Mother Goose Liverwurst
-> Roast Beef
-> Turkey
-> Deli made cheese ends

All but the liverwurst can go safely into my mouth

I use zukes treats, when I can get them on sale for 11 dollars two bags.
String cheese, Pieces of hot dog, small carrots.

Latley I have just been using his regular kibble since hurricane sandy took our power and many of his treats went bad.

Peanut butter flavored Cheerios. I've been using it for about 3 months. It's the only thing she hasn't tired of, they're small enough so she don't have to chew them, they stay fresh for a long time, and all I have to do is grab a handful and go.

$2.99 per box.

I also mix in other things to change it up, but she prefers the Cheerios.

That's a great idea. I give our dogs dried liver and Yummy Chummie treats.

Our standbys are Charlie Bears liver and cranberry flavor and string cheese. For more high value we use Little Guberlicious peanut butter and liver treats or Pet Botanics salmon treats (the ones made in U.S.). For even higher value we use pieces of cut up chicken or whatever else the humans have in the refrigerator. Hopefully none of the prepared treats are "bad" for Zoe.

We use Zukes. I believe they are Salmon flavored. Max loves them. But they have a terrible odor--at least to humans.

I use the blue buffalo wilderness salmon treats (which she absolutely loves) and colby cheese. What I do like about the treats is that they are somewhat moist and my fingers smell of it so she follows my hand with or without the treats and it ends up she is happy with a good lick of my hand and a good girl rub on her chest.
