Oh, wow, what gas. My Duffy naps at my feet and when he is asleep, yikes, does he let loose with some stinkers.

:yuck:

I am feeding him Purina One Healthy Puppy food and he gets pupperoni bits as rewards when I'm training. I'd say by the end of the day he has had the equivalent of one stick, but he gets tiny bits at a time.

If its normal, I'll live with it, but I'm wondering if he has a tummyache from something.

Ok, that's good to know about the pupperoni!

I like them because I can carry a stick in my pocket and break off a tiny nibble whenever he does something to be rewarded. But the trade off, being gas, yuck.

Can you give me suggestions of a better product to use for this purpose? I prefer something that I can break off of a large piece rather than carrying around a bunch of tiny nuggets.

Thanks!
Kris

We buy the Milk Bones made for puppies and don't seem to have a problem with them. We usually break them in half for a treat when he is being praised.

String cheese is great, and one of our favorites is "hot dog chips". Slice hot dogs into fairly thin circles (you can even 1/2 or 1/4 the circles...), spread on a baking sheet and bake on a low oven 250-300 or so) until somewhat dried up. You can make a lot of them for cheap, and we freeze them in zip lock bags. It's easy to keep a few in your pocket.
We also use venison hunter sausage (which we steal it from my DH when he has it made :curtain:) - you can use it like you do the pupperonis but it is lean and hasn't caused gas in my dogs.

Yes, nix the pupperonies. It could be the food. Riley had really bad gas and horrible breath. To my horror I discovered why.....she was getting into the (covered) litter boxes. Now they are gated off. No more gas or bad breath.

I use the Wellness treats for training. And I cut one square into 12 pieces.

It's just a fact of life here. I think I've deciphered what is so offensive about the gases that eke out of Max's behind - it reminds me of skunk. Ugh. So I feel your pain yes I do.

There are far better treats than Pupperoni's. Most high-quality dog food companies have high-quality snacks available too.

I prefer the California Natural biscuits.
