Best Dog Training Treats?

Hi All,

Bentley is starting his first puppy class today! I am curious as to which dog treat would be best to train him with. I do train him at home and teach him tricks but sometimes he gets too excited and swallows them whole and chokes when going onto the next trick. I heard moist dog treats are better at going down and are breakable to get more treats out of a single treat.

I was thinking liver treats and breaking them into the pieces.

Any suggestions? Don't want him to keel over during training from a dog treat stuck in his throat! (kidding of course I would never let that happen to my baby!)

We use the liver treats (in small pieces). And the dried out lungs.
Both are pretty dry so make sure there is water around.

Liver, great idea, but get ready for some runny stools if you feed too much at once. ;D

Whole liver cubes are too rich and you'll go through a bag like in one session.
What I did was, pinch just enough for the boy to lick my finger tips. That way a treat lasted a long time.

Anyhow, a training session is short, usually 10 min/day every day will yield amazing results.

Re: Best Dog Training Treats?

Thanks guys! and thanks for the warning about the liver treats and some stools

I normally only do about 10 minutes training sessions, however this dog training class is an hour.

Wish me luck on keeping my V's attention for that long! He definitely has ADD!

Dried lung is hard to pinch, need a hammer or a dumbbell to bring them down to size :-\

Dried fish ;D and recall will be 100%.

Re: Best Dog Training Treats?

We found that our boy's kibble was a good treat to start out with but he lost interest pretty quickly when he realized it wasn't anything special :P

We love Zukes for training. They're made in the USA and are small moist treats that have worked really well for us. We've used the rabbit formula and our boy has always seemed to love it. It gives off a nice scent too which helps keep our boy interested in the treat and focused on us instead of the other dogs in the class. We've also used the Blue Buffalo Blue Bits for training but found that they caused our boy to be a little gassy
