Hi everyone:

I have a question about treats for puppies. We use "Old Mother Hubbard" bits and my puppy is willing to sell her soul for them. However, I think they're a bit too big for her age as she needs a few seconds to eat a piece. We went to our first puppy class yesterday and the instructor had a jug full of treats that to me looked microscopic. However, when we started training they were pretty amazing and didn't distract her from training.

Can you recommend a good brand of tiny treats? I'm very careful about things to do with China because of the recalls, so wanted to check with forum folk.

Thanks!

We use hot dogs cut up into tiny little bits. Riley will literally do anything for a hot dog bit and it's never bothered her stomach. :)

I started using Zwikipeak cuisine (little bits of dried lamb), but all my dogs just love hot dogs and they are so easy to cut up into little tiny slices. Also little tiny pieces of cheese are good and dried beef jerky that comes frozen and I keep in the freezer and just slices like the hot dogs. Do try the hot dogs - they get my vote :)

We use Sprats. They are just dried white bait fish. They do smell but I think that is why they work so good. Also the fish is all natural and has omega oil so good for his coat. :)

Our pup doesn't like beef liver; we use peanut-butter-flavor treats or little pepperoni - smelling treats.

We use Pupford freeze dried chicken and freeze dried liver. They seem kind of pricy because he loves them so much we use a lot. We try to save them for when higher currency treats are needed. They are soft so they can eat them fast, but they have enough smell to keep his attention while in our hands.
