Training Treats

Treats used for training should be small, moist and smelly!  A small amount goes a long way; for most dogs a pea size works great. The fewer ingredients the better and most of them should be easily recognizable.

It is important to know your dogs treat preferences in a general order of value. Avoid using things at the top of list when food of lesser value will do but don’t be stingy when it counts!  When practicing recalls and counter classical conditioning  you should use the highest of  value for your animal.

Some treats I commonly use are ( usually cut smaller!) click below for links!

You can use anything your dog likes! ( Including their kibble!)  I will often make my own treats at home out of raw or cooked meats.
