    Default Treats

    Hi everyone

    What treats do you recommend for training a puppy?? We are currently using the Pal puppy treats but Sookie seems to hate them lol won't have a bar of them and doesn't get too excited when I've got them in my hand. Plus she spits them out and doesn't eat them.

    Any suggestions???

    Thanks in Advance

    Don't give treats a pat on the head or a play in the yard is better anyway.

    I use the cooked meat from soup mixed with random veges in the fridge with a food blender. Ends up looking like dog food... but I roughly cut them into tiny pieces and use those as treats.

    I think as puppies if they're driven by food, then easier to teach your pup things... but be sure to ween them off treats and slowly let a pat suffice.

    Your pup may not be food driven.
    Some respond better with praise (pats, excited voices etc)
    Some respond better with toys.

    As a pup mine was totally toy driven, he would ignore treats but go mental over a squeeky toy so that was his reward. He only ever got this particular squeeky toy if he followed a command or peed in the right spot etc.

    I buy one lamb's fry, raw for $2.50........I put it in a casserole dish with lid into our microwave on the back verandah ( no smell inside) and cook it on high for 12 minutes (750watt).
    I let the liver stand on a paper-towel and cut in small pieces.
    Makes lots of awesome rubbery treats that all the dogs I train with love. If I have dogs in Beginner Class that won't eat their owners treats, they always go for mine. I keep any I do not use immediately in the freezer

    If food driven then bits of chook, savs, cheese, snags, whatever is in the fridge. Some dogs respond better with a play with toys, throwing a ball.
