Q: Good, Healthy training treats.

September 22, 2008 | By ArayaNexus | 7 answers | Expired: 2205 days ago

Cricket is a new addition to our little menagerie, and we're looking for some good, healthy treats to use for training. Right now we're using her kibble, though she loses interest in them fairly quickly.

Any suggestions/favorites/recipes?

Have you tried carrots and other healthy foods you might have right in your refridgerator? If you would rather give actual treats, i would lean towards and all natural healthy ingredient based food.

I recently heard of Rachel Ray's treats called Nutrish. I found them at Walmart, Im sure most stores carry them. They have very healthy ingredients and proceeds go to animal shelters across the U.S.

I also have found that using dog food samples that have meat as it's first ingredient work GREATĀ” I requested some dog food samples from zootoo once and used them as treats and my dog loved themĀ”

Lots of people including me use carrots. I either cut up a large one into coins or use half a baby carrot. My dogs love'em.

We use and my dog loves the vitakraft chocomilk drops. They are small enough that you dont have to worry about giving too much when you are practising the same thing over and over. They have vitamins for you dog, and your dog will love them!

My tainer recommended Natural Balance Lamb or Beef Formula rolls to use with in training my lab, and boy are they great!!! Piper will do just about anything for them. They are actually sold as rolls of petfood that you can feed your dog in addition to or in place of standard wet/dry food. I slice the "sausage" into pieces and then cut each piece into tiny bits - one slice gives you about 8 treats! They're incredibly affordable - only $3 a roll or so - and you can find them at PetCo. Petsmart also has a comparable brand, although I don't remember what it's called. They don't cause stomach upset at all, don't have articifical additives, and every dog I've met LOVES them. Hope this helps! Good luck!!!
