Treat Recommendations

There is no "best" dog treat. But these are the ones that I find the most success with. Don't see this as complete list, or "must haves" but instead as a jumping off point to establish your treat hierarchy.


Please note; some of these treats are made with all-healthy ingredients, some are not. In this summary I am making no judgements based on the healthiness of any product, only on my experience of how effective they are in motivating your dog to train. They are all treats I feel comfortable feeding my dog but please read ingredient labels before using and speak to your vet if you have any concerns.


I choose treats that are either very small or easy to break up. Remember when treating your dog, a little goes a long way and I will routinely break treats up to a half pea size, especially for the less healthy treats eg. Wagg's & Adventuros.

AND WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING?


A great treat pouch. My favourite, as always, the trust Dog Gone Good. Mix up a selection of treats in the bag (variety is the spice of life) and as long as you're wearing it you're ready to train.
