I popped into Pets at Home today to get some more of the James Wellbeloved crackerjacks that Dexter loves & he used with the breeder. While I was there I had a wander around looking at everything else & got myself bemused at the treats available. I tried Dexter with Coachies puppy treats at the weekend but they made him a bit 'runny' as it were.

He has his Kong but gets fed up as he can't seem to get anything out so I have to sit there squeezing out the treats & soft cheese !!!

Any other suggestions ?

As Biscuit is on a raw diet I find this a challenge as I want to keep the treats as natural as possible so tend to use good quality kibble, which lasts a while too. To buy a 1kg bag works out so much cheaper than the smaller packs of treats and I just keep a small handful in various coat pockets. I also buy liver treats and will sometimes give small pieces of cheddar or cooked meats such as sausage. He loves carrot, apple, blueberries and other fruits too. You are right though that there is a lot of choice!

Bertie has the cracker jacks too and loves them. Have you tried Dexter on carrots? Bertie munches on a carrot or two but they don't really last him that long, unless he decides he's going to play with it first and runs out into the garden with it - silly monkey that he is! I also sometimes get his toy box - I know a dog with a toy box - and sprinkle his dried dog food in it and then he has great fun finding the kibble, tipping the box over after a while so all the toys fall out and then he goes rummaging around them for his food.

These are great and have a high meat content. We use these treats for training, when walking to heal and in Lolly's treat ball along with food when we are leaving her for a period of time. They are soft so we break them in half.

Lolly also gets small pieces of cheese, sausage and cooked chicken but i find it really handy to have the bought treats as they are quick and easy to fill the treat bag with when we are heading out of the door and I don't have to remember to put the treat bag in the fridge afterwards like I do with the fresh products (and always forget!)

Depending on what we want Arthur to do depends on the treat! At the moment he can get very distracted on recall when were out, so I have bought some venison 'hearty bites' which he adores an break small pieces off when he comes back.

The site is really good and has been recommended on here before which is where I got it from! The stag antlers and ears are good as well.

Jeanie - how coincidental !
I just remember the breeder being really clear about how easy their tummies get upset.

We use quite a few different ones, but do really like Harringtons and Pero Organic - both available from Waitrose (our nearest supermarket).

We also use 'Pet Bakery - Luxury Doggie Bag' biscuits from our local healthy food supplier PK's Pets (Paula Kent) in Church Crookham.

A lot of the treats (not the three listed above) have 'meat and animal derivatives' in them (as does a lot of the food) - and while I don't mind it occasionally, I don't like to use them too much as the 'animal derivatives' bit is not very specific and makes me unsure what our dogs are eating.

Hattie wnt MAD for Pets at Home frankfurter so much so that I had to stop using it for a while as she would not concentrate however as a high value treat for recall they did the trick. Like the idea of the venison treats though.
