I'm always encouraged to up my treat game. And I try, but I don't want to feed them junk, and I feel like I'm failing. I found freeze dried minnows (disgusting, but the dogs liked them) but of course when I went back to get more they didn't have any. Not to mention that they're 10 dollars an ounce. So I bought freeze dried salmon and freeze dried chicken hearts. The chicken hearts especially were a hit. But they're huge and they don't break or tear or cut so they're not really great training treats. The salmon is the same. I can cut it, but then it's all crumbly and no one loves running their dogs with crumbs left in the ring. I make my own treats and they like them, but they're not that exciting. Most of the commercial treats are okay, but nothing to do back flips over. They like a turkey hot dog, and string cheese. But the make my fingers gross. I bet you money that pupperoni would be the most amazing thing in the world. I just don't want to go there. I feel like I've tried all the healthy treats and there's nothing that makes them crazy. I see other people feeding their dogs meatballs and hot dogs (not the healthy ones.) Any other suggestions for treats that the dogs would do anything for? And maybe my dogs just aren't that food motivated. I feel like there is an advantage to a dog who gets really excited about a treat.
