Got Ruger some Old Mother Hubbards Meaties (to help with training) and Wellness Pure Rewards (for reg treats). He loves them and I like the fact that they don't have many unnecessary ingredients that he doesn't need. Wellness ones are a lil expensive, it's cool though. He's spoiled anyway.

I usually have a handful of kibble in whatever coat I'm wearing. I'll buy some more high value treats now and again but man... I get sick of smelling like tripe or fish. roflmao

I give chicken chips, bully sticks, and milk bones for treats. Rex loves Builly sticks but they are expensive to give everyday.

For training I use cooked Liver, cooked chicken, turkey hot dogs, mozzarella, string cheese or Natural Balance rolls.

For treats just to give the dog - like in the morning or before DH leaves for work;
I have used Mother Nature http://www.mothernaturepet.com/search/
for the past two years - but it's getting expensive

I found these at Sam's...I opened up the bag and it smelled like apples!
Dogs love it so we are trying these

A couple of people mentioned kibble and I was wondering if the more $$$ treats are better than high quality kibble. Kibble is a good size for training treats and the high quality stuff probably has better ingredients that a lot of treats, and you can buy a lot for cheap.

Has anyone tried this? We are giving it a go with Huckabee. We bought a bunch of small bags of different brands of grain free kibbles. So far so good.

Onions are toxic for dogs!!

i also use the natural balance deli rolls cut up into bite-size pieces. i seriously think they might do backflips through flaming hoops for those things. newman's own brand organic dog treats are a big hit too.

For training I try to find treats that are single source protein, grain-free, and with few ingrediants (idealy just one) e.g. "Wildside Salmon" dehydrated salmon cubes. Or "Pure Bites" dehydrated chicken and beef treats.
