Ive realized Alexis LOVES oyster crackers. Are they ok? She goes nuts for them and helps during training. They are unsalted

Crackers are made of white flour - which is made of wheat. I wouldn't feed them as a regular snack, but a couple every now and then shouldn't hurt him. :)

One of my dogs gets a red itchy belly when we give him wheat, so do keep an eye out for possible reactions.

If you dog likes them and doesn't itch, then they are a great treat! When it comes to treats, size matters!!!

I personally recommend cherios all the time.

As for the wheat thing, just because peanut allergies are common doesn't mean we should all avoid peanuts! If your pup does great, then GREAT for both of you!

Thank you :)

But she's not, really. It's just camera tricks and the help of black & white that make her look so good. There are many other dogs on here that out shine her, even when covered in cow poop. lol

Excellent post.

During the whole dog food/treat scare, I just started buying goldfish crackers and using them as treats. No issues with allergies for 3 of my dogs and they thought they were super cool getting little fishies for their snacks.

Cherios? that would be very cheap and easy. I'll have to give that a try...
Brodix usually gets a treat every time he comes inside when we call him :oops:

I hope you are giving small ones, then?
Our dogs only get treats when they go in their crates usually-- but since they could be in and out of crates on and off during the day, they get little bitty treats. Like a goldfish cracker. :)

Yeah, he gets about 2 or 3 a day. We were using the cheap "snaps" I think they're called. We recently changed to Evo.
Not real fond of them so far, I think their protein level is a little much....

Cheerios are a great treat idea! I'll have to see if they like them!
