I use this sausage-like roll by Natural balance. They seem pricey, but you can cut it up in as small of pieces as you need and it is pretty healthy. Also, that Old Mother Hubbard makes little tiny treats that are really yummy (to my dogs, not me) and they sell them in bulk at some stores for about 1.25 a pound.

cool yeah for training treats I usually give her solid gold turkey jerky I cut them up into small bite size treats.

its hard for me to find a good dog biscuit for her, the best I found was Candiade(sp) but she didn't like the dog food to much so who knows if she'll like the treat. I've been giving her science diet traets she eats those but I'm not to sure how good they are for her. oh and I also give her those KONG treats when she plays with her KONG.

I can buy the Wellness treats in bulk at a local store, whole bag costs a couple bucks.

Definitely Benny Bullys....freeze dried liver. Most dogs go nuts for this stuff, best used when training because you can break them up into really small peices. As for plain old cookies, I always try to buy different ones, usually all natural ones from specialty petfood stores (he has these new ones with Salmon and Wildrice flavor), and of course he gets the occasional Milkbone...can't go wrong with those!

These are Bella's favorites (1lb. rolls cut up into small pieces.) I think they're a pretty good price when you consider that some people pay the same for a 6oz. bag of Pupperonis or a similar treat.

Rollover treats. They work great. Small and moist and easy for training.

I also use the Canidae snap biscuits...the dogs love them!

I second the Benny Bully's recommendation, it's like puppy crack.
It is also good because you can break it into tiny little pieces for training.

All of my pockets are filled with Benny Bully dust and it seems like every dog I meet immediately becomes obsessed with getting at that area of my clothes. It's pretty funny, their owners stare at me like "what the hell do you have in there?"

I make all of my own dog treats with rice flour because my dogs are allergic to wheat and grains. I dehydrate all different kinds of liver too. My dogs love them and they only cost me pennies to make a whole bunch.

Dunno about how healthy they are, but the only store-bought treat my snooty Midnight will eat are the bil-jac liver ones.
