BEst puppy treats for training

My girl is 4 months old today and we have been working on basic puppy training such as sit, come, stay etc. She is coming along pretty well, but I think we could do a little better if I could find a treat she just dearly loves and must have. I know every Doberman is different, but I was wondering what brands, types etc. that you guys have had the most success with. I want what's best for my girl and that I why I'm asking the experts! Thanks so much for your help.

Dreizehn always liked hotdogs. I cut them into tiny pieces so I'd get about 50pieces from a single hot dog.

We use Zuke's Mini Naturals for Grizzly in the roasted chicken flavor. He loves them! I opened the bag yesterday and my husband said, "Oooh, something smells really good." I was like, "Dog treats. You want?" Grizzly would run a marathon for them! He likes them better than anything else. We like them because the ingredients are pretty much all natural!

I second the hot dogs! Brinks doesn't handle beef well so we use turkey hot dogs or turkey meatballs and she LOVES them! Also, freeze dried liver treats are a favorite. The only down side of those is that they are crunchy and tend to turn to powder easily.

i use Wagg, probably cant get them over the pond though, they are little bone shaped natural treats, but i break them in half so they are smaller.

Ive read hotdog a million times though and they are well cheap so id go with them, i am going to start doing some tracking with Caes when its not all wet and cold and i will probably use hotdog for that!

I use the Natural Balance dog food that comes in rolls (refrigerate after opening).
It's easily sliced and then cut into as small a piece as you want; you can break a chunk into smaller pieces with your fingers and yet it doesn't crumble excessively.
My dogs love it, and because it is designed to be eaten as a stand-alone dog food, I feel like it's at least fairly nutritious for them--better than most foods packaged as "dog treats", anyway.

For making Bacchus happy after a run I give him Zukes minis. He loves the chicken and it doesn't have corn in it. They are very small and clean. Plus when we run at Dream Park m'any times they will have a box of different flavors for the dogs for free. Can't beat free!

I use a variety since you want to keep them interested and not bored:
  • freeze dried liver cut into 1/2" squares (put them in a bag with something moist and then you can cut them the next day)
  • String cheese cut into thin cross-sections
  • Mini zukes (salmon)
  • Lakse Kronch
  • Ziwi Peak - buy the regular "Daily-Dog Cuisine food" - same as treats but cheaper
  • Charlee Bears
  • Costco's Yummy Chummies
  • Cooked Liver cut into thin slices (I freeze it in small bags)

I don't like hotdogs because of all the additives and that's also why I don't use the food logs. Anything moist that can stay unrefrigerated is out - I try to feed human grade food to my dogs

I need treats that are easy to swallow and easy to see on dirt or black mats

I use cooked chicken or turkey or cheese most of the time. When I buy treats they are Zuke's or Mighty Wolf.

Tons of good suggestions. I personally like to use boiled chicken as a high value treat - both of my dogs really love it. For Shanoa, I also use freeze dried green tripe, deli meat, cheese, basically anything she really likes. You have to figure out what your dog goes nuts for. Some dogs actually like play/toys more than treats...if that's your dog, you'll want to incorporate that as a reward.

You have some good advice, just wanted to add don't limit yourself to treats. For many dogs, a toy or something besides a treat is what's best.

Thanks so much for all of the great suggestions! Now I have a place to start. I had already bought 3 different kinds of training treats and although she likes them okay, it didn't make her go over the moon for them. I didn't want to keep wasting money and I also wanted something good for her. On another note, we had our first major success. She got in her crate on her own for the first time yesterday when I said crate up! I'm so proud.

Different treats work well for different dogs. Also, different locations. At home, Elka will work for carrots or cut up apple; on a walk, the ante needs to be upped to hot dogs, or cheese, or pepperoni (the turkey kind is lower fat).

I've used Charlee Bear treats (crunchy) the Natural Balance rolls, Fresh Pet (?) rolls, freeze dried liver, Pet Botanics treats, and lots of other little or easily broken up treats. If I'm going to be spitting treats, though, I only use stuff that I would eat myself, which means hot dogs and cheese. Ilka just LOVES string cheese. If I could only take it in the ring with me, she'd be a strong contender for HIT

Great advice. Some dogs are more food driven than others. My boy will cut backflips for a sliver of treat, my girl the ultimate reward is her red squeaky ball or a frisbee toss.

Skoll goes NUTS for hot dogs! Anything smelly and soft gets him drooling.

Thirding a response to not limit yourself to treats. While the only doberman in the family loves food, there are two other dogs (Mocha, Titan) who desire something else. Mocha's ultimate reward is a floppy toy that she can shake and "kill". Titan's is just the words "good boy" in a certain pitch.

I used Stella & Chewys, Bravo!, string cheese and tiny pieces of steak for Bronson.
He's never liked hot dogs. Pickiest dog ever

We use Vitial Essentials Freeze Dried Raw treats. I call it doggie crack. Our boys go crazy over this stuff.

I save "high value over the moon treats" for something very special (i.e. recall). Otherwise, they get treats they enjoy but I don't always give them "prime rib", etc. They have to learn to work for what I have. I use a variety and kibble is one thing they all learn to work for. We feed mostly raw, some kibble. I have low value kibble up to high value boiled chicken. most of the time they get middle of the road food rewards. I don't want a dog that ONLY works for the high value good stuff.
