I like to use a variety of treats each week for nosework to keep things interesting and high value. My dogs like cheese, of course...string cheese is easiest, because it's easy to cut into tiny pieces, but most cheese is just fine, depending on what your dogs like. For nosework especially I make sure my treats aren't crumbly or messy because I don't want to contaminate the search area.
I also often use cooked chicken breast the I cut into cubes, or you can go to the deli at the grocery store and ask for sliced turkey or chicken - have them cut it very thick so that you can cube it easily.
My dogs also really like "tuna fudge" which is easy to make and cheap.
Tuna Fudge for dogs:
(2) 6 oz cans undrained tuna (or salmon or mackerel)
1 and1/2 cups of flour
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Mix all that greatness together, then press it into a greased 9×13″ pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Let cool. Cut into strips, then dice. Makes approximately one ton of treats. Give or take. Refrigerate or freeze treats.
I also use some "Pyramid Pan" dog treat recipes, if you want to buy one of those...you can google that. One of those pans is about $10 on Amazon and treats are super easy to make.
