Is he motivated by toys or play? You don't HAVE to use food at all.

That said,
Hot Dogs
Bits of Cheese
Deli ham (I use this to wrap any medications)

Are deemed pretty irresistable around here.

(Also, the pet store near me used to carry samples of Natural Balance dog food rolls - I'd cut them up and use them in lieu of hot dogs. She loved them and they were a little less greasy on my hands. Haven't done that in a while, though.)

Also, if you work him before supper rather than after he'll be more likely to be interested in the treats. (Of course, remember to cut back the amount you feed if he's going through a lot of training treats. )

When I fed Delta kibble I would sometimes make her work for her entire supper. Hey, if it requires working for, it's inherently got to be better, right? :p
