Default What treats?

Hi, just wondered what treats work for your chi? I haven't found anything to motivate my 9 wk Binky, lol...she'd rather snooze in the sun!! She's very fussy with food anyway so am also worried about filling her up with treats so she won't eat her meals - I did think about using her 'proper' food as treats, chicken etc.? Any advice? X

I've never had a fussy dog when it comes to treats, but giving 'real' food like chicken is always very successful in my experience. Lilo goes NUTS with things like watermelon. I can get her to do pretty much anything for a tiny piece. I'd say try out a few 'real' foods that dogs can eat and figure out what Binky really loves. As for filling her up before meals, I give Lilo very tiny pieces when training her.

I'm a mean ole Mama. I don't offer treats. If you have tummy troubles, and you are giving food, treats, etc, it's very hard to narrow down the problem. My pups don't seem bothered at all with no treats. Bully sticks are good for cleaning teeth, and most all dogs love them. So that would be my suggestion. Or just use their food as a treat.

We tried the treat thing for awhile, but all 4 of my pups had HGE. This was about 3 years ago. After that, treats scare me. My boy has IBD after all of that, and they all have sensitive tummies, so we play it safe with simple. I'm a terrible Chi Mama.

I buy treats on occasion, but mostly I make them. And I make them thin and small! They feel they are getting a "treat" but not all the calories that come with the big commercially made ones. When I say thin, I mean thin- as in dime thin! haha!

Dehydrated chicken is good, also sweet potato! I like those! hehehe
