Default What to use for treats?

I have a 7 week old chi, and I would like to start teaching her some basic manners (clicker means, sit, easy stuff like that) but I can't find treats that motivate her! She's so easily distracted, and seems to have such a hard time eating anything.


What do you guys use for training your chis?

With training treats it's so important to find treats that your dogs likes. That way he or she is super excited about getting their treat after a command. I've used purebites freeze dried treats, also some yogurt treats from my local boutique, and also any kind of grain free cookies. I give them bullystic chews for dental health.

I was using Zukes . I have now switched to Bare Bites dehydrated beef liver. I love it, more importantly they do. It is easy to break into small little pieces to use for training.

Mine love shredded carrots. I buy a bag of them already shredded for my salads each week. This also provides a very cheap, low cal treat. They also love green beans and yellow squash.

Mine will do tricks for pocket fluff lol, but the highest value treats are usually cooked meat or cheese.

Odie's fave treats are usually meat. She really goes crazy especially for purebites chicken and you can break off little pieces.
