Default Incredibly delicious treat...

Is there one?

Is there a treat that is just so irresistably delicious that a chi will be instantly distracted and get that feel good feeling.

Poppy is so terrified of other dogs that when we are out walking, if she meets another dog (we meet loads) she skits around my feet and starts barking like nuts - I would love to be able to give her something that distracts her - but it needs to be easy to give seeing as I have to bend down to six inches off the ground to get to her mouth, something that gives her an instant "hit" of deliciousness.

I was thinking something that had a syrupy consistancy so it's instant - rather that something she has to chew..... any suggestions?

Does she like peanut butter? Kalisee loves it. I do not give it to her very often but I know that she cannot resist it when she sees me "finally!!" taking a bit out to give her.

I do not know how well that will work though for you to give Poppy something like that to distract her. If she is overwhelmed by another dog I hope you can find something that works.

Kalisee will just sit there with a snarl on her face, motionless. She hates meeting with other dogs.

That was the first thing that came to my mind! I think it's natural balance that makes a meat roll. My DIL cuts it up and uses it or treats. Cheese is a good one as is freeze dried liver treats.

Angel is so food motivated that I could use his kibble! Then I have Susie, our golden, who isn't interested in ANYTHING if she is upset or excited!

I make Midgie dehydrated beef liver & she goes nuts for it. Since it's a jerky, it would be easy to keep in your pocket & you could just drop it in front of her so you wouldn't have to bend down.

Pet munchies dehydrated chicken strips mine will do absolutely anything for, break one piece up into smaller bits so she can eat instantly, roast chicken also does the job but more messy to put in your pocket

When I'm training for obedience and want real close attention I make "doggie crack". I don't make or give it often as I want it to stay an unusual treat that makes them do backflips to get.

I buy chicken livers and hearts and bake them in the oven with a little garlic salt sprinkled over them until done. Then I cut into small pieces and toss in a baggie with not quite an equal amount of fresh grated parm cheese (or other finely grated cheese, no big cheese pieces, you want the cheese to stick to the liver).

If I'm dealing with a small dog I don't bend down to feed it, I just drop it. They love it so much that once they realize what is falling from the sky their attention shifts up to me and they start to ignore whatever else is around. You could try to change your pup's attitude towards other dogs by not waiting until she is wrapped around your feet to treat but start to treat when she sees another dog and before she reacts. That way she starts to associate other dogs with yummyness falling from the sky.

My chis and cats all go crazy for this! They will do anything (even Huly will sit for these lol) and can never get enough

PureBites® Freeze Dried Cheddar Cheese Treats

The chis also go nuts for these:

Chicken Bits [899883000319] - $0.00 : Boulder Dog Food Company

I use chicken a lot as it is one of the only proteins Huly can have and they share at times. Plus it is a different protein for the Chis since their food is ZP Venison or lamb and Stella and Chewy Beef.
