I like these little soft liver treats at Petsmart, they are cheap and full of nutrition. They are called Authority Liver Treats for Dogs. They have 25% protein in them so they are great for puppies, they are small, about marble sized, but I broke them in half for Jose when he was smaller and he was able to eat them. I also like the Petsmart brand Training Treats, they are soft little chicken breast shaped treats, perfect size for pups, they are smaller than a dime, and pretty cheap for a can of them.

How old is your puppy?

I was at a pet store today (a chain called Petcetera) and I spoke to a dog nutrition specialist about what he recommended as treats for young puppy chis. He said that did not recommend buying any packaged treats as they are too high in salt content. He told me that it would be a good idea to buy turkey or chicken weiners/sausages (not the pre-packaged kind, the fresh kind in the meat department of a grocery store), heat them up, cut them up into little pieces, and keep them in a container to use them as treats. I think it is a great (and not to mention, inexpensive) idea so I'm definately going to try it.

I still think this would be high in sodium as they usually use salt to cure many types of meat for processing.

The baby food weiners in a jar may be good not too salty. They are like baby's first foods something like that!
