Packaged Store Treats:
In general softer treats are better for training, since they can be eaten quickly and broken into smaller pieces for multiple training repetitions. Later, once dogs have learned new behaviors, you can also give them harder types of treats as well.
- Buddy Softies
- Blue Buffalo
- Fruitables (both their soft and harder treats can be broken into smaller pieces)
- Newman’s Own – beef jerky
- Nutro (their hard treats work well and can be broken into smaller pieces)
- Cloud Star – Tricky Trainers
- And similar kinds
If dogs eat kibbles for meals, you can also use some of these mixed with treats.
For higher value treats use:
Hot dogs, cheese, meat (plain without salt/additives) such as hamburger, turkey, chicken, steak, ham, etc.
Some dogs enjoy other treats such as carrots or cheerios.
You can also check with your veterinarian for ideal types and amounts of each food/treat to allow your dog to consume.
Cat Training Treats:
- Bonito flakes
- Canned food – you can use a spoon to let cats lick a few times as a reward for correct behavior
- Packaged cat treats
- Cats also enjoy some of the Fig&Tyler freeze dried treats – see the link above (our cats have tried and like the chicken breast, turkey, and pacific rockfish treats) – just like for dogs, the treats can be broken into smaller pieces.
- Fresh meat treats – chicken, hamburger, turkey, etc. (with no salt or seasoning).
