    Hey everyone, I have just been buying small treats from the store... but does anyone have good suggestions of treats to use for trick training that don't run out so fast? Thanks!

    Hi, here are a couple of good ones

    low calorie, can be used thawed or frozen and plenty in a packet so don't cost the earth to upkeep.

    These will keep you going for a while:D Be VERY careful of any shop bought treats. Do read the labels CAREFULLY, if they mention China, or you're not sure EXACTLY where ALL the ingredients come from, then DO NOT BUY!!!!!!

    You'll find a thread on this forum about the dangers of dog treats, what to avoid etc., so it's best to make your own then you know what's in the treats.

    I use hot dogs that are $1. Cut them up into small pieces.

    Whatever kind of treats you use, make sure to make the pieces very tiny so you don't run out too quickly and so your dog doesn't get too many treats.:) I like to use meat or cheese or hotdogs, they work really well.

    You can usually get about 100 treats per hot dog, and I've never met a dog that wouldn't eat a hot dog.
    An 8oz brick of cheddar(or other cheese) should give you a couple hundred treats.
    Dingo and Dasy are about 30lbs, their treats are about half to a third of the size of a pea.
    If I use Zukes Minis I break them into 3-4 pieces, the dogs dont care as long as it tastes/smells good.
