    I got a bunch of free samples from a pet expo last fall. I think they are very useful for luring. I used it to teach Shiloh paws up, and a few other tricks. Shiloh LOvEs it! If it was a bit cheaper, I would definitely buy some more!

    Yeah it does seem a little pricy but I go thru so many treats, it seems like it would be a lot easier.

    We sometimes use tubes of soft cheese, we have to buy suitable flavours (no chives, and the ham is too salty), but we can buy it in cheaper shops, the dogs love it, it's fit for human consumption (well before the dog licked it anyway)... it might be worth checking whether you can get something like this as a cheaper alternative.

    Apparently they dont sell these in Canada. The ingredients look great too!

    I've never been able to find the squeeze tubes of cheese, but I have used pate and Kong Stuffin'

    I use tube cheese for Zara when we are trying to teach her to give after fetching.
    Did this with Bella too.
    Also helps with Zara's snatching problem as she has nothing to snatch only to lick.

    Thanks those are all great ideas. What I especially liked about the lickety stik was that it is very low in calories. The vet told me Levi is a little over weight and to try and cut back on his food intake some. With all the training we do, he gets so many "treats". I have been mainly using his dog food for treats. It works fine except when I go to feed Xena dinner, and he doesn't get anything cuz he's eaten it all during training.... he gets upset that he's not getting a bowl of food too.

    Levi ... if you have someone else in the house .. I get the hubby to take one dog out for a pee so I can feed the other one when something like that happens
  11. LeviTheOutlaw Well-Known Member

    Yeah a lot of the time I'm the only person and Xena will not eat unless I'm there with her.

    I usually give her a bowl of food and then give Levi a small amount of food in one of those doggie puzzles. It takes him awhile to get the small amount and she gets to enjoy her dinner in peace. lol

    That Lickety stick looks so clever! Brilliant! This could make a great change up for my dog's treats! My dog finds having his treats/rewards changed up now and then more interesting.

    I make almost all his treats, homemade from scratch, doesn't take any longer than baking a batch of cookies every few weeks, and my recipe is all healthy, and economical and my dog loves it. I keep his treats raisen-sized to help reduce fullness.
    but that stick would make a fine change up for him!! thanks!!!

    It IS a clever idea!!!!!!:) I'll stick with my regular treats though. It's kinda big....:ROFLMAO: I'm more old fashioned.

    I bought some today and brought it to my folks house. It's a hit with all 5 dogs!!!

    I just mostly use their dog food, or hot dogs, if they're going to be working in a distracting environment.
