I’m always looking for treats Mr. N will like because we go through them so quickly for training. I look for treats that are meaty, soft and easily breakable because Mr. N will (usually) only eat those kind of treats. The breakable part is for portion control and to make the bag go further.
I set them out to see which one Mr. N liked best (duck, beef, chicken). He ate them in the following order: beef liver, duck and then chicken. Which is about what I guessed. He likes eating animals bigger than him.
The beef liver ones are bigger and rectangular than the other ones. They’re also a little harder to break up than the duck and chicken but they’re all pretty breakable.
Mr. N is pretty sure putting treats in front of a dog and not letting him eat them is animal torture. He wants a lawyer.
As you get to the end of the bag, they do crumble a little bit but I find that happens to freeze dried treats in general. I save the crumbs and sprinkle them over Mr. N’s food as a treat.
I would keep in mind that both the beef liver and duck treats (which are made of duck liver. I didn’t realize this until later) are rich and should be fed in moderation.
Mr. N finds them very palatable and wants me to just hand them over already.

Next Monday (Oct. 6th), I’m co-hosting the Positive Pet Training Blog Hop with Cascadian Nomads
and Dachshund Nola
. The theme for October is Positive Training Fun with a Box! 101 things to do with a box
is a clicker and shaping game where you treat the dog for any interactions with the box and shape it into a useful (or not so useful) trick. All positive training stories are welcome in the hop.
