Skipper is nine weeks old today and I've already started charging a clicker with him but he quickly loses interest in the puppy coaches I've been giving him :o/

I was just wondering if anyone had some great recipes or ideas for really great puppy treats that he will love?

He's a very good eater and loves food but I think most puppy treats that you can buy are too similar to kibble.

Thanks guys puppy

Fish4Dogs Super Stars treats are suitable for puppies and have a nice fishy smell to them that might hold Skipper's interest longer than the coachies.

Or you could make your own treats, of course.

We used Zuke's Mini Naturals for puppy training treats. When we didn't have any of the Zuke's, we used plain Cheerios. They loved them!

I use Tillman treats with my current dog, and will be trying them on my puppy!

I like the Wellness Puppy treats. They're nice and soft and great for puppies.

Thanks guys,

I'm going shopping today so I'll look for everything you've suggested puppy

The breeder also sent me a great recipe that apparently puppies love, so I'm going to try that too.

Thanks again!

Our Mika was a picky little thing,we literally tried $100's woth of treats and she disliked all of the ones that were hard like kibble,we just resorted to using small slices of chicken franks or pieces of leftover roasted meat cut into tiny pieces for training her because they were the only treats she would actually eat.wishes Skipper by the way is a cutie pie!!!!!cloud 9

fresh carrots, fennel stalks and apple slices. for the clicker, just cut baby carrots into little medallions. I find that veggies are much cheaper than dog biscuits unless you're going for milkbones. Most dogs love little baby carrots especially. They're crunchy, nutritious, cheap, and they're really good for teething. I you could get a regular sized carrot, peel it, blanche it and freeze it, then give it to your pup as a teether.
