bits of fruit?veg?

If it is for training I give small biscuits that I buy in the pet shop, they are usually called training treats. We give our too a bonio or dentastick after their long walk. If they havent had a walk then they dont get a treat because they can put on weight easily. Sometimes John gives them bits of cheese on their walk if they behave and the odd time I give them some cooked chicken in their dinner. They love this!! Sam crys when he smells the chicken haha!

Hi Sam

I would reccommend Barker and Barker little liver treats.

I mostly give my guys kibble for treats (because I like to give them a lot) but for high value treats I will used dried liver/salmon/chicken cut up very tiny.

i use home made liver biscuts as high value and kibble for low value but i either leave it in a bag with sausage so it soaks up the aroma and taste or fry it (no oil) in a little garlic to give it a little extra taste xx

I use dried carrots from Burns and Neem sticks which are tree bark and neem seed. I sometimes make them liver treats. People think I am mean with the treats but they don't know anything different...Molly will also eat baby carrots and corn :D

Our two will eat brocolli, small bits of carrot as well as small dog biscuits, that I break in half.

Onions are toxic to dogs so I'd imagine garlic is too. I may be wrong but I'd never take the chance ;)

I mostly use kibble as treats. For high value treats when doing recall and things like that I use tiny cubes of cheese.

As far as I know they would have to eat a hell of a lot of he stuff to be ill-im talking the tiniest of amounts and its only the flavour that becomes absorbed; the actual garlic is still dry in the pan afterwards but yes its personal preference and in no way would I want to be responsible for anyones dog becoming ill.
