That's a great option. But you will find, if you are serious about training, that you need a variety of DIFFERENT treat foods to keep up their enthusiasm.

I love your choices for training treats, Tammy. I wouldn't let anyone feed Kodi Pupperoni for ANY reason. Have you read the ingredients?!?! If you can't pronounce it, your dog probably shouldn't be eating it. (same goes for us humans!)

Just ordered the ZiwiPeak Lamb Jerky at your recommendation, Tillie's Mom though I'm a little fearful about giving jerky to Raider until he's a tad older in case it's a choking hazard, I know Isabella will live it.

Raider starts puppy K training on Tuesday . . .the ground beef might be good bet for him. Are you just browning it?

Propylene Glycol – A colorless viscous hygroscopic liquid, CH3CHOHCH2OH, used in antifreeze solutions, in hydraulic fluids, and as a solvent.
one of the most toxic substances for dogs is antifreeze. Beware parking lots, where cars can leak antifreeze. Dogs like the taste of it ,which makes it worse. Scary ****.

Ziwi Peaks is nothing like typical chicken or beef jerky. You can EASILY break it into TINY bits with your fingers (even to crumbles). So there is really no choking hazard, even fora young puppy.

Boiled chicken would be easier to handle for training treats than ground beef, unless your dog has a chicken allergy. (which is why Tammy uses the geound beef for Tillie)

ha ha ha, you need to go back and re read my post! lol I said she would do anything for pupperoni ... NOT that she GETS the pupperoni! 2 or 3 times she got a scrap that happened to come her way. The trainer uses my treats for Tillie.

the ziwi peak 'jerky' is actually really crumbly, you can easily break it into peices. I have tried the Wellness Jerky and that stuff is TOUGH! The ziwi peak should be fine for Raider, I would think... they have other varieties besides the lamb also.

They have a whole line of foods and are excellent quality.
