  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    So i got my chihuahua/rat terrier mix a week and a half ago. He's starting to improve in the potty training area, so I decided it's time to teach him to sit. I have watched several videos, but they dont help. My dog just doesn't seem to care enough about treats to keep him attentive and...

    Question: What do you guys feed your dogs while hiking? I've noticed my dog doesn't seem as interested in his dog food while hiking but of course he needs the sufficient nutrients and energy replenishment. Does anyone have any homemade treats that are high packed in calories and energy?

    Hi, New member here. We have a new Schnoodle puppy who has joined our family. She's 8 weeks old and her name is Pepper. We also have a 3 1/2 year old mini Aussie named Joey who is reasonably well trained with the clicker. This is a first for me; owning two dogs and I hope to have a few...

    Since coming home Trucker has been slowing creeping up in weight, currently I am not worried about where he is at (a solid 61.2lbs) but if it continues it will be of a concern. We do quite a bit of training on commands every day, he loves it, I love it, it builds our bond. But about 50 % of the...

    I recently adopted my Trucker, a Redbone Coonhound, and was told that I should feed him grain-free food and treats as much as possible to avoid yeast infections in his ears. I haven't found a ton of Grain-Free treats and I am currently feeding him Simple Grain-Free food. Does anyone have...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have an 8 month old malti poo, and we have had him for about 3 weeks. He doesn't seem to be responding to treats, and we have tried a few different kinds. I don't want to give him chicken or turkey at the moment because of some poop problems, but I'm not sure how to train him. I was going to...

    I fear that I spoiled my Gidget by giving her treats like bits of cheese or weiners, or left-overs from my plate. Now she won't eat her food. She begs for mine. She will eat the cat's canned food, but not the dry. I have stopped providing the treats to her but she still does not eat her own...

    Hello! About four months ago we acquired a rescue that has many sensitivities to common ingredients found in foods. Since day one his stools have been soft. Fast forward four months, and we have since determined that he has sensitivities to chicken, turkey, duck and lamb. We finished...

    I have a pet treat business and will soon be doing my first AKC show. Since I'll be adding dried liver to my line as well as liver treats, what package size is popular and what is the average price? I don't want to over (or under) price my treats! Thanks!
  13. Dog Shows
    HI! New to the forum and learning my way around the site. I have a small business baking dog treats (not selling here) and will be a vendor at a local two day dog show in Oct. Last year they had 650 dogs per day. I haven't been at a dog show since I was a youngster. What do you folks like to see...

    I make my own pumpkin peanut butter treats for Tucker. I typically make them into a little round cookie. But is there a better shape to use for training? He is really bad about inhaling treats in excitement.
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    I spoke with a trainer about Tucker's behavior when seeing other dogs on walks. He constantly barks at them, not sure if in fear or if he just wants to play. I know to try to distract him when this happens, but he doesn't seem to care for the treats we try to distract him with. The trainer...

    I found this recipe on Pinterest... Every dog I've given these treats to loves them! 2/3 c pumpkin puree 2 1/2 c whole wheat flour 3 tbs peanut butter 2 eggs bake for 15 minutes on 350 for soft treats or 30 minutes for harder ones. You can cut the dough just like you would sugar cookies...

    Hey guys, Looking for some low-fat, moderate protein treats to either buy or make. I've made tuna and beef liver treats. I also use low fat mozzarella cheese and turkey dogs for higher value treats. I've heard cottage cheese is a good cheese to use in making treats. I currently feed Merrick...

    Hey guys! I just wanted some opinions on other rewards used besides food for a really strong come cue. Basenji owning folks in particular would be great :) I feel that using treats, even high value, start to get boring and lead to some ignorance of the cue. Since Basenjis are a very "well...

    Hi Dog People, Took my 2 year old hound/shepard mix to the vet the other day and sure enough she's over weight. The made a suggestion of stopping the Milk Bone treats and switching to these. These weight control biscuits are only 19 calories and Morgan doesn't seem to mind them one bit! Have...

    Hi all, I have a 10 year old female cockapoo and a 2 year old male Bichon Frise. Our cockapoo is spayed but our Bichon is not neutered. Our problem is that the Bichon (Toby) since he is still basically a puppy is hyperactive and will not leave our cockapoo (Tootsie) alone. He wants to play...
