    Hi!!! So I got my little chihuahua just a day ago and we got some treats that claimed to be for puppies as young as 4 weeks and some 6 (she's roughly 10). The problem is neither of the treats seem to interest her which is a pain trying to train her. Even when the treats are broke up and moistened and she takes them it takes her a while to eat them. Does anyone know any treats that are great for puppies and would be easily eaten as an aid in training. Thankyou.

    I make liver cake for Pippa which she loves but I also use hot dog sausages occasionally - cut into small pieces - plus carrots, ham and cheese.

    Good luck with the training :D

    Some people use pepperoni very tiny peices as its very smeely and gets there interest. Dont go mad though as not sure on salt content. Some people use plain chicken, raw carrot, mine liked small pieces of liver cake . Ask on here im sure theres a recipe and it freezes well to.

    I remember when i bought my first bichon, she was fed chicken treats from Harrods , no less lol. Well, i didnt have a convienient harrods near me ( can you imagine a Harrods stop and shop lol) so small pieces of cut up chicken are good unfortunatly i find any strong smelling food comes out in my dogs skin which isnt nice at all so i tend to avoid these.

    Hi, hot dog sausages are very good ,:) cut into very thin slices, or any sliced spam type meats( as you can do smaller bits) and if it has garlic in it even better as most dogs love it.:smilewinkgrin:

    I found smoked ham to be very good, and you can cut it up really small :)

    Like the others i have used small bits of hotdog and pepperoni sausage. Cheese and chicken. Bella doesnt really like the puppy treats either!

    Also Bella is on dry food so i sometimes just use a bit of that!

    cheese, ham, chicken, liver (not too much for a puppy) .... anything that has a strong smell ...

    but because dogs are different u will have to try out different treats to see what ur puppy likes :)

    With my german shorthaired pointer, we used cheese, frankfurters chopped up really small, and also we did liver for him. It did stink out the house for the most of 5 hours though...:p
