    The most effective training aid?

    I have tried baked liver - I would give it 7/10
    Cooked Chicked - I would give it 7/10
    Dog biscuits - I would give it 3/10

    What if any treats get 10/10 from you and why :) x

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful evening xxx

    Raw Black pudding works wonders with ours defo 10/10..
    Cheese also way up there..our dogs will do anything for abit of cheese so 9/10
    Baked liver 8/10 with ours
    Boiled chicken also 8/10 with ours!


    All simply because the dogs love them and all of the above are great for traning and ring craft lessons!

    Dog biscuits = turn your nose up and walk out the room!! ha

    Smoked ham 10/10! I bought it by mistake (it was in the bit where the honey roas was and I wasn't looking. No one in my house likes it, except the dogs! It has been Great in teaching them to come to the whistle!

    Sea jerky 8/10 - prob would have been 10 but it STINKS so bad! :(

    Cooked chicken 8/10 they love it :) But as we have chicken once a week its a bit over used for them to get too exited by.

    I haven't tried Black Pudding - will get some tomorrow :)
    Cheese used to be a good one but I made the mistake of taking Tyler to the vet to have his jabs and used cheese as a treat - he threw up in the car on the way home and hasn't touched cheese since bless x

    Deffo Black Pudding tomorrow :) x

    Thanks Kerry-Angel x x

    I have never heard of Sea jerky where can I get some of that from? Smoked ham is a wonderful idea :D thanks hun x x x

    Haddock is a great plan thanks :) x x -

    I bought some tablet sized fish treats from zoo(?) can't remember where bought them online - they were really bad because although the dogs loved them most of the turned to dust in the packet - they were a bloomin fortune too - Probably best to make my own :)

    Thanks :) x

    My lot love hotdog sausages that you get in a jar in brine really cheap i cut them into little bite size bits then divide them andput them in plastic bags in freezer have to remember to take them out before training. I have forgotten sometimes they seem to live them frozen as well

    They are soft rings so can be broken into small peices and STINK so the dogs love them!!

    When I first start teaching people how to use clicker, I advise them to get sliced ham and cut it into small pieces, it's easy to give to the dog, smells strong and they eat it quickly so are not distracted from training while they are munching.;) Obviously it's not ideal to use ham for long as it's very salty but it's great for teaching the basics of clicker.

    The most effective I've found for Motley is cheese, carrot and dog biscuits. I'm thinking of making him some from scratch, see what he thinks :D
