In my opinion Zuke’s Mini Naturals make the ideal dog training treats. Training sessions are repetitive and require frequent rewards to reinforce your dogs learning. These treats are small, so you can give them 15-20 of them during a session and not worry about over feeding. The small size is also nice because you do not have to worry about breaking off pieces of treat and delaying your training session. The treats are moist and easy to chew so it won’t take your dog long to chew and swallow.
Giving treats that take your dog a long time to chew and ingest can really derail your training efforts. You want something that is tasty enough to make the dog want to perform, but small and chewable enough to where the dog can eat it quickly and get back to the task at hand. These fit that bill. My dog absolutely loves the chicken flavored treats and that keeps him engaged the entire duration of our 10-15 minute training sessions. They also come in Duck, Peanut Butter and Oats, Pork, Rabbit, and Salmon flavors.
It is nice to know these treats are made with all-natural ingredients. Our dogs depend on us to look out for them when it comes to nutrition, and you can be comfortable knowing the first ingredient in Zuke’s is real meat.
Zuke’s are made in Durango, Colorado so it’s also nice knowing these are made in the U.S.A.
