    Dog Food Forum
    Hello! I'm currently having some issues finding good snacks to give my dog when we're training.

He can be difficult to...
  2. Safe chew Treats for Puppy

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    So an Internet friend and I are having a disagreement over beef trachea and pig's ears as chewing relief for a 10 week old puppy. She's of the opinion that they're not safe at all because of toxins and salmonella, while I'm of the opinion (after some research after her comment) they're okay in...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello there :) I'm sorry if this may be a repetitive subject in here but I got a new puppy, she's 6 weeks old today and I've had her for an entire week. She eats well and loves to play but I just can't seem to find a treat to catch her attention to get to the teaching part. I've tried apple...
  6. QT Dog Treats and Chews?

    Dog Food Forum
    At one of the stores I'm doing events at they sell Steer Jerky 30 inch skins which is from QT dog. I liked the product, it's kind of gross but it looks/feels/smells very natural. Is anyone familiar with this company? I can't seem to find their products on Chewy or similar which is a shame...

    Dog Food Forum
    Bland treat alternatives* when battling diarrhea? We just finished our first round of Panacur for Giardia.

  13. How many different types of food/treats do you have on hand at once?

    Dog Food Forum
    I have this bad habit (or maybe good habit depending on how you look at it) of buying food and treats for my dog anytime I find a good deal on something high quality, or something new I'd like to try, regardless of if he needs it. I just looked and realized that my "collection" is getting a...

  17. Not food motivated at all?

    Dog Food Forum
    I've noticed that my puppy is not food/treat motivated. I've especially noticed in training classes. And this makes training at home really difficult. She does take treats but only if there are zero distractions. No distractions are really hard though since I have a roommate and a cat that my...

    Dog Food Forum
    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this. I know green beans are often suggested as "filler" for a dog on a diet, but as we're working on Snowball (not) barking at things out the window and I thought I'd try some left over steamed green beans to see how it'd go. Very well...
