Food rewards only need to be big enough for a smell and a taste.

If overfeeding is a concern, then the treats can be part of the dog's daily food ration. Just measure out his daily ration to take treats from that supply.

My dog responds well to nail trimming with treats. I just give him bits of kibble that are part of his measured daily food ration. 1 Paw = 1 Treat. All 4 paws done = Jackpot. When I started trimming he was a pup. In the beginning it was 1 toe = 1 treat. 1 paw = jackpot. 4 paws = Lottery Win (jackpot + big praise and play)
