I have a small terrier mix who I’m doing a lot of training with and I’ve been wondering what people’s suggestions are when it comes to treats for smaller dogs. With my larger dog, I can easily give her plenty of small training treats during sessions and jackpots of a few treats at a time when she does really well. However, with my smaller dog, I want to make sure that I’m not overfeeding him. Unfortunately, he rarely shows any interest in toys, and as a former stray he isn’t always comfortable being petted too much, so food is the only way to reward him.

I’ve seen suggestions in the past to lower the amount of food he is given at mealtimes to balance it out but I know the training treats aren’t as nutritious as his regular food, so I doubt that would be very healthy. Any thoughts?
