Best Dog Training Treats


We’ve all seen the way our dogs prick up to the sound of a treat packet rustling and react to the smell of a tasty treat. Their love of food makes them so responsive and orientated toward food, and this is what makes treats – especially dog training treats – so effective for getting your dog’s attention and training their behaviour.


Why Training Treats Are Great for Dog Training

Training treats are a great way to motivate your dog or puppy. They incentivize dogs to listen and provide a form of positive reinforcement, encouraging positive behaviour and responses to signals or commands.


What Makes a Good Training Treat?

Because treats can play an important role in training your dog, it’s important that you choose the right kind of treats – ones that drive attentiveness, but are also good for their health. To see success in training, treats need to be considered ‘high value’ by your dog in the sense that it keeps their attention despite what may be going on around them. It’s also best that the treats you choose contain ingredients that are both high quality and nutritional – it’s no good training your dog at the expense of their health and calorie intake.


Best Training Treats for Puppies

When considering good training treats for your new puppy, there are a few things you should have in mind, including:

  • Allergens: You may not be aware of any allergies that your new puppy may have, so it’s always a good option to choose puppy treats that are free from common allergens and nasty ingredients. Our hypoallergenic dog treats avoid ingredients that are less likely to cause intolerances in dogs.
  • Smell: Puppies have an incredible sense of smell and can be very scent-orientated, so treats that have a strong smell will work a treat! For example, our Meaty Nibbles contain 75% chicken & liver, while our Fishy Bites contain 75% salmon – both high protein options with engaging and indulgent smells.
  • Size: Treats that can be easily consumed by small puppy mouths and that are also small enough to be easily concealable during training practices are a great option for puppies. All of our Puppy Treats are easy to break in two to make them suit smaller mouths.
  • Texture: Softer treats are always a better option for smaller puppy mouths and more easy for them to digest.

At Forthglade, our Puppy Treats are made with only natural ingredients and free from any junk, fillers or preservatives. They’re all grain-free and hypoallergenic too, ensuring that they can be easily digested by your pup – no matter how sensitive their tummy may be! With so many flavours, you’re sure to find a treat option that will work well in those puppy training moments.  


Best Training Treats for Dogs

  • Small Size: A treat that is small in size works especially well for dog training. Alongside being easy for them to digest, it also allows your dog to easily consume quickly and promptly move onto the next training exercise after finishing their reward treat.
  • Smell: A treat with a strong smell will be very enticing and more likely to be deemed ‘high value’, helping you to get your dog’s attention and motivate their behaviour
  • Texture: Dependent on your dog’s preference and the sort of training you’re looking to do, you may wish to choose soft treats, which can be quickly eaten, or crunchy treats, which may be more engaging to consume and provide an effective break during longer training sessions.

Our range of adult dog treats provides you with a range of healthy, high value training treats, available in a range of flavour options. They are soft in texture and easy to break in two, alongside being entirely natural, with quality, nutritional ingredients and free from any grains, junk or fillers.

If you’re looking for highly indulgent and enticing treats, take a look at our Meaty Nibbles – Chicken with Liver, Fishy Bites – Salmon & Dill, or our Meaty Sausages – these treats are high in protein, giving them an enticing smell for dogs, ensuring they work very well as high value training treats for adult dogs.


Choosing the Healthy Training Treats for Your Dog

As much as the training treats you choose need to be enticing, most importantly they need to be healthy. You’ll most likely be feeding treats multiple times during a training session, and so they should complement your dog’s diet and not be overly high in fat or calorific.

Take into consideration your dog’s age, size and activity levels when deciding how many treats to feed; they should play only a small part in your dog’s overall balanced diet.
