Timely post...I just picked up my RR puppy this weekend. Thus far, he only seems to respond to honeybaked ham bits... But, these sound like good snacks for his reward-based training.

Love your blog - wonderful illustrations, great posts.

Thanks Alison!

Congrats on the new RR pup!! (very jealous over here...) These treats ARE super for training rewards, though I will say, when working with the insane distractibility of a puppy, using *exceptionally* high-value treats (rich, moist, amazing-smelling = cooked/smoked meats, cheese, etc) tends to be most effective. Offering a "trail mix" of succulent meats paired with little dry treats can be a good option.

RRs are classic general food hounds, but if you find your pup's attention wandering on you, step up the yum factor of your rewards. Best of luck!!
