Dog treats, as well as play, are an essential part of reward based training, though many owners mistakenly use normal dog biscuits when training and then find that their dogs have become unresponsive to their commands. During training sessions it is essential that you always use “Smelly” treats to ensure that your dog is properly rewarded.
“Smelly” treats are generally considered to be Cheese, cut Sausages or for some special Smelly treats why not try one of our recipes below.
