What are the best treats to use in training my German Shepherd?
I'm adopting a GSD puppy and I hope to train him with positive reinforcement which will include for a while a treat as a reward.
What are the best treats to use without packing the pounds on the little fellow? I don't want it to be something that has to be cooked or something that has a short shelf life.Total German Shepherd
Below are a few suggestions for training treats that you may want to try. No matter what you use however, I would suggest you break it up into tiny, tiny pieces so that the treat goes longer during the training sessions and so that you're not giving them a great big piece of something each time you treat them.
Also, if you can find something really aromatic, maybe liver based or something, the dogs love it even better even though you might not.
Biggest thing of all to remember - keep in mind how many treats you're giving and subtract those from meal time otherwise you'll end up having a tubby GSD puppy. Good luck training your German Shepherd puppy
