The Number One Puppy Training Tool

Or at least, so we think! Let me introduce you to Stewart’s Beef Liver Treats. We buy a large 21 ounce container from Amazon, which supposedly has about 475 pieces. (The Amazon links in this post are affiliate. Read our disclosure/privacy policy here.) Then, because the pieces are large, and we’re using them frequently to train, we cut each piece into 4-8 bites. I put those into a container, and I keep a sandwich-size bag stocked with them in my pocket for when I train Ellie.

You can see how large the chunks are on the right. I cut them into smaller pieces as you can see slightly to the left.

Right now, Ellie is learning several commands, but her best so far is “Off.” I can hold a treat in my open hand, and she will sit there and watch. As soon as I say “Yes,” she will take it. I’ve tried the standard dog biscuit types of treats, and while those are so-so to her, liver is hands-down her favorite. I think you’ll find, as we have, that your dog will respond enthusiastically to liver treats.

So, need something to help with your dog training? Check out Stewart’s Beef Liver Treats.

Love,

Ellie's amazing with learning "off."
