    Hello!

    Do you like giving snacks to your dogs? If so, what are some recipes/food do you prepare? Thank you!

    I don't snack and neither do my dogs. :) They have always just had their meals and training treats when I had the dogs to myself. Leftovers from human meals were given as part of their own meals.

    OH however is a serial tit-bit-feeder, and snacks constantly, so this is an area where I have to compromise! I don't like it, though.

    Jasper gets a lot of rewards/treats, though only in certain contexts. Mainly because he was such a monster when younger, but was very food motivated and very regular reinforcements helped with his behaviour. He can still get a reward for walking past another dog without reacting, even when he is totally cool about the other dog anyway. Then there's reward/bribery for getting up from a snooze on the grass when I want to get going again, rewards for leaving the kitchen when asked, for recall...

    Mostly I use kibble, but I also use a selection of dog biscuits, bits of old pizza crust, Stilton rind, beefburgers that had lingered in the depths of the freezer that went well past their use-by date, dog sausage... the higher-value ones reserved for when he is being really good. Having a large dog with a fast metabolism means I don't need to worry about his waistline or the odd bit of unhealthy stuff.

    Folly gets a treat as I leave her at home, (ok I know people say we shouldn't make a fuss when leaving them, just slip out quietly but we have always done it so as each came it carried on). And she gets a treat at bedtime, normally a fish 4 dogs square. Other than those she gets a small treat when she goes back on the lead when we are out, and small treats for any training.
