Best quality dog treats?

Im currently potty training my 12 week old male yorkie.
When he goes outside, I'd like to give him a treat as a reward.
I had beggin strips so I cut them up in tiny pieces, but he smelled it and walked away.
So I gave him a tiny piece of ham and he went NUTS!

He also went nuts when I started mixing in small amounts of his wellness CORE [with the food the fed him.
So I take it that he only likes high quality meaty stuff- and no treats like beggin strips, which are made of mostly corn. LOL smart pup!

I was looking at the Blue buffalo training treats. What high quality treats do you guys reccomend?

Have you tried hot dogs? You can cut them up into tiny pieces and a lot of dogs REALLY like them. Not really high quality in terms of health, but they might be worth looking into as high value treats.

That's exactly what I was going to suggest when I saw the thread title :)

However, you can also just use kibble.. unless you free feed (which is really not a good idea) most dogs will be happy to get any kind of food reward - they're not super picky about it being something "special". For potty training I'd just use kibble.. other more focused training I'd use something the dogs would get a bit more motivated for.

Hot dogs are a simple easy treat. If you want to get really into it,I train my GSDs with baked beef liver in the oven,cut it in small pieces after its cooked. Watch out for the smell thou!

TLC dog food and treats are great! That's what we feed our dogs, and the ingriedents are pretty good as far as dog foods go! :D Their treats are just like biscuits really, they'd be pretty big a yorkie pup so I'd break them up as much as you can. You can only order them online though.

Zukes is an awesome brand for dog treats as well! I also favor Natures Champions (I believe that's what it's called)

I make my dog's treats myself because with all these recalls of dog treats and stuff, I don't want them to get sick or die. Specifically because Kiara, a German Shep I used to babysit occasionally died from kidney failure due to one of those botched food incidents. They don't seem to notice they aren't store bought and I know exactly what they are eating.

Thanks guys, we ended up buying the blue buffalo treats but I found a recipe for homemade treats, made of one ingredient only. Were gonna make these once we run out of the Blue. http://www.dogtreatkitchen.com/chick...og-treats.html

Tiny milkbones work for training. I use them when training my rats as well. Also I can't remember what they are called but there is an all organic dog/cat food store that has REAL natural meat that is treated a lot like jerky and can be cut into smaller pieces for training. My music teacher feeds them to her dog ChiChi and they actually give her lots of energy and keep her healthy for an older dog. I'll have to look them up now.
