Favorite Dog Treats

Dog training is all about motivation. Dogs (and humans!) work to attain something or avoid something. A well crafted training plan uses a variety of dog treats that are categorized into high value, medium value and low value. Please keep in mind that rewards are individual to the dog! What one dog loves another dog may think is below average on the yummy scale.
