Training Treats

Mitch started obedience class last Wednesday and the trainer wants mom to bring an assortment of treats.  
Mom decided that we should all take a ride.

 Calm down, Mitch - you're too excited.  You're blurring the picture!
Those are too big.  Kathy says little ones so you can have LOTS!
 What about a nice new collar. 
Kids get new school clothes, mom.  I think Mitch should have a new stylish collar!
 OOPS!   I guess I'm blurring the picture now.  I haven't had a bully stick in soooooooooo long!  Please, mom, please?
 We're going with the Wellness treats, Mitch.   Mom can cut those up into smaller bits and they're the ones that Kathy uses so these will work out just fine!
I'm all set for week 2 with my training trees and shorter hAirecut!
So until next time................

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Enjoy! Sounds like fun!

What fun! I've never taken Sissy shopping. Gretchen went while Sissy was having eye surgery, and had a panic attack. Who knew?! Such a girlie girl, we were sure she'd love it...

Mitch,
That is the bestest part about dog school. New wardrobe and packing some treats. We used to cut up little pieces of cheese and turkey dogs and Zukes.
I bet you are getting Soooo Smart!

Great jaircut Mitch! How's obedience school? Did you leave an apple for your teacher at the end of the lesson?

The Life of Riley said...

It looks like you are already for school? Have you done your homework yet or have you eaten it! Oh that's right, your homework was to find a way to eat your food treats!

scotsmad said...

Awesome treats, we don't know whether you should hold out for a treat, or just be VERY obedient, so you get more...

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Yep, the tastier the better for class. Mom used to bring hot dog bits or liver treats. Something reserved just for training time. We think you should have gotten a few bully sticks for rewards at home:)

Mango said...

We have many different kinds of treats. Cheese is always good, but so are many of the packaged treats. I break them up into impossibly small pieces most of the time. Just a taste, but watch your fingers.

P.S. Norwood uses carrots. Yum.

Topcat said...

Loading up on treats is good. Helps to focus things a bit more.

Teddy Bear said...

What a great assortment of treats for your class, Mitch. We know you'll be learning lots and lots and can't wait to hear all about it. We love the Wellness treats.:)

Love,
Teddy Bear & Sierra

Stardust said...

A shorter hAirecut is good this season, work hard there Mitch!

I dun't like bully sticks.

Sawyer the Schnauzer said...

I use Zukes Mini Naturals. They're only 2 calories each, and I cut them into three pieces. Healthy, so you can give them more and get a lot of training in without making them sick...or fat...hahha!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Mitch
I think you have a good assortment of treats.
My moms cut my treats into 4 pieces,,, so I think I am getting more... sometimes,, its not very big,, i tell you!
love

Maybe human pups would learn faster if they got treats and rewards all day! Good luck with the classes.

The Army of Four said...
