Default HELP! Need a quick advice!!!

I was going to get Paris Nutro's Natural Choice Crunchy Peanut Butter treats but was reading how many of you do cooked chicken breast. Cooking chicken would be much more practical for me.

Think I can give it to her (for training purposes) if she is still on weening puppy kibble?

Also how do you store the leftover pieces your dog doesn't eat that day? should I put it in a ziplock bag in the fridge?

Yes, you may give her tiny pieces of boiled or plain baked chicken (no seasoning or oil) for training. You will want to cut them into super tiny pieces.

In the past I have cooked a chicken breast, cut it up into pieces, and then refrigerated it in a storage container for a few days (if I know I will use it all), or I have also frozen the cooked chicken in a foodsaver bag.

I would not feed any Nutro products. They are not very high quality and they have also had many recalls in the past. There are lots of threads about food on here that you can check out for recommendations.

My dogs are so food motivated that all I need to offer is bits of their regular food. just a piece of kibble...and praise, they will gladly perform every trick they have learned. Maybe I am just lucky, I don't know.

I use gluten free cheerios (we are a GF house LOL)...and like Claire said -- they are really "high value" in our house I just have to open the box and Grace is all excited!

Back when she was able to eat meat -- I did do baked chicken for her. I baked it and it was so easy to cut up and then sort of crumble the dices into tiny "crumbs"....

I use a variety of things--cherrios (can't get them here so bring them from US), my own dehydrated turkey jerky, some lovely treats Orla & Alexa sent (I don't give them a whole one, break them up in pieces) and I also get Thinkers Smart Dog Snacks--my dogs like the Natural Duck & they are made in the US--the sticks are long so I slice them thinly w/a knife & put them in a covered glass jar---they go mad over these.
My friend just sent them Little Jacs Small dog training treats (made w/fresh chicken liver) and they like these very much. They don't like the fruit ones she sends as they don't like many fruits---one of the few things they are not crazy about.
I also give carrotts, apples, the center part of romaine lettuce, and they go crazy over watercress---raw!
Oh yes, peanut butter---tiny, tiny amount on an apple slice! That is how they eat fruit!

For training, I've used Cheerios, carrot bits, and Wet Noses Little Stars treats. They are all considered "high value" by my girls, but then Tessa hasn't met a treat she didn't like!

that's what I was hoping to train her on, kibble, since she'll get excited over it, plus I'd highly praise her and rub behind her ears when she does the right thing. But Paris is a headstrong puppy, she will try to get her way, I need something more than kibble.
