Choose the Right Size Treat when Training your Dog or Puppy

There are different types of treats for different types of dog or puppy training. Please go here to read the what treats are best for each type of training. http://doggiemanners.com/how-to-use-dog-training-treats-effectively/

Training treats should be soft treats when teaching your dog or puppy obedience behaviors so that you get a lot of repetitions in a very short time, and they should be geared to the size of your dog.

Guideline for Choosing the Right Size Treat When Training your Dog or Puppy

If your dog weighs less than 5 pounds, the treats should be half the size of a grain of rice.

If your dog weighs 5-10 pounds, the treats should be the size of a grain of rice.

If your dog weighs 10-25 pounds, the treats should be half the size of a pea.

If your dog weighs 25-40 pounds, the treats should be half the size of a dime.

If your dog weighs 40-60 pounds, the treats should be the size of a nickel

If your dog weighs 60-80 pounds, the treats should be the size of a little larger than a nickel.
