I am always on the lookout for a treat the crew can be enticed by. Especially when training for the show ring. We have little ones hat need to be lead trained and as much as they all seem to love chicken, having something easy to grab is a plus. Easy to grab AND enticing? That’s Da Bomb!
Merrick has been our go-to for quite a while now, so when I saw this amazing selection of different treats, we just had to see how they would be received. I know they LOVE the Mini Bone Brushes. We are on our third bag! So when I saw these Power Bites and their tiny size, I mediately thought about how easy those would be to carry around for training.
We have removed all chicken from their meals, leaving it to the only bait we use in the show ring. I thought picking up the Chicken version of the Power Bites might be the best route to help training the little ones. They are soft and easy to swallow. The pups love them! I will have to finish our testing on some of our older ones. KC is the pickiest one in the ring – She will be the sure-tell!
I also thought I would give the Kitchen Bites a try for the entire crew. Finding an appealing crunchy treat is not as easy as you might think. I have a few that will eat anything but the majority do stick their noses up, or should I say drop the treat and a walk away. Since they all like the Cowboy Cookout moist food, I went that route with the treats. I will let you now how that test goes next!
In the meantime, feel free to do you own tests. Merrick has a printable coupon on their website. I totally recommend that you give them a go – And I guarantee your lap-over will thank you.
