    I just took it for granted that cheese was going to do that anyway so haven’t used cheese yet, I’ve used some other treats which she likes but not sure if she likes enough to charge the clicker… Will try the dried liver tomorrow when my tub arrives! Will also definitely look into drying my own liver (ahem… not my and in mine obvisouly!) I know what I mean in my head!! 😉

    Labradors do consider EVERYTHING to be potentially edible!

    Except mine – who is strange  ::)

    He likes black pudding…  um… anything he doesn’t get much – liver is good, but he gets it fairly often…

    Is picnic season and when we walk in the park in the morning there is litter (and food) everywhere… I am the only one who doesn’t have to wander around telling their dog to leave or drop stuff – cos he won’t touch it anyway  ::)

    mine are all very diffrent

    for Oban it doesnt matter what treat it is – hes got mummys attention all to himself and thats all that matters to him – the only thing you have to consider is his jaw shape – the treat has to be the right size other wise it falls out  ::)

    Flyte  😀 is far to dizzy for it to matter anyway

    Brocks favorite food in the whole world is baked beans – ive often thought of making a baked bean cake and Brock would love it im sure

    Cleo – totally indiffrent to food – indiffrent to life really to be fair  :-\ – favorite food is icecream  😮

    Glen – works really well for high value stuff – liver cake that sort of thing – but he works well for anything

    i think with my dogs being BCs a lot of the time work and spending the time with you is rewarding in itself

    my friend got her lurcher running on in agility using empty cream cake tubs with little bits of cream left in  ;D

    just out of interest I just tried some training with Fritz using apple… he loves apple.. but not for training.. he spat every bit out and looked at me as if to say ‘what else you got there?’  >:D

    I dumped the rest in his bowl later on and he munched the lot  ::)

    Izzy loves prawn crackers too!  😀 she gets a whole one after we’ve finished our chinese.  She doesn’t touch whole pieces of raw fruit (unless another dog is eating some  ::) ) only mushed up fruit.

    I think Bev once said one of hers, maybe the puppy Cubert, will do anything for a garden pea!  Just depends on the dog!

    Cubert will work for a pea, and Brose used to work for sprouts

    Dont forget Ben, to match the treat value to the learning criteria,

    So for C1 you would use a lower value treat to C5, ie, cheese for C1 and liver for C5.

    Buster would do anything for mushrooms  😀

    Honey loves banana but she cant have it, inside the house to be honest she do anything for most food, except vegetables  ::) but outside the house, my praise works best actually shes often not interested in food outside.

    i tend to use mutton out in the field because it provides instant energy and as they are fed raw it a high value for them – so is black pudding but as it spicey it used for series and chains more than onefers and twofers…onfers in the field with pup is cooked chicken or a lick of the pate pot….but yep in the house and garden he will do anything for a garden pea  😀 although now with stuff that is getting fluent he will accept my apprasial instead…

    I know  ::)  – he a strange one… never has been much interested in food… he leaves food if he thinks I have fed him too much – he won’t overeat.

    I tried to feed him a prawn cracker once and he wouldn’t touch it…  same happened with a chip shop chip (there was no salt or vinegar)  ??? – also – get this… If I stick some manuka honey in some yoghurt and don’t mix them up – he will eat the yoghurt and leave the honey – I can mix the honey well into the yoghurt – then he will eat them together.

    What breed you think he might be  ;D
