Pedigree Cheesy Bites
Advantages: Great for training puppies, and small dogs
I am currently taking my puppy Sawyer to Puppy School so the 2 of us can be humiliated in front of the other dogs and their owners, and needed to get some treats to bring, as it is reward-based training. A lot of dog treats do seem to say on the back that they are not to be given to puppies younger than 6 months old. I don't like to take any chances with Sawyer and feed him things he shouldn't be getting at 15 weeks, so I was pleased to see that the back of the pack had no such warning.
These come in a small plastic bag that is bright yellow like all Pedigree products. The back of the pack also gives advice on how many of these you can feed your dog per day; up to 50 treats per large dog. I'm sure no-one is insane enough to give their dog that many - I don't even want to imagine the ensuing poo!! I give Sawyer about 2 a day maximum, and even then it's only if we're doing our Puppy School 'homework'.
The treats themselves are small and chunky, about the size of a peanut. They are oval shaped, and pale cream in colour, with a darker brown circle in the middle. They have a slightly cheesy smell off them but it's not too strong or unpleasant. I'm not sure the smell is strong enough to hold his interest during training, as he seems to work better for the Schmackos the dog trainer gives him.
However, Sawyer loves these regardless. Admittedly this isn't saying much as he would eat anything and everything given half the chance - but they are small, chewy (and tasty I assume), and are an ideal size for small puppies. They are also dry to the touch so it's no problem touching them if you don't like that kind of thing.
I have bought these a few times now and will continue to do so until he is old enough to go onto bigger treats. A great little treat for smaller dogs!
These cost around £1 for 70g.
Thanks for reading.
