I've bought those for Rubi before. She definitely loves em. We used em in training.

But recently bought these: http://www.bestbullysticks.com/home/bbs/page_149_26/plato_6oz._salmon_dog_treats.html

And believe it or not...they smell WORSE than the Zukes. :barf: Cant open the bag without a strong wiff of salmon and without me gagging for the next 10 minutes. But the dawgs love em!!!! Will do back flips to get one. Rubi tried to attack the box when it came in and get it opened, just so she could get the treats. Then, knocked em off the dining table (which is one of those tall, bar-like tables) and caught her right as her and Grady were trying to work their way into the bag. The smell is soooooo strong. Ick!

Ok, that's so funny, I use Zuke's, I hate fish smells, and the Zuke's salmon doesn't bother me! We've got the PB ones in stock at the moment.

They sell them at Trigger's Vet's office and also the small food store where I buy Trigger's Wellness Core.  I think I've only bought them once...I guess I need to pick up another bag!

My furkids love Zukes minis.  We use them sometimes for training too.  We also get these freezed dried Salmon treats that smell horrible but the dogs got nuts over them.

Small treats are actually much better - Training treats should really only be about the size of your pinky nail. You don't want to overfeed him via training treats, you just need to give him enough to keep him interested and let him know he did good.  :2thumbsup:
