Sent from my iPadSeveral people have been asking about training treats again. Training treats should always be soft and small. The reason for this is because a dogs brain quickly flits from one thought to another. Think "SQUIRREL!" from the movie UP. If the dog takes more than one or two seconds to swallow, he no longer remembers it for the last behaviour.
The other thing that you need to think of when you are picking training treats is how healthy they are. When you first start training you should be giving lots of treats. You don't want ti fill up your dog with empty calories.
It's for these two reasons why I use Rollover. Rollover is actually a dog food, not a dog treat. Your dog could eat nothing but Rollover and do very well. There are hundreds of dog treats out there to pick from. As long as you remember the criteria, you can probably find several others that fit the bill.
