DGP Training Supplies

After working with thousands of dogs and puppies, we have tried and tested many different treats, tools and toys.  We created this page to highlight the ones we like and use along with links to make it easy for you to find them. If you have any questions on any of these training supplies, please ask your class instructor before or after class.

Treats

Our favorite treats are the Tricky Trainer chicken liver treats from Cloudstar. These are primarily what we use in class. They come in multiple flavors and two sizes. We suggest getting the 14 oz bag as you will use a lot of these during training.

Be sure to seal the bag right away and burp all the empty air out of it. These treats work so well due to having no preservatives, but that means they dry out quick.
