Countdown to Christmas, Day 4: New Spot Farms training treats

We're counting down for Christmas!

We know we are missing a post Thursday, and we are late with this one. Galadriel, our kitty, is very sick, so we've been dealing with that. 

More on that another time. 

We're going to unwrap a great giveaway right now!

New Spot Farms Training Treats great for dogs of all sizes

A tough trick to teach a dog is "leave it." But it's a good one to know, especially during the holidays when your dog might get into something they shouldn't.

The easiest way to train "Leave it," how I was taught, is to put the dog in a sit-stay, place a treat some distance between you and the dog, put your hand between and say "Leave It." The dog will eventually avoid the treat. 

But there are a number of ways to do this trick. Here are some different methods you can follow. As always, know your dog before trying a trick, and talk to a trainer about any safety issues you may have. 

I used "Leave it" to take this picture, using Spot Farms Training Stix. Otherwise Lulu would be all over these treats.

Spot Farms always tells you on the back of the back where they get the meat for their treats.

Spot Farms uses local farmers for the meat for all their treats -- and you can see where the farmers are from right on the bag. The meat used is always human grade. For these Training Stix and the Training Bites, Spot Farms also uses cage-free duck.

Spot Farms Training Stix are soft enough to be broken into pieces.

The stix are soft an breakable, so you can break off pieces and hand them to the dog. The Training Bites are made from the Stix, they are just sliced into pieces. That makes them great for all dog sizes.

Spot Farms Training Bites use human grade duck or chicken.

Spot Farms Training Stix and Training Bites come in duck or chicken. They are currently available at Petco, and you can get some now!
