Farm Hounds teamed up with professional dog trainer, Alli Bennett, to help answer some important questions on dog behavior and training! Farm Hounds has excellent treat options when it comes to training treats. Our pasture-raised beef organ are high-value and nutritionally dense. Your dog will be sure to work hard for a bite of beef heart, beef kidney, beef liver, or beef tongue! Our "Treats" line is another great option for training because they are pre-scored to break easily into small pieces. This allows you to give several small treats during a training session without overloading your dog's belly! Read our Q & A with Alli below!
A. I’ve been professionally training since 2014.
A. Yes! I have 3 dogs; two 9-year-old mutts and a very sassy 3-year-old Cairn Terrier.
"I prefer to look at each dog I work with as an individual and develop the best training plan from there."
A. For training my go to is always the beef kidney. Whenever I have puppies working on crate training I love the duck gizzards as a high-value reward to give a puppy 5 minutes or so to work on in the crate.
"Treats are such a valuable and necessary tool for training. Think of treats as the ultimate form of currency for most dogs."
Farm Hounds treats and dog training go hand in hand! Whether you're training your puppy or dog for the first time, or teaching your dog new tricks, grab a bag of Farm Hounds and have some fun!
Dogs have an instinctual need to chew. It is nature's way of easing puppy teething pain and keeping teeth healthy and strong as a dog gets older. Chewing also releases endorphins in a dog's brain! Endorphins are often called "happy" chemicals. This release can be compared to the feeling humans have when laughing. Therefore, dogs will use chewing to naturally ease anxiety and stress. It is also a great resource for getting out some excess energy on a rainy day when a walk or a run to the park is just not feasible!
