Some of you know that Toby fights a never ending battle to control his weight. (Yes, yes I do know where the blame for that problem lies.)
Now the good news is that Toby has finally reached his goal weight and we are trying to adjust his diet to a maintenance level.
Toby is ONLY motivated by food so the standard advice to reward him with praise or a ball or a toy is not going to help us in the beginner agility class. But giving him fatty treats every day for practice and during the class itself makes it difficult to calculate the amount he should be eating at meals.

"Good dogs deserve good treats" is on the back of the bag. I have one suggestion for Castor & Pollux; I wish they would print the ingredients and calorie content in larger print. I had to get a magnifying glass to learn that the first 3 ingredients are turkey, potatoes, and peas (sounds like Thanksgiving dinner!)

If you are looking for a healthy training treat that won't slow you down during class or practice, I recommend visiting Chewy.com and trying Good Buddy Dog Treats.
