Wet Noses Little Stars Treats are my new BFF.
If you’ve been around here long, you’ve heard me complain that all the treats Silas can eat are too big for training. They’re both too big and too expensive for things like counter-conditioning the yard maintenance. They don’t fit in kibble/treat dispensing toys, like the Buster Cube.
These “tiny organic training treats” are perfect. Each little star is about the size of my smallest fingernail. Even in Silas’s small size Buster Cube, the treats both go in and come out easily. When the lawn people come, I can toss a whole handful onto the ground. They still aren’t incredibly cheap–they’re about $7 for an 8oz package–but his turkey-based treats run $10 for half as much. The tiny size also helps to stretch them a lot further than similar weights of other treats.
The only downside is that they aren’t a really high-value treat. He’s more than happy to eat them at home, but they aren’t something that he’ll work for in training class or eat outside. They also aren’t grain free, which I’m not wild about.
These are listed as 6 calories a treat, so don’t let the tiny size talk you into giving too many.

Oh – Blueberry loves these! I love this size as I hide treats for her around the house each day before I leave for work and they are small enough they don’t pack on the pounds, plus they are quality treats. Blueberry doesn’t have any grain issues – so these are good for her. Wet Noses also has other different treats that she also enjoys that are larger – they have a pretty nice variety! If you go to their website, you get to see everything they have to offer which is a lot more than you can find in most stores. 🙂
I agree – it’s nice to find a small treat that isn’t junk!
I used to use these ALL the time. Then the price picked my pocket good.
For as much training as I do with Elli, I stay away from commercial brands for the most part.
