Rated 4 out of 5 by Gayze A good "medium value" treat
I've always liked the Blue Buffalo products for my pets, so decided to try their Blue Bits soft training treats. My dog enjoys clicker training, and I break the little heart shapes in half to use as clicker treats. He will choose these over other tid-bits often enough that I've begun to use them for a somewhat higher-value treat. They don't reach the reward level of something like squeezy-cheese or a lick of jarred baby food, but they're great for the more special moments (and a lot less messy).
They're a bit on the pricey side, so it's nice to be able to reserve them for the medium-value training moments. You know what it's like, when you've been working on something slightly more complicated, and the dog shows you that he's finally taken the understanding to a deeper level? "Jackpot!", and the Blue Bits fit the bill for "lightbulb moment" reward.
I have recommended these to friends, since trying them, for dogs who are not really "food motivated", and several people have reported back that the Blue Bits are being accepted by dogs who normally aren't that interested in treats.
If you're looking for a slightly higher-value training treat that are easy to carry around and your dog will have fun working for, give Blue Bits a try.

My boxer puppy jumps for joy when I take these treats out! He really loves the taste and they are very helpful in training him. I have always been pleased with Blue Buffalo products and will continue to shop with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sage3 Soft, good size
I purchased these due to the indicated ingredients. My puppy really likes food and she is just ok with these. Someone in my training class uses these successfully and my puppy will eat them, it is just not a high value treat for her. The ingredients are what I want to feed my dog but apparently this is not her flavor. I will try another flavor next time.

I used this treats for my dog to ensure that he gets healthy treats. They are perfect size for my 30 pound Brittany. The only down side is that they are a bit expensive. I can get other healthy treats for a bit less.

Unlike most dogs, ours (Mandy, a Tibetan Spaniel) is extremely picky, and has walked away from many treats! Difficult to teach a trick or reinforce positive behavior when she sniffs the treat and turns away! I told the Chewy representative our concerns and he suggested I try Blue Buffalo Blue Bits Tasty Chicken Natural Soft-Moist Training Dog Treats. Mandy loves them! And we feel great about using them, since they are small (not over feeding) heart shaped, without wheat (common allergen), and the soft texture is easily chewed. One bag has lasted for weeks, due to the small size and number of treats per bag, another plus for us! Knowing that these treats have ingredients that are good for our dog's development (DHA supports cognitive development) and that our picky eater will obey and listen just to get one, makes these the perfect treats for us! (Thanks to Chewy Rep. for listening to my concerns and suggesting these treats!)

These training bites are soft, great tasting, easy to break in half to use frequently and convenient. They do the trick and are one of the healthiest ones out there.
