    Candi is usually not food or treat motivated, that is until she had a taste of the LIL PLATES(beef flavor).

    Great for training / encouraging good behavior

    By Steph on Jul 19, 2020

    These are great because they're only a couple calories each, so you can give quite a lot while training or coaxing good behavior. I've been tasked with cutting my sensitive rescue dog's hair since Covid started and these help me get his face and front paws - areas he REALLY doesn't like to be touched. These do the trick and they're made of beef, peas, and potatoes, so I feel good about giving them to him. Thanks Merrick!

    great training treat

    By jackthelabsmom on Jun 14, 2020

    We have these in a flip top container on our island for quick rewards or training. Our 82lb lab mutt knows the sound of that jar opening and comes trotting from whatever room he is in. He auto sits just waiting for a trick or command to get some of these. High enough reward for bath time or cleaning his paws (which he HATES), and even if we give him 50 during say bathtime, or when Grandpa comes to visit and just HAS to give him a couple of treats, it's not that many calories in his overall daily count. Please don't ever stop making them!! Beef flavor all the way due to sensitivity to chicken.

    My miniature golden doodle loves these bit size treats. It was the first time trying them out, and he perks up every time he hears me opening the bag.

    WONDERFUL treats with low calories that he is HAPPY to work for.

    By Bentley on May 1, 2020 top1000Contributor

    They are only 1.7 calories per piece and they are big enough that I can actually break them in half so I can give him twice as many rewards! He loves these and I use them in a rotation with about 4 or 5 other items to keep it interesting and keep him working hard. All of his treats have to be 3 calories or less or I won't buy them. I can't see putting my pup at risk for obesity when there are so many good treats for low cal available. Merrick Lil Plates give us SO many flavor options! 100% Will buy more and highly recommend!
