I have no idea when is a good age to get a maltese baby started training on treats. I am bringin home early (i know it's not recommended but I already paid for him and I want to keep him) at 8 weeks. The breeder said no treats for a few months until she is totally adjusted to her food and developed good eating habits. i.e., not refusing her kibble and only wanting human food or treats. Does anyone have any recommendations or experience with this?
We went the Cheerio route with Sis as well. We would break it into 4 pieces to give her for potty success!! I think these are really the easiest "treat" for their tummy's at this puppy stage. When she was good to go on her regular food she graduated to "store bought" treats, no red dyes, no preservatives etc. Natural ones are the best. We started fun treats at about 14-16 weeks and then only once in a while.
