      Welcome Mookie D!  String cheese (or more accurately the low-fat mozzarella or cheddar imitations) diced into minuscule cubes. If you're training something that is tolerant of chewing time (like a reward for sit, etc) our guys love Charlee Bears. Cheese is more high-value to them. Nuclear-grade (but messy): liverwurst Anything small and interesting can work. At the suggestion of a friend I once used tiny dried sardines.

      Hello everyone! We have had a 9 week old cairn terrier, Mookie, for only about three days now. He’s very playful and a lot of fun, and extremely disinterested in treats. For now, were just rewarding good behavior with toys and praise, but he wants absolutely nothing to do with his “Blue Bits Soft Moist Training” and “Old Mother Hubbard Classic Puppy” treats. If anyone has recommendations on treats that their cairn pups love to assist with training, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

      She is a beauty! She looks just like my last cairn Coco! My pup is 4 months old and quite the “naughty terrier” but also a sweetheart! I’ve already utilized so much knowledge from the fellow members here and I’m sure you will too.

      That is a great photo! Whether Wicket or Toto, she is adorable. You can get lots of advice -- as well as oohs and aahs about her cuteness - from the folks here. We understand the nipping phase, the housebreaking challenges, and the independent spirit, which sometimes manifests as stubbornness. We never tire of cute stories. And we sympathize when you are at your wit's end. Please show up often - you are welcome here. And you are going to love having a cairn.
