What kind of treats are best for a 10 week old puppy?

There are literally hundreds of puppy treats available and most are okay.  They can be high in sodium, like a lot of people snacks, and the biggest problems can come from offering to many in a day more so than the treat itself being a problem.  Small treats or breaking up larger pieces is a good idea for little puppies.  Freeze dried liver cubes sold under several trade names are a good choice.  American made chicken jerky products are also lower in sodium.  If there are any vegetables such as carrots or green beans that your puppy likes these are a great choice.  I often use small chunks of cheese.
