I like to use these as training treats for my dogs. They are yummy (according to my dogs) and healthy, and they are small enough that I can give them out, one at a time, in large quantities for longer training sessions, and don't have to worry that the dogs will gain weight. It's amazing what Labradors will do for tasty treats, even tiny ones! They are not messy, and also not stinky, which makes them not the very highest-value treat, but also does not attract undue attention at the dog park. Highly recommended as training treats for dogs!
