High Value Treats or Kibble?

1250 5
Not sure if this goes in training or food. Noodle doesn’t seem to have any digestive issues with changing up food but he seems to be generally unmotivated to eat his kibble. I think what is going on is that he gets higher value treats when training and the kibble just is blah in comparison. But when I try to train with kibble, he loses interest super fast. When it is something he really isn’t into, like lying still for grooming, he really is only motivated by treats. But I do want him to get good nutrition. Any advice?

Thank you for the great suggestions. I am still trying to figure out what kibble he might eat reliably. But we are working on ratcheting down the interest of treats for “easy” training.

I’d love to train with a toy but we are still working on drop it (with treats). It is a lot to juggle but we will get there. ... I’m hoping anyway.
