IAMS Shakeables Treats for dogs


Show your furry friend your love – with a shake and keep the following tips in mind when training your dog. Above all, it’s important not to get discouraged and remember that both a puppy and an adult dog can be trained if you invest the time to do so.

  • Stay Away From Table Scraps – As much as your furry friend loves to hang around the table while you’re eating, ready to pounce on anything that may fall to floor, resist the urge to feed table scrapes. Not only is human food potentially toxic to animals, scraps also tend to be high in fat and calories and low in the vitamins and nutrients your pet needs. Treats, like New Iams Shakeables, offer wholesome ingredients full of delicious flavours your pet will love.
  • Tricks For Treats – Treats can be used for training to get your pet’s attention and keep him or her focused. While training, you should use soft, chewy treats that are easy to digest and won’t take away from training time.
  • Timing is Everything – While training your pet, make sure you are rewarding him or her with a treat immediately after performing the correct action. This ensures the reward is associated with the behaviour.
  • Consistency is Key – Dog training is intense, so choose a day you have a good amount of free time to begin. Pretend you have left the house and stay away for several minutes. Once your dog thinks you’re gone and “violates the restricted area,” walk in and give a firm “no” or “get down.” Direct your dog to his or her bed, and praise him or her for going to it. Repeat this as many times as necessary. Eventually, most dogs will get the hint. Again, consistency is key. This training may have to be repeated periodically over several weeks or even months.
  • Take Treats With You – Most pets don’t stop exhibiting good behaviour after they leave the front door. Whether you’re going on a trip, taking a walk, or playing in the park with your pet, treats make great pet travel rewards.
  • Give Treats In Between Meals – Remember, treats are not a substitute for a meal and should not make up more than 10 to 20 per cent of a dog’s daily diet. To avoid filling up your pet before a meal, try giving treats in between your pet’s scheduled meal times. If you’re training with treats, cut back on meal portions after a session to avoid overeating.

Our dogs are pretty much trained. They get lazy and I find treats helps in getting them back in line. Since teh IAMs Shakeables arrived in our house our youngest has been the treat queen. She climbs up into the cupboard with her chair and grabs the treats. She gives them a shake and laughs when the dogs come running. She then gets each to sit and gives them a treat. It is pretty cute to watch . Our dogs are very gentle and they patiently wait for her to give them each one. It looks like they love the Lamb ones the best. 


Iams® Shakeables Soft and Chewy Treats for Dogs are the new sound of treats.

Dogs will come running when they hear the shake of the can. They’ll also stay, sit and shimmy with joy for these soft, meaty treats.
Great for training, playing, teaching tricks. Or just because they’re a
perfect way to show your furry friend how much you care.

They’re made from real chicken, lamb and turkey and give your dog the great taste he loves.

Show your furry friend your love – with a shake.



  1. Buddy (4 years) is timid and a picky eater, and Pal (5 months) is rambunctious and will eat anything. Both are brothers, same parents but different litters. Pal likes to terrorize Buddy by biting his ears and legs and trying to steal treats right out of his mouth…But Buddy always shows him who's boss when we go outside to play. Buddy always kicks butt!! So glad I got Buddy a friend to play with…I just have to teach Pal to stop with the biting and stealing 😛
