Do you guy use them? If so, what do you use?

I no longer use licky treats as part of our program here, but I used to and when I did, I used yogurt, baby food, honey maple syrup and occasionally vanilla ice cream.

I don't use licky treats. No reason except that I don't need to. I know that my daughter doesn't because she feels that when she does, her gliders are more apt to nip looking for treats....very similar to the horses. I have to admit, her gliders no longer nip and are SO sweet :o))

I still do licky treats every now and again. I tend to do it when gliders are out in tent time and I want a snack and they begs for it. But I also give then when I have a crabby baby. I use yogurt or baby food unless I m eating something like a PB&J sandwich then they get jelly treat. Only a tiny dab though.

I don't use them. I did at the very beginning and found that it encouraged nipping behavior, especially for those that had a big appetite or were very food motivated. That said, if I happen to have something on my finger that my gliders want, they get it. LOL

When I used them consistently, I used avocado, yogurt, agave nectar and baby food.

I thought I'd try a licky treat with Georgie last night (it's been a while)....and he tried to get a chunk of treat, not lick it! Hahahaha!!! That's why I don't do much with licky treats...except from a spoon when I am sharing my yogurt.

I used to use them a lot more often. Applesauce, honey, and yogurt mostly. I just haven't felt the need to use them, but I found that it helped tremendously with my "vicious" glider, Nynaeve. Tent time and licky treats did the trick to curb her biting behavior. She stopped trying to kill me after she realized that I can leave her alone and she can crawl on me without attacking her in the tent and she also found that my hands brought good things. She still doesn't care for me that much, but she puts up with me and no longer bites.

Funny how differently the same method used for treats affects different gliders. It's the same with our horses...some nipped as a result of treat giving, others didn't.

NO licky treats here anymore. I give a spoon with yogurt in the mornings, all 4 dive on it licky, licky, licky then back to sleepy, sleepy, sleepy.
