These Yip-Bits are made specifically for a training treat. They are made with our sweet potato or pumpkin cake batter, so they are a soft treat. When you get them the best way to store them is to keep them in the freezer ( in a freezer bag) and thaw out what you need for training or store them in the refrigerator. When left on the counter they only last about 1 week, due to them being soft and holding more moisture then the regular dry treats. They can also be broken in half if you need a smaller treat then these little ones.
