I'm looking for a *quality* puppy kibble with large kibble sizes so it is easier to use as a reward in obedience and tracking.
Any suggestions? Located in the US, no places to buy dog food here besides grocery stores and Petsmart, so of course I'd be willing to order from online.
TIA! :-)

chewy.com carries almost ever brand there is and they deliver to your door step. Chewy just came out with their own brand (American Journey). Good reviews on Dog Food Advisor.

I have found that a good quality, LARGE BREED PUPPY food usually has larger sized kibble. Are you going to use it only for reward or for regular food as well, and is it for a puppy?

There is a very good dog food out called "Stella & Chewy"...It's very nice large size pieces and would be great as a reward type food...
My wife uses it for her Yorkies...
You want a reward that can be consumed rather quickly...So they can keep their attention on you...or the task at hand...

Just a query ? Why the need for a larger size kibble ? I've never found size to be a problem - indeed, quite the reverse - when you have a small biscuit size available, if using as training rewards.

As Bob says ^, you need biscuits that can be consumed quickly, so as not to 'break the flow' of attention; and you can get more pieces in your pocket or treat bag if they are smaller. The bigger the piece of kibble, the more it works against those factors.

I find dogs will usually work for the tiniest pieces - and that then points up the difference even more when you want to particularly note some spectacularly good bit of work and switch to a 'high value' reward (chicken/sausage/cheese, whatever). If I make & use liver cake, I cut that up really quite small...

Actually...in my opinion...I don't like using "kibble" as rewards or as a "quick reward"...Only because the dog has to chew it...this takes time and when the attention is broken from the task at hand this loses the moment...I personally choose a reward (treat/food) that can be basically swallowed without taking any time to do so...
Now I have and do use a "kibble" like at the end of a Track...Or...Maybe sometimes for a "send out"...
This is not saying using "kibble" as a reward is right or wrong...because it all depends on a lot of variables such as the Handler...the Dog...the Weather...etc...
