English term or phrase: treat
When we want to give our dogs a goodie, we use the word "treat." Many dogs are trained to respond to this word. What word do French-speakers use? (If there are options, my preference would be a Canadian French word.)
Merci!
Samanda
friandise
Explanation:
There are a few other choices such as:

gaterie, bon bon, régale

however the first one is the one most used in Canadian French.

There is a slang word used also, but it is no where to be found in the dictionary so it wouldn't be of any assistance in a written text.

Hope these are helpful.
