22 is a very small number of searches and I would be targeting higher volume keywords.
You can still use the keyword with a 22 count, but this would be to write an article on it to add extra content to your site.
Either Google or Traffic Travis is fine.
It just takes longer when you are manually doing it from Google Keyword tool.

Traffic Travis (daily search): 22
Google Adwords (monthly search): 210
Traffic Travis is pulling its data from the old Google tool. Google has since updated their data a few months ago.
We are currently working out a reliable source for keyword search counts to use with Traffic Travis. You should rely more on the Google tool results at this time, because Google has more data.
We really apologize for the inconvenience. However you should be happy to know we are spending more time and effort into making this section better.
Like I mentioned above, this situation is temporary.
All the best!

Sorry about that, you are indeed right.
I thought you wrote 22 searches a month.
660 is fine.
Maybe staff can answer why there is a discrepancy.
Send in a support ticket if you like.
Also, are you using broad match or exact match in Google keyword tool?
also, here are a couple of posts that I found interesting reading on traffic travis
There are some really great keywords in your list, but you have to be careful. As you consider which ones to use, ask yourself "What could someone typing this in be looking for?" For example, someone who types in "how to potty" might be looking for information on how to potty train their 2 year old child (human, not dog). As another example, someone searching for "Akitas" or "Akita dogs" might be looking for either pictures of the dogs or looking to buy one. Or just out to find out more information about them.
Without really looking at the competition in the SEO Analysis, "German Shepard Obedience Training" is a very tightly focused keyword. Someone searching for this term most likely has a dog that is out of control or has a new puppy that they would like to train. You are much more likely to get good results from a keyword like this.
Hope this helps! Remember, the more you can figure out exactly what a browser is going to be searching for, the easier it will be to give them what they need!
