Healthy Dog Treats
Along with feeding your dog a healthy, raw food diet on a daily basis, it’s also important to give your dog healthy dog treats. Healthy dog treats are used for a number of reasons. From obedience training to showing affection, giving your canine buddy healthy dog treats will be a reward for both you and your pet.
Healthy dog treats are an irreplaceable means for training. Healthy dog treats are also great for rewarding and reinforcing those good behaviors learned during training. Beyond their natural instinct to please their masters, dogs are strongly motivated by food. This makes the use of dog treats invaluable aids during and after training. However, it’s of critical importance to not give your dog too many treats. Feeding your dog too many treats can lead to weight gain, bad eating habits, and other detriments. So, though giving treats is a fun and inexpensive way to train and reward your dog, keep the number of treats you give to a minimum. That being the case, your best option is to give your dog healthy dog treats.
At The Dog Bowl, we specialize in healthy dog treats. The treats we carry are low in fat, low in calories, and nutritionally balanced. Take a moment to evaluate these different treats in our inventory:
Beef Achilles Tendon Dog Treat
All of our healthy dog treats contain real meat, combining the natural taste dogs crave with the protein they need to thrive. Whether you're looking for training aids, rewards, or simply a fun addition to your dog's diet, you can rely on The Dog Bowl for the meaty, crunchy, and chewy treats your dog loves. From beef and poultry to fish and game, we have treats that will please any dog.
Beyond training, rewarding, and showing affection, giving your dog treats to chew on is something every dog needs. Chewing is a natural, normal behavior for all dogs. Chewing relieves frustration, anxiety, boredom, and is an enjoyable pastime. However, not all dog treats are created equal. Don’t make the mistake of giving your dog a cooked chicken bone, or any cooked bones as that may splinter, or you’ll be taking a trip to the vet. Rawhide treats are widely known to be difficult to digest and cause intestinal problems. Your safest option is to stick with all-natural, healthy dog treats.
If your dog is overweight, on a diet, or if you simply prefer all-natural treats, then you want to give your dog the treats we supply. Any one of them will make a good selection. They’ll keep your dog happy, keep your dog fit, and they’ll even keep your dog’s teeth and gums clean and healthy.
Though giving your pet healthy dog treats is fun to do, be careful not to give your dog too many. Veterinarians recommend that treats should constitute no more than 10% of your dog's daily caloric intake:
