Treats for puppies

Tasty treats are a must-have when you’re raising a puppy. They are the perfect aid when training and rewarding positive behaviours. Most puppies love food. This means you can easily show them the benefits of behaving well inside and outside the house.

It is important to make sure you do not overfeed them. Treats have to be given as part of a balanced diet.

Choosing appropriate treats can play a big part in keeping your puppy both happy and healthy. There are so many different treats for puppies available,  it can be hard to figure out which one is best.

When picking out treats for your puppy,  look for treats that smell and taste great.  High in vitamins and minerals. Low in calories, and small in size or able to be broken into smaller pieces. At the end of the day, your puppy will be sure to let you know which ones they love the most.

Like all babies, puppies lose their baby teeth and many dogs enjoy chewing on things while they are teething. Keep your pup from gnawing on inappropriate items, like furniture, wires, and shoes. Offer them a chewy long-lasting treat developed to relieve pain and soreness while providing your dog with additional nutrients and vitamins.

 

HOW DO I CHOOSE TREATS FOR MY PUP?

There are lots of treats available for dogs and some, especially for puppies. Whilst they are very young, avoid treats that are hard. Puppies can get over-excited and damage their teeth getting stuck into a bone. Meaty treats and soft dog chews are all good options. Meaty treats are high in protein but also low in fat, therefore, you can keep an eye on the waistlines.
We recommend trying out a variety of treats and seeing which ones your new companion prefers.

THINGS TO AVOID

One of the most important things to remember when choosing a treat is to make sure that it is safe for your puppy to eat. Check the ingredients of any treats you buy to make sure they don’t contain anything that your puppy is allergic to.

Feeding your dog human food can be harmful, with dairy products, fatty meats such as bacon, and fruit with stones such as peaches and plums all to be avoided. Chocolate and grapes are very harmful and should never be given to dogs.

Likewise, anything containing small or sharp bones should definitely be avoided. Chicken bones are one of the main culprits and can be dangerous if they get stuck in a dog’s throat. Our range of bones are all British beef bone and that’s why they are all air dried to perfection to reduce the risk of splintering. We also recommend that our bones are fed to puppies 6 months +.

Whatever treat you are giving your dog please ensure you keep a watchful eye on them and always have water available to them, excited dogs can forget to chew so we would always suggest you are on hand to help if needed.
