Getting Down To Basics with Pets

Training Treats for Dogs

We give our dogs food products from the pet shop in order to keep them healthy and strong but there are also other needs that dogs have that are required to keep them in good condition like dog shampoo, dog brush, dog treats and toys. You can also buy them leashes, cooling and heating mats, and other things that make it easy for you to handle your pets.

Aside from the physical needs of our dogs, they have also behavioral needs, and so you must also teach your dog the proper behavior when they are with you, when you are not in their presence and most especially when there are visitors in your home. Most pet owners who do not train their dogs end up being upset with them or liable to put their pets in dens for safe keeping and thus afflicting their dog and acquiring those unacceptable vices.

Dogs respond by instinct, and this should be learned by dog owners who attempt to train their dogs, and so it is necessary that you also give them treats as a way of awarding them for their good behavior. And it is here where I want to spend some time in enumerating the various healthy treats that you can give your dog.
Lessons Learned from Years with Dogs

The most common dog treat that owners feed their pets are biscuits. Besides biscuits, you can find other dog treats that are as healthy as biscuits. What I want to emphasize is merely, that they are healthier.
Finding Parallels Between Dogs and Life

Yogurt is a sweet treat nearly akin to ice cream that all dogs love, but more superior in a sense because yogurt contains probiotics or substances that stimulates the growth of microorganisms that will help improve digestion of your pet, and aid them in fighting diseases.

Another healthy treat is vegetables that are rich in fiber. Since they contain high levels of fiber, they can help with constipation, diarrhea, and weight management. You can get these products from specialized pet shops.

K9 Glucosamine chews is another healthy treat found in pet shops. A glucosamine chew will be good for your older dog if you vet prescribes a daily regimen, instead of giving it a pill. You dog will enjoy the treat more since it is tastier and more filling to have a chew than a pill.

You can give your dogs dental chews for their dental health. These chews have a good taste, and they are formulated to encourage the natural chewing instincts of dogs which also makes them exercise their jaws at the same time. They are also formulated to help support healthy teeth and gums and reducing tartar.

Although these treats have the same utility as the ones given in dog training, the value is not the same. So a responsible dog owners would make use of these multi-functional treats while training their pets so they fulfill the three objectives of keeping them healthy, conditioning them, and training them too.
