Today’s PetMeds Spotlight is on Dog Treats. When considering dog treats, there are a few things to keep in mind. First thing to consider is what the treat is made of, dog treats made with human grade ingredients (honey, peanut butter, vanilla, and yogurt) can be an incredible incentive and in the correct amounts, not harmful to use in training.
If being used for training, make sure your selection is something easy to carry in a pocket or plastic bag. Greasy treats can ruin your clothes or make for an unpleasant experience when giving them.
If being used as an everyday treat or for training, make sure the treats are intended for dogs and given in the correct amounts as to not to cause a problem with weight gain or digestive upset.
