The Importance of Healthy Dog Treats

Not only are there more options for now, the quality has improved significantly in recent years as well. And with the Internet boom, finding the best biscuits and bones for your puppy is as easy and tapping a few keystrokes.

It’s important to note that many pet owners are now advocates of healthier dog treats for monetary reasons as well. They realize that, while they tend to cost more, healthy treats and food actually save money in the long run. A healthier diet over a lifetime results in less disease and illness in senior dogs, which means a smaller vet bill.

It’s never too early to start feeding healthy dog treats. Puppy training often includes using a treat to reward good behavior. In one session alone, you might give your little trainee 6-10 rewards, maybe even more. Make them healthy biscuits, cookies, or bones, and you’ll be giving your pet a nutritious foundation for a better life.

Experiment with several different kinds of dog treats and you’ll quickly learn which are your puppy’s favorites. Unlike humans when we diet, dogs seem to enjoy the healthier biscuits and bones every bit as much as the “bad” ones. If only we were so lucky!
