Treats are great for owners to give some extra love to their dogs, whether that is for dog training or with no purpose at all. Treats are fun, delicious and they strengthen the bond between the puppy and the owner. Some treats have various health benefits, vitamins and minerals, while others are good for cleaning their teeth. Almost anything can become a treat, whether that’s a biscuit, a piece of cheese, a dog snack or a piece of meat from your own plate. Some options are better than others, and in this article we’ll find out what are the healthiest dog treats?
What Makes A Dog Treat Healthy?
Unfortunately, many treats are high in fats, sugar and various colourings and preservatives. It’s quite easy to lose track of how many treats you give to your dog, especially when doing dog training and having to reward each positive action.
So the calories in treats can add up quickly and can lead to weight gain. Obesity can put the dogs at risk of various diseases, so if your dog has this problem you should look for low caloric treats.
Other dogs have sensitive stomachs and even pancreatitis, which makes table scraps a very bad choice for treats, as human food is usually high in fat. So if your dog is constantly begging at the table and it’s hard to resist, it’s better to keep it out of the kitchen when eating, or to give him low fat, healthy treats.
A healthy dog treat should:
– Have a great smell and taste (not according to your own tastes, but to those of dogs)
– Have nutrients, dental benefits or both
– Not include any added fillers, colourings or preservatives
– Be low in calories
Unfortunately, many dog treats do not fulfil all of these conditions, and are packed with preservatives and chemicals that can upset your dog’s stomach or cause other health issues.
