What is your dogs favourite treat? Dogs love getting treats. And we love giving our dogs treats! But just like us humans, dogs also tend to take in too much calories from eating snacks. Treats can really add up to an otherwise healthy diet. Limit the treats you give to about 10% of the total amount of calories your dog gets daily. Vegetables and fruit may be a healthy alternative for treats. Also try to avoid giving treats that are hard to chew, like bones. A rule of thumb is to push into a treat with your nail. If it leaves a mark the treat is safe to eat. Consult your veterinarian for proper advise on which vegetables and fruits are suitable for your dog, intake of calories and diets in general! The best treat for your dog is a nice walk, learning something new, playing or just talking to him. Your attention is what a dog really craves for.
