Buyer’s Guide for Chews and Treats
Last Updated April 2019As a pet owner, at some point you may have felt overwhelmed by the huge amount of dog treats on the market today. Selecting treats or chews for your canine can be a tough decision, due to the large number of varieties. Chewing is an essential behavior for your dog. It is crucial for their dental health, as well as their mental health. Chewing can alleviate boredom, eliminate problems in behavior, in addition to being used for a training tool. Various treats and chews found online have a specific purpose, such as cleaning your dog’s teeth. These types of chews continue to grow in variety and popularity. Other than just tasting good, these types of treats are designed to serve a purpose. Some examples include improving joint health, dental health, pain relief, or stress relief.
Here are some tips for picking the right treats for your dog:
- Selecting a dog treat that was made in the USA is highly-recommended. Consider the reputation of the company producing it.
- Check out the nutrient profile, making sure that there are no artificial ingredients.
- If you are concerned about grains being allergenic, steer clear of them.
- Consider how many calories are in the product. Keep in mind that the amount of treats you give should not comprise more than 10% of your dog’s daily calorie intake.
- Select the type of treat that your dog will enjoy most. Some doggies like dry kibbles, while other dogs favor cookies or biscuits.
