Treats for puppies: ideal for training and for in between
When your new family member moves in with you, they have probably only been fed complete food up to this point. Puppy treats are usually only used when training begins. Nothing motivates your little dog to follow commands more than the right reward. But what is a good puppy snack for in-between nibbles? Here you can find out which treats you can use to give your puppy positive reinforcement in everyday life.
The training begins: now it is time to find healthy treats for your puppy
Sit, down, come, stay and here are all commands that are part of dog training. But getting a puppy’s attention is sometimes not easy. Loving words and petting are positive reinforcement. But you can really entice and motivate him with tasty snacks. The most important thing is to get the timing right, i.e. directly after the command.
What snacks and treats are especially ideal for puppies?
As with the complete food, make sure the composition is natural, with animal proteins and a low fat content. Especially if the dog has food allergies, you should avoid cereals and artificial additives. The size of the puppy treats is also important: small puppy snacks are ideal for small and medium-sized breeds, while larger dogs can be spoiled with larger chunks.
However, the small healthy treats are not suitable as an activity or for cleaning puppies’ teeth. There are other puppy snacks such as chewing bones or dental sticks that not only clean the teeth and contribute to dental health, but also strengthen the chewing muscles. Purely natural products, such as dried beef jerky, are also a varied nibbling pleasure, easy to chew and very digestible.
It is all in the mix: watch the amount of puppy treats you give each day
Even with successful training, you should still be mindful of the daily food ration. Puppy treats should only be a small part of the food source. There are several reasons for this: On the one hand, your dog might refuse the complete food over time and on the other hand, excessive weight in connection with rapid growth, a deficiency supply or an over-supply can lead to health problems. As a rule of thumb, your puppy’s treats should not make up more than 10 to a maximum of 15 percent of the daily food ration.
