Regular Dog Treats

How regular treats can help dog training

Many dog owners and teachers agree or disagree with the fact that treats can help your dog during dog training. However, we as Vetsend think that treats can work in a good way. A substitute for using snacks can be voice commands / rewards or dog puzzles and games. Obviously, the ultimate goal that you envision when training your dog with rewards such as dog treats is to enhance the learning capability. Not all snacks are suited for training your dog, particularly when snacks are hard to chew on. These chew snacks for dogs are great for their teeth but can be less equipped for training. An example of chewing treats are those from Farm Food Rawhide Dental.

Joy is the key to learning

As with humans, dogs love to receive attention when they complete a task. This is especially true when training your pooch. The best way to reward your four-legged friend is by providing them with something that they are not accustomed to receive (such as training treats). Of course, a reward does not always have to be in the form of food or snacks. You can also give your furry friend a hug or pat on the head. Try to find out what works best for your dog and make sure that training stays fun and enjoyable for the both of you!

Healthy and balanced dog treats

Every dog loves to receive a treat or snack. However, some dogs have an easier time digesting treats than others. This is why Vetsend offers a wide range in balanced diet snacks for dogs. Dogs suffering from allergies or hypersensitivity can use Healthy Dog Treats such as TROVET Multi Purpose Treats MHT (Hydrolysed Protein) Dog. These rewards are composed of rice and fish as an easily digestible carbohydrate and single protein source. Special treats can be used for common symptoms in dogs, such as: food allergies, food intolerance or renal failure.

Make sure to bring biscuits with you every time you go for a walk and ensure you can always reward your dog when he shows good behaviour. Once your dog is making progress and is performing commands better, it would be sensible to cut down on the rewards given to approx. 25% of the time. Keep up the good work and learn together!
