Tip & How-To about Dogs

When to give dogs their treats

Dogs love their treats! Whether it's a biscuit or a bone, treats are great way to satisfy a dog. Basically, there are different times that dogs can receive their treats. There isn't an exact method to giving dog treats, so it's basically up to you how many times per day or week you give your dog its treat. The most common time for dogs to receive treats is while getting trained. During training, dogs receive treats as a reward for doing what the trainer asks them to do. Another time dogs should receive treats is when you leave the house for the day and they stay alone. Instead of becoming sad and lonely, dogs can actually become excited about you leaving because they know they will get a special treat. Besides these two times, you can also give your dog a treat after it finishes his meal. This way they will be able to finish their meal with a tasty dessert. One thing to make sure is to keep treats on the low. Make sure your dog gets at least 90 percent of his diet from healthy, high quality commercial food.
