Too Many Dog Treats

It’s totally normal to give your furry friend treats every now and then. They certainly come in handy with dog training or rewarding good behaviour. Challenging your pooch to complete tasks/games using a treat as their prize is also great for calming hyperactive behaviour and a fun way for you to bond with them. 

Substituting nutritional food with treats, however, won’t benefit your pooch more than it will create potential health problems. So, if you are going to treat them with a little something, make sure it doesn’t interfere with their normal diet. 

As a rule of thumb, make sure any treats you do feed them don’t exceed 10% of their daily calorie intake. Too much of the good stuff can lead to gastrointestinal diseases and obesity. Plus, it could lead to unruly behaviour if they get too used to being rewarded.
