Choosing the Right Dog Treat

Treats can prove invaluable in rewarding positive behavior and in reinforcing behavior learned during training. They're also a fun, inexpensive way to show your dog you love him. When choosing a treat, be sure to consider:

  • Intended use - if you plan to use treats during training, smaller treats are a good choice. They're quickly consumed and provide minimal distraction from training tasks.
  • Frequency - if you plan to treat your dog often, consider smaller, lower-calorie treats which will help her stay slim.
  • Age & Health - puppies often prefer smaller treats, and seniors with sensitive teeth often prefer soft treats. Dogs with food sensitivities/allergies can benefit from hypoallergenic treats.
  • Pooch’s Preferences - treats are available in several different shapes, sizes, and flavors sure to fit your dog's unique tastes.

Whether you are training, rewarding or simply treating, we stock a complete range of treats:

    • Nylabones - A long time favorite, Nylabones provide the chewing satisfaction of real bones, without the risk of splintering, cracking or impaction. They provide strong chewing resistance for maximum jaw exercise, have great flavor, and are safe and non-toxic.
