A few words on how to find best treats for puppies

We all love rewarding our puppies. Whenever it's for a good behavior or training. It's also helping to build a bond between a pup and their pet parents.

But can puppies have treats? Yes, they can but you need to be more careful when selecting treats for them because they have more sensitive stomachs than adult dogs. You also don't want to give too many treats to your puppy as overfeeding them may result in excess weight and health problems even extending later in their life.

Best Treats for Puppies

Features of best treats for puppies:

We recommend considering these features when choosing treats for your puppy:

- Healthy - It’s a truth often forgotten that dog treats should be healthy and perhaps even able to supplement your dog’s normal diet with added health benefits. There are treats with omega fatty acids supporting overall health, glucosamine and vitamins to support all active pups and many more. Puppies have more sensitive stomach than adult dogs so make sure you're going for a healthy reward.

- Tasty - We all love rewarding our puppies. Dogs are generally food-focused and puppies see any food as a potential reward. Whenever you're training your puppy or rewarding them, make sure you choose a treat they love!

- Convenient - Many pet parents opt for homemade treats and this is great if you have time and you're ready to put in the effort. If not, don't worry there are plenty of healthy dog treats on the market right now.

- Calorie Intake - Puppies can sometimes get too many calories from their treats. Make sure you make a note of additional calories and decrease your dog's normal calorie intake. You can also choose lower calorie treats meaning you’ll need to subtract less from their dinner.

- Texture - Some of the available treats may be too hard for your puppy's sensitive teeth. Use the rule of thumb: If you push your thumbnail into a treat and it leaves a mark, that’s a safe treat.

- Your Puppy's Individual Preferences/Conditions - No size fits all. If you're unsure which treats you should give to your puppy, ask a vet. They will be able to help you choose the best one for your pet's needs.
