Are you giving treats to your pet?

.
Very few dog owners don't give them a supplemental treat or reward outside of their usual meals, whether this be simply to give your dog something nice. Treats are an essential part of positive reinforcement, rewards-based training, but you also need to be mindful to balance your dog’s treats with their overall daily calories. If you want to be smart about giving your dog treats, follow some guidelines to avoid adding too many calories to his diet.
Give them too many treats and you won’t just spoil their appetite for actual meals, but you could also make your dog/cat overweight and unhealthy.
You need to be judicious in how you dole out treats, which can get tricky when training your dog, a time when you need to be able to offer as many rewards as possible. Fortunately, there are some excellent low-calorie treat options and even healthy treat options.
Remember that giving a food reward is not the only way to treat or reward your dog. Attention and praise from you, a fun game, a favorite toy, or taking the time to do something that your dog enjoys are all equally as rewarding as giving food, and can help to strengthen your bond with your dog too.

fortune I never wanted to have a dog at home, and it looks I will not change my mind. Good article for pets owners as it is important not only to dogs but other pets also to use supplements.

Deliana @carmen3521 Niciodată nu le-am dat mâncare cu porția la oră fixă...Au în permanență castronelele pline cu apă și bobițe și îți iau cât le trebuie. Când stăm la masă, evident că sunt prezenți și mai primesc câte ceva...😅😅😅
