How to Pick the Perfect Dog Treat
by Ian Germann
When it comes to picking the perfect treat for your dog, it can be hard to pick with so many different options available. In this blog post, we’ll go over some expert tips to help you find the best treat possible for your pup!
Check the Ingredient List
When it comes to checking a treat’s ingredient list, it’s important to pay attention to the type and quality of ingredients used in the dog treats you’re considering. Look for treats that use whole food ingredients such as real meat (e.g., chicken, beef, turkey), fish, fruits, vegetables and grains. These ingredients provide more nutritional value compared to their processed or artificial alternatives.
Choose Treats Appropriate for Your Dog’s Size and Age
Treat sizes should be considered when buying to avoid choking hazards or over-consumption in your pup. For small dogs, look for treats that are specifically designed for small breeds, often labeled as “mini” or “small dog” treats. Remember that treats should only make up a small portion of your dog’s daily caloric intake, so if you have a small or overweight dog, pick treats that are low in calories to prevent excessive weight gain. Conversely, active or larger dogs may benefit from treats with slightly higher caloric content to maintain a healthy weight.
Older dogs often have dental issues or reduced jaw strength. If this is the case for your pup, softer treats or treats that dissolve easily can be more suitable and easier for them to enjoy.

Take Your Dog’s Preferences Into Account
Every dog has different likes and dislikes when it comes to food, so you might need to try a couple of different options before you find a treat your dog truly loves. For example, some dogs may prefer crunchy treats, while others prefer chewy or soft treats.
