Treats are an excellent way to help train your dog, enforce positive behavior, or to tide your pooch over until his next meal. Pet obesity is on the climb, so make sure and give snacks and treats sparingly and responsibly.
Blue Buffalo Exuberance Tasty Chicken Jerky
Blue Exuberance Natural Jerky Dog Treats, by Blue Buffalo, are a fine combination of natural farm-raised chicken, natural sugar cane juice, vitamin E supplement, salt, flaxseed (natural source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids), vitamin A, and rosemary. That’s all — no grains, byproducts, corn, wheat, soy, added fillers, hormones, antibiotics, or unpronounceable junk included. Not only do dogs go wild for the taste, Blue Exuberance Natural Jerky Dog Treats help maintain healthy eyes, skin, and coat. Made in the U.S.A.

The Honest Kitchen Pecks Cookies
Finally, the perfect training treats. While learning new skills, Buffalo and blueberry Pecks, made by the Honest Kitchen, are crunchy, yet easy to chomp. The naturally sweet treats are ideal for rewarding positive behavior. Because each Peck is merely 0.6 calories, the focus can be placed on positive reinforcement, without the worry of your dog consuming too many calories. Small to large dogs are able to safely consume these yummy treats. Pecks are small enough to work in conjunction with many interactive pet puzzles, or to be coated in peanut butter, then stuffed into your dog’s favorite rubber toy.
