Tanner's Hip Makes a Great Yoga Block
I suppose you see where I'm going with this. Healthy treating really depends on your particular dog and his unique health and activities. Below, I'm going to share some of the best #TreatRight tips from the #TreatRight Twitter Party, held Sunday, October 27 by Event Barkers on behalf of Merrick Petcare:
- Choose treats with no artificial colors or preservatives.
- Your dog will love fresh fruits and veggies and lots of real meat.
- Know where your treats come from. Like Merrick pet food, Merrick treats are USA-made with NO ingredients from China.
- Look for treats that are grain- and gluten free with no corn, wheat or soy.
- Healthy treats can help reinforce good behaviors. Look for treats with nothing artificial.
- When selecting a chewy treat, look for ones with no corn, soy, wheat or sorbic acid.
- When seeking high-proten treats, choose ones with meat as the #1 ingredient, with wholesome fruits and veggies, too.
- Remember that even dental chews count as treats in the calorie department. Merrick Dental Chews clean dog’s teeth with fresh ingredients like alfalfa and parsley to help freshen breath naturally.
- Further, the Merrick Dental Chews are grain free and gluten free with no sorbic acid or sodium copper chlorophyllin.
- When choosing dental treats, choose ones recommended for the size of your dog.
- For the safety of your pets, observation is recommended when giving your pets treats or chews.
- Treats can help boost brainpower, build confidence, reinforce good behaviors and provide bonding moments. They're perfect for encouraging yoga practice!
