Treats are the key to a happy pup, an accident-free house, and peace of mind. There are just so many reasons why you should reward your pup with treats: they are great for training, as an afternoon snack, as a boredom buster, and for good ole’ parent-puppy bonding. No matter how many toys you have around, there’s no better way to your pup’s heart than with treats. Well, that is if you know how to shower them with treats while still reinforcing good behavior.
Key to Successful Training
Ever noticed how your pup suddenly stops what he/she’s doing when he hears you open your pantry, or sees you reach for a container, or hears the sound of food pouring out? That’s the power of treats. Dog trainers and vets alike agree that treats are the most influential and powerful “weapon” you can have as a dog parent. To your pup, they’re the equivalent of a good ole’ pat on the back for a job well done. When you give them a command and hand out a treat, their brain automatically registers that in the “positive behaviors to repeat” pile. Keep in mind that if you hold out a treat when they’re doing something “bad” like chewing one of your couch legs, their brain will store this behavior in the same positive pile. So you want to be careful when you’re rewarding your pup with a treat. Only reward your pup for doing something you’ve asked him/her to do.
There’s also good news for you when it comes to treats. They work better than verbal praises. So treats actually save you time and energy while conditioning your pup to perform only good behaviors.
Soothes Painful Gums
Puppies begin teething when they’re around 3 weeks old and stop when they’re 6 months old. The whole process of baby teeth coming, falling off, and then adult teeth coming in is truly a painful process for them. So they look for relief in anything they can sink their teeth into. The best way to survive being chewed on is to redirect them toward a tasty, safe teething treat. The hardness will help lessen the discomfort and keep them occupied and out of trouble.
Keeps Them Busy
Unfortunate for us humans, we can’t just with our pups all day, every day. At some point, we all have to go to work, go out to grab some food, or go out to get out of the house. If you’re working from home, you still have to keep your pup from taking over your zoom meetings or worse, from chewing on your laptop charger as revenge for not getting attention. Luckily, treats are just what you need to keep your little one occupied while you’re busy juggling a busy schedule. Just like during your training session, tell your pup to go to his/her bed and stay, then give him/her a delicious dental chew. Not only will they keep your home accident-free, but they also provide mental stimulation and entertainment and satisfy their instinct to chew.
Improves their Health
We know what you’re thinking, “how can treats improve my pup's health? They’re like junk food!” The trust, not all treats are bad - just some are. You just need to know what to look out for.
A good housekeeping rule is to avoid treats from commercial brands that mass-produce their products. When you mass-produce, your products are highly processed to meet demand and basically secure desirable shelf space at retail stores. Heavy processing basically sucks all the nutrients out of the ingredients and alters the ingredient. What these commercial brands do is go back in at the end and add preservatives/chemicals in the name of nutrients. When these additives come in contact with the altered ingredients, the components become toxic. So when your pup eats one of these treats, it may feel good at the moment but they harm your pup’s health gradually from the inside. The worst part is, with these treats, you may never see your pup’s health declining on the outside. You may think they’re incredibly healthy until one day your vet tells you that their health is at serious health. In fact, studies show that these treats decrease your pup’s life expectancy significantly.
But not to worry, there are healthy treats out there that work to improve your pup’s health and protect them against diseases. Dogsee Chew has a range of puppy treats for every one of your needs.
