Organic Wheat-Free Treats
Did you know that wheat is one of the leading causes of illness in dogs? Not all dogs are allergic or react poorly to wheat. However, those that do will usually end up sick, nauseated, and downright miserable after consuming it. If you’re pretty sure that your dog has a wheat allergy, or just want to ensure that your pet consumes the healthiest treat on the market, consider organic wheat-free dog treats. Wheat-free treats are naturally healthy and are available online and in just about every pet store you can think of. Most are baked using USDA certified organic grains. You can find them in as many flavors as the regular variety including bacon, “breath-freshener”, beef, turkey, chicken, carrot banana, peanut butter, carob, etc.
Gourmet Dog Treats
Maybe you’ve never thought of giving your dog a gourmet doggy treat, but rest assured that they do exist. Gourmet dog treats are usually much tastier than organic or natural ones. Some of them are dipped in artificial chocolate flavor and vanilla, while others have been professionally baked to taste just like ice cream. Although these particular treats are not something you would want to give to your dog every day, they’re wonderful for birthdays and make a great occasional treat. The good news is that there are also organic gourmet dog treats as well as wheat-free, providing every pouch with something to look forward to.
Homemade Dog Treats
If you have the time and the supplies, you might want to consider making your own. Some of the common ingredients include mashed sweet potatoes, apple puree, organic rye flour, organic barley flour, cinnamon, water, peanut butter, Parmesan cheese, milk, eggs, etc. As you can see, you can easily create some of the most tasty dog treats using some very basic recipes. A lot of pet-owners who want to save money usually prefer this route, as well as those who have dogs with diabetes and/or allergies.
Dog treats serve as a great way to let your pet know that you care. They are also a great way to ensure that your pet is obtaining all of his required nutrition. In addition, they can also help you to train your pet. For example, a lot of dog owners will use treats as a way to train their pets to sit, rollover, as well as use the bathroom outside. No matter what type of reward you choose to give to your pet, it’s always comforting to know that there is a great, huge selection of tasty and healthy treats available.
