Dogs are also allowed to snack now and then – but only if the basic diet is right. It must be ensured that your dog is getting the right amount of all the important nutrients through daily feeding alone. Read here how you can treat your dog to a little treat without risking health problems.
It is important that the dog does not consume any harmful food. This also applies to small treats that are rarely fed. Human food is often too spicy for the dog’s stomach. That is why we only recommend delicacies that are specially made for dogs to pamper your four-legged friend. With the right ingredients, you can also make dog biscuits yourself.
Which treats you choose naturally depends on you and your dog’s taste. Treats made for dogs have the advantage that you can often see the ingredients exactly.

Even if your dog is allowed to be pampered every now and then, you should generally use the treats sparingly. Dog owners often keep track of how much they have actually given the dog. Treats are real calorie bombs: If the dog gets too much, it can quickly become overweight.
Tip: Put the appropriate amount of treats for your dog on a plate in the morning. Only feed this amount throughout the day. If the plate is empty, no more is refilled. This way you automatically get a feeling for how much you have really already fed and keep track of things.

In dogs, too, love goes through the stomach. But you can also show your dog your love by playing time together or strengthen the bond with him through other things. Because spending time with the owner is often the greatest gift for dogs.
