Over the years we have
seen the important roles dogs can play in our lives, from being a canine
athlete and personal trainer to assisting with therapy and helping us on the
job, but one of most important roles a dog can play in our lives is being a
member of the family. There is no question about it, we love our dogs.
One of the many ways
we demonstrate this love is by rewarding our dogs with treats. Treats are a
great way to express how we feel, reward them when they do something good and
can also provide them hours of enrichment.
Surveys have shown
that 56% of dog owners admit to giving their dog treats as a form of affection*,
however there is a downside to providing too many treats in our pets diet, and
that is the added calories.
