Diet and nutrition is an area in which even the most loving and conscientious dog owners are guilty of neglecting their dog’s best interests. The market is flooded with various pet food brands. The most expensive isn’t always the best and it’s important that we adapt to healthier options if we are able to. Understanding your dog’s health and conditions will help prevent illnesses and other behavioural problems.
When it comes to your dog’s overall health, despite any genetic predispositions and/or present conditions, you have control over the most important aspects of his/her health and longevity – an optimal diet and sufficient exercise. Given their history on Earth and their genetic inheritance, it makes sense that dogs are opportunistic feeders – they will eat as much as they can when they can. It’s up to you to monitor their intake in quantity and quality.
At WagWorks we use good quality Oven-Baked Tradition, iTi Biti, Addiction and Merrick as treats. We believe in a healthy approach. The training usually involves continuous intake of treats, so the appropriate quantity is pre-packed for each dog per session.
