Why Treats Are Not Food

We get a lot of questions about treats for dogs, including the ones that we provide.
Treats/training treats / dental sticks etc. should not be confused with the food that you ‘feed’ your dog.

Here are a few tips when choosing treats for your dogs: 

  • Treats should only make a maximum of 10% of the dog’s diet 
  • Choose treats to support your dogs with their nutritional requirements, not to fulfil them.  Please ensure that they are fed a balanced (ideally raw) diet with enough variety to meet their nutritional and behavioural needs. Treats/training snacks can then be used to supplement this but not to replace this. 
  • Choose treats that are as healthy as possible for your dog, but also convenient for your needs, the right size for your dog (or breakable into the size you want). 
  • Look at the ingredients list carefully with regard to any health issues that you might have.
  • Avoid snacks that are high in carbohydrates – as these can be tricky for dogs to digest.

For example, Rocketo Dental Sticks: 37% fat but 0% carbohydrates – dogs only have 1 per day, and they are low volume, and fat is much healthier than carbohydrates for dogs.
