How Many Treats Should You Give Your Dog?

Snacking is fun! And we want our dogs to enjoy snacking as much as we do. But about how many treats can our dogs have in a day? Here are some things you need to consider before letting your furry buddy snack on his favorite all-natural pet treats. 

1. How often he noms

Can’t say no to those big ol’ puppy eyes? Do you easily give in when your furry pal begs for a treat?  

Too much snacking can be unhealthy for dog, same as humans! So don’t feel bad if you need to hold back on the pampering. If you really want to reward him for being a good boy all day, just remember to keep the treats at about 10 percent of his daily diet and you’re all good.  

2. How often he plays

Well, getting your dog to do more exercise doesn’t mean you can pamper him with more snacks. But at least, taking him out to walk and play can help him work out the snacks he ate. Plus, it helps you be active and move your body too, so it’s a win-win! 

3. Snacking done right
