The Pet Warehouse have a huge range of dog treats to choose from, including natural dog treats such as Shankie's which are naturally sourced venison dog treats for your dog. We also stock chocolate drops and branded dog treats such as Bakers Healthy Hearts which are low in fat and packed with valuable nutrients that will help keep your dog healthy.
An important factor to consider when buying treats is to select the right one for your dog, as dogs get older they do not have the strength to chew the same due to old age and like us there teeth become loose and brittle, at the Pet Warehouse we recognise this and stock a range of more manageable chews for the more senior dog.
We also stock dog treats and chews for puppies and larger dogs that require something a bit more substantial when it comes to chewing (which always better than your slipper or chair arm!).
It is important to remember that dog treats should only make up around 10% of a dogs diet and should be given as a 'treat' and not a substitute for a main meal, see our range of dog foods to include with your dog treats to ensure that your dog stays in tip top shape by clicking on one of the categories on this web page, should you need any advice then one of our expert team of advisors will be happy to help you and direct you to make sure you have all the right dog supplies.
Well it all depends on the individual dog, as for lets say a puppy or young adolescent dog then dog treats can be given more frequently. The idea of giving treats is to imprint certain rules of behavior on the dogs mind, while keeping the experience fun and of course rewarding. The dog treats that you give should be small and also not too often to avoid over indulging or filling up between the dogs main meal as this can often result in weight problems and health issues if ignored.
The same attributes apply just as much when choosing human food when denoting quality in ingredients within dog food or dog treats, you need to watch out for heavily processed ingredients and look for naturally sourced organic ingredients within the dog treats manufacturing process. An example is to look for fresh ingredients and not by products of these ingredients for example "wheat" is better than "wheat flour" and "wheat flour" is better than "wheat germ" the more processed and reconstituted it is the more additives it may have within it and also the less nutritious it becomes the more processed it is, it as simple as that!
While some dog treat manufacturers may argue that their oversight of foreign ingredient providers is reliable, we strongly prefer domestic sourced ingredients for our dog treats. The only exception may be those ingredients that are near-impossible to obtain from UK sources even so, if we found a treat that contained domestically sourced free-range, organic venison, we'd favour it over a product containing free-range, organic venison from another country.
