Spoiling Your Dog With Guilt-Free Ways

We all can agree that dogs are really our best friend, at least in the animal world. Statistics show that in the American households, 45 percent of them has a dog as part of their families displaying a lot of friendship going on. There are many things that dogs can help us and make us happy, from the tricks they do, to guiding partially sighted individuals, to rescuing people in distress and so on to show how smart they are. But even with this intelligence, they are innocent enough accept any treat or begging for it. Due to this, health and dental issues are experienced by many dogs due to being overweight and having the wrong diet.

It is true that once our dogs would fix to us those pleading eyes, it is difficult for us to resist in giving them pet scraps or have them share our snacks of chips or cake. Your best solution, if you are on the brink of giving in to spoil and indulge your dog even if your head is nagging you that it is not right, is to have some alternatives of treats.

Dogs take a little time to get used to different treats and to act on words or phrases related to those treats, but it pays off in the long term if you invest your time and effort in teaching them.

Let us take a look at some easy alternatives to treat and spoil your dogs without their health being damaged.

Generally, dogs love food, but giving him or her your attention is just as welcoming, and so this is our number one alternative idea. If you know of an area that your dog seems to enjoy going, then take this as an alternative of the treats by bringing your pet there and use words or phrase that will make your pet associate it as another kind of treat.

Another alternative treat is to give your pet a new toy because just like children, dogs never tire of being introduced to a new thing to play with. If you can stand the noise of squeaky toys, then this a great alternative treat for most of dogs, and just take notice if it comes to a point of becoming a choke hazard. Many dogs love a tug of war pull toy and even something cuddly that they can snuggle with, and you can find several toys that are affordable.

Your next idea is to have healthy treats for your pet like cold cooked sweet potato and carrots, which are not typical doggie treats but they love too on top of the vitamins they get.
