Healthy dog treats – Dogs love a treat as much as we do!
Little treats for your dogs
Dogs love a treat as much as we do, and we love to give them treats! Make them healthy dog treats… We know how bad treats can be for us, it is the same for your dog. It is important to make sure we make their treats as healthy as possible.
Dogs love a treat as much as we do!
Healthy dog treats can be used to reinforce good behaviour or as a training reward and, of course, just to brighten your dog’s day, give them variety and show them you love them!
But just like dog foods, not all dog treats are made equal. Some lack nutritional value and are filled with junk ingredients and artificial additives, so it’s important to choose natural, healthy dog treats for your faithful hound! Did you know we stock raw treats at Rose Cottage. WE want to treat our doggies as much as you do. But only the healthiest to take care of their diets.
What to look for in a healthy dog treat
A healthy dog treat should:
- Be free from artificial colours, preservatives and flavourings, to which your dog may be sensitive
- Contain no added sugar
- Contain no ‘fillers’—bulking ingredients with no nutritional value
- Contain simple, natural ingredients carefully prepared to preserve their nutrients and flavour
- Be delicious—and keep your dog coming back for more!

Choosing the best natural dog treats for your dog depends on the purpose of the treat and the needs of your dog.

The Three Rules of Treating Your Dog
- Don’t overtreat. It feels like kindness, but it can be cruelty. Obesity makes your dog prone to numerous serious health conditions and puts strain on their joints. Treats should never account for more than 10% of your dog’s daily calories.
- Choose natural dog treats that will enhance and supplement your dog’s diet.
- If they don’t come in a resealable pouch or pot, store your dog’s treats in a sealable container to keep them fresh and full of flavour. We are happy to say we now sell both jars and refills so your dog can always enjoy a natural treat, the best part we are offering a subscription service and we can deliver to your door!
Finally, if you want to know if your dog approves of the natural dog treats you’ve chosen, just look for a twitching nose, raised ears and a wagging tail when you bring them out.
They’re sure signs of doggy approval!
