We all know that dogs love meat and that’s probably one of the first things you think of when you want to give your dog a treat. There’s really no doubt about whether a dog will be happy to have a bit of meat for treat, but there are a lot of other things dogs like that you may find a little surprising. Dogs may really enjoy things that you might not expect them to, like fruits and vegetables, for example. Think outside the box a little bit when you want to give your dog a treat and try something new that has more nutritional value than many of the commercially-produced dog treats. You can get the ball rolling with these suggestions.
An apple may not come to mind when you consider giving your dog a treat but since apples are loaded with vitamins and fiber, they make a great snack for dogs. Many dogs will enjoy the taste of an apple, but make sure you only feed him or her the good part. The seeds and other parts may be toxic to dogs so never feed them the seeds, stem, leaves or apple core.
