    Default What kind of treat do you feed?

    Good Day Bullie Friends,

    We know that there have been lots of posts and discussion about the type of dog food that we feed. And I know that I have seen threads in the past about the types of treats as well. So It's time to bring that up again.

    I know that you are careful about feeding a premium dog food. What about the type of treat do you feed? If you are feeding a grain free dog food, is your treat also a grain free? Are you still having problems with digestion (poo, skin, etc) and wonder why? Check the type of treat you are feeding. It could ALSO be part of the problem.

    Good Day~

    Stig gets homemade treats ... dehydrated meat ... mainly beef lung. He's on the raw diet so we realized that his treats need to match it. We used to give him fruits before but he stopped liking them for some reason.

    We pick Princess Gracie's treats carefully. No sense in giving her premium food and give her trash for treats. At the least we use grain free but lately we have been giving her sweet potato treats. We also cut them up into small pieces; she 'thinks' she is getting more... LOL

    Right now, I have a small container that I keep some of her food in, and I use her food as treats. She goes crazy when I give her pieces of food from it and I know it's not going to jack up her system.

    At some point, I'll start testing with other items, to see how she does (fruit, veggies, etc...) but for now, she loves getting food from the little box.

    Lucy actually has bits of her kibble as treats and she is happy with that....Like you said no point getting a premium grain/wheat free food then go and mess up her system with treats.
    plus the odd slice of banana, raspberry or blackberry

    We don't do a lot of treats. Usually small pieces of frozen liver. Every now and again, I let them have a SMALL bite of banana or a baby carrot because they love it.

    Besides some fruits occasionally, we feed FROMM and give them treats from FROMM.

    we're still potty training Lola outside, and teaching her basic tricks...heel and come are the two worst right now. Nevertheless, she gets treats quite often. boiled chicken breast, chunks of string cheese, apple, grain free wellness treats - venison flavor. we like venison too! just gave Lola two raspberries then she pooped on the carpet. not sure if the two events are connected or not.

    They love their fruit--sliced apples are a favorite, as well as pears, and pineapple chunks. Also recently tried Blue Wilderness grain free biscuits. I am guilty however of giving them Milk Bone biscuits...only b/c i bought a 10lb box, oh, not too long ago......when i wasn't so strict on the grain free part of their diet.
