Dog treats & snacks: Small reward for canine foodies
Dogs have a natural urge to chew and bite. Along with toys, special dog treats can also help to satisfy the instinct to chew – and in a particularly enjoyable way. Dog chews come in a wide variety, including versions suitable for all ages and sizes. At bitiba, you can find all kinds of tasty dog treats to give your four-legged friend something to really get its teeth into, as well as bite-sized snacks as dog training rewards.
Which treats are good for dogs?
The best dog snacks are tasty, meaty and free of unnecessary additives like sugar, flavourings or colourings. Since dogs are primarily carnivores, it is important to look for a recipe with a high meat content if you value a natural, species-appropriate diet. High-quality dog treats are defined by high-quality natural ingredients being used in their preparation.
Along with the composition, the shape and consistency of dog treats play a role too. For instance, larger bone-shaped chews with a hard texture are good for keeping dogs occupied chewing for a long time. Small bites that can be eaten quickly are a good choice as reward treats for training or walks.
Don't forget: Your dog should like the taste of its treats. If it rejects a snack, even the highest quality craftsmanship is of no use.
Chews for dogs to support dental care
In our dog shop, we offer a wide range of dental care snacks specially developed to support canine dental and oral hygiene. In principle, chewing is in itself a dental care measure, since it stimulates the flow of saliva and helps to remove impurities through mechanical abrasion. Dental care dog treats often have a special shape, texture and composition to further increase the cleaning effect when chewing.
Which dog treats are suitable for training?
Dog snacks are the best reward for your four-legged friend. Bite-sized treats that are easy to take along, split into portions and eat are recommended for dog training. Here the aim is less to keep your dog occupied than to provide a quick reward for good behaviour.
Should I give preference to grain-free dog snacks?
The main feature of high-quality dog treats is a high meat content. They may also contain selected plant-based ingredients like vegetables or herbs. If you want your dog to follow a grain-free diet, you will find many suitable products at bitiba. Grain and gluten-free dog treats are particularly good for dogs intolerant to them. But if your four-legged friend tolerates food containing grain well, there's nothing against offering it snacks with grain either.
Which dog snacks are suitable for puppies?
Suitable dog snacks for puppies are well tolerated and easy to chew and digest. Treats with a high meat content and, if necessary, plant-based supplements and precious oils are recommended. Natural snacks like rabbit ears or chicken feet are popular treats for young dogs too, because they contain no additives so are mostly well tolerated. It's important to make sure reward snacks are bite-sized so that your puppy can eat them with no issues.
Can cats also enjoy dog snacks?
Since cats and dogs have different nutritional requirements, it's recommended to offer them snacks suitable for their own species. Most dog snacks – especially chews – would in any case be too big and hard for feline mouths.
