Can Puppys have treats?

Posted by Brent Cochran


We get asked this question a lot.  And basically, it's ok to give your puppy treats as long as you follow some basic guidelines.

  1. Don't over use treats!   Treats should only be given when trying to train a puppy.   They make excellent positive reinforcers for a job well done.
  2. What works for adult dogs, doesn't necessarily work for puppies! Puppies tummies are much more sensitive and should only be given limited ingredient, softer treats.
  3. What should I give them?  The best kinds are small, soft treats (such as our Sit Treats) or things like jerky that are easily digestible.
  4. Don't be afraid to give a puppy treats!   They love them and as long as they are given in a proper way, they are get motivators AND will make your puppy very happy.
