Dog Treat – An Overview of Your Pet’s Favorites

Pet industry has grown tremendously in the last decade. People cherish their pets as family members and are willing to spend money on things to keep their pets happy and healthy. One of the largest categories of dog inventory is that the dog treats. Although a discussion of every available brand would be much more information than a single article could cover, we can take a look at the different types of dog treats and the pros and cons of each.

Dry Biscuit Dog Treats

Dry treats are usually less gas-inducing and dogs love them. It is a good idea to offer crispbread only on rare occasions. Some dogs can grow tired of them and become finicky about their snacks.  Dry biscuits are great for travelling because they will not easily be destroyed or smear and, for the most part, the temperature does not affect them much. These healthy dog biscuits stay fresh and ready to eat (as long as you put them in a sealed container to avoid staleness).

Many brands now have dry dog biscuits in all shapes and sizes. Some even add a twist by making them shaped like a cake we humans enjoy. You can easily find a suitable size for your pet, or buy a bigger biscuit and break it down for training rewards.

Rawhide Dog Treats

Rawhide dog treats are very popular among dog lovers. It comes in many forms, from traditional knots and flat "ear" shape to the new baseball and tennis shoe variation. This type of treat usually lasts a little longer, depending on the size of your dog. A small dog could enjoy their rawhide for hours or even days while a larger one might get a solid ten minutes of chew time out of the treat.
