Treats & Supplements
Feeding treats or snacks is a way for the pet owner and pet to interact and bond. Using treats for puppy training purposes is also common, but excessive treating can potentially lead to the pet becoming overweight.
"Feeding treats is important but remember — all treats count towards the total daily calories. Try to ensure that treats make up no more than 10% of the entire diet."
