What Are Raw Dog Treats and Their Benefits?
Raw dog treats are delicious, natural treats that can complement a well-balanced raw diet. From meat covered raw dog treats, to bones and chews, raw dog treats offer both a great taste and an additional boost of nutrition to your dog's diet.
Unlike some dog treats on the market which contain artificial flavours and preservatives which can be potentially harmful, raw dog treats are all-natural treats which appeal to the instincts of dogs.
For cleaning dogs' teeth or as a simple treat, raw dog treats are great natural chews which will keep your dog happy and healthy.
Why Choose Raw Dog Treats?
Satisfy your dog's instincts
Dogs are descended from wolves which means that their instinct to chew on bones remains in them. Chewing on bones provides dogs with protein and other nutrients. When they gnaw away and lick, endorphins are also released in their brain which helps to calm them and keep them happy. Therefore, the firmer the chew, the more gnawing and licking requires and the more endorphins are released.
Variety and stimulation
As you well know, dogs are very intelligent and need mental stimulation to release energy and keep them calm. Dogs enjoy challenges such as pulling the meat from bones and working for the marrow inside the bones. The wide variety of raw dog treats will keep them interested in their food and enjoying the different textures available.
Ideal for Training
It comes as no surprise that dogs are very driven by food. Training them requires food that they enjoy but it also means that they munch their way through a lot of treats.
A variety of raw dog treats are very healthy and therefore can be given as a training reward without worry of your dog gaining too much weight. Ideal as a high value training reward.
Help Clean Teeth
Chewing from bones is a great way to clean dog teeth. As their teeth are evolved to rip meat from bones and their jaws able gnaw through bones, raw dog treats help to scrape away plaque from teeth and strengthen jaws.
