Throughout your dog's training, there is nothing quite as effective as positive reinforcement by means of a treat. It doesn't really matter how much you love you dog, or how much your dog loves you; a treat is the perfect reward for a job well done.
However, instead of reinforcing a job well done, snacks filled with additives and empty calories can contribute to health and behavioral issues. This can happen in the case of humans as well.
The pure dried meat in Whole Life Pet Treats, unlike most pet snacks of this kind, can be eaten as is or soaked in water to bring out even more flavor and moistness. You can purchase these in beef, liver, cod, or salmon fillets. Wellness Pure Rewards is a healthful dog treat having 95% meat content, and it is free of grain, wheat, and artificial additives.
