Tricks For Treats: Training Your Dog With Food

Food is a powerful motivator for dogs — which is why it can often be very effective for obedience training.

Why Dogs Eat… And Eat… And Eat…

There’s an old cliché about dogs — they’ll eat everything you put in front of them, whether they’re hungry or not. There may be a grain of truth to it, but not all dogs are voracious eating machines. Some are perfectly content to snack from their bowl when they feel the urge and others will stop when they feel full, not going back for seconds at all.

While many Pack Leaders spend time selecting the right dog food, you may be less choosy when it comes time to selecting a treat — after all, it’s just a little something special to enjoy now and then, right?

Dog Friendly Meatloaf

Meatloaf is a tasty treat for your dog, made even tastier — and more budget-friendly — by supplementing it with less (human) desirable cuts of meat. Organ meats are inexpensive and can be an important component of your dog’s diet.

These may not be at the top of the list for human shoppers, but they’re very popular with dogs — and they’re an important nutritional source. Liver: This is a great source of vitamins A and B,
