We all love our dogs just the way they are. But sometimes, it’s easy for them to pack on extra pounds for one reason or another. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t treat them and make them feel extra special and loved. Here are four healthful ways you can treat your dog without worrying too much about his weight.
Dogs love the crunchy sweetness of raw carrots and they’re great for their teeth. Bite-size baby carrots are a good choice or you can slice whole carrots into two-inch sticks.
2. Air-popped popcorn
Hold the butter and salt.
3. Green Beans
Choose either frozen, raw or canned no-salt-added green beans. They’re a great low-calorie snack
4. A new toy or a long play session
Squeaky plush toys or hard rubber chew toys are great substitutes for treats, as is a fun game of fetch or Frisbee.
