Dental Health

Natural Dental treats for dogs are a great way to keep them occupied for hours whilst keeping your dog's teeth and gums healthy. Dental treats for dogs help to fight bad breath and are perfect for dogs who suffer from food intolerances because many of them are single ingredient dog treats. Our healthy dental treats are made from high quality ingredients so they help to clean your dog's teeth in addition to being extremely tasty.

Our Natutripe tripe bones, made from 100% pressed trip are hard and long lasting, a healthy alternative to raw bones. We also stock hard Soopa dental sticks for dogs, Gnawrolls dental treats and Eurostars (the same shape as a Dentastix but without the cheap ingredients), to name a few.

Motivators

Using treats as a training tool is very common: rewarding good behaviour (positive reinforcement) is excellent for training out undesirable behaviour.

Dogs enjoy interaction, fun, and the outdoors so combining all three with a healthy training treat can create a fun day out for the both of you and your dog will get plenty of exercise. Use training treats sparingly and choose a high value treat your dog can't resist. We find Feelwells liver training treats go well, My Itchy Dog duck and neem slices and Downward Dog kidney dog treats are irresistible.

If you decide to use treats for training you can shop our healthy training treats, they're great for puppies too. One thing to remember when training is to be consistent: if you use treats to enforce a rule make sure that rule always applies even when you take the treats away.
