Dental Health

Natural Dental treats for dogs are a great way to keep them occupied for hours while promoting healthy gums and teeth. These treats help to fight bad breath and are perfect for dogs that suffer from food intolerance 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 Antos antler bars are long lasting, filled with marrow, and are a healthy alternative to raw bones. They are only collected annually when naturally shed by deer, in the UK. Our antler bars for dogs are packed with important minerals and are not empty like a lot of traditional rawhide treats. We also stock hard Guru bones, Gnawrolls dental treats and Natutripe 100% pressed tripe bones, 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, JR chicken training treats and Downward Dog kidney dog treats are irresistible .

If you decide to use treats for training you can find our healthy training treats here, 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.
