Easy Snacks for Your Dog
Our A to Z Challenge letter today is “E” and we are posting ideas on Easy Snacks for Your Dog.
Want an Easy (and healthy) Snack for your pup? We suggest fruits & vegetables. Many of you will say “Oh no, my dog won’t eat vegetables”, but you’ll be surprised – if that’s the only snack they get, I bet they eat it.
We have carrot snacks everyday. Typically it’s our go to mid-afternoon snack to take the edge off just before dinner. In the summer, I put them in the freezer so not only are they nice and crunchy, but they are cooling also. Jack & Maggie love carrots.
We also give them all sorts of other vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, squash – almost anything we are eating they can have.
Fruits are an easy snack as well. Slicing an apple for yourself? Give your dog a slice or two. Jack even loves citrus – oranges & grapefruit.
I know our dogs are Labs and they will typically eat most anything. But you won’t know if you don’t try. Even celery with a smear of peanut butter on it is better than a processed dog biscuit with 25 ingredients and chemicals.
Our best advice is to think natural, just as you do for yourself. Try to give your dog’s the least amount of processed food and that includes their snacks.
Our friends over at Keep the Tail Wagging have a slightly different take on the “E” in Easy. Check out their post on feeding a raw food diet.
