To keep bagged treats fresh — and make it a little more difficult for the diligent treat-hound to score — keep the bags sealed. If the seal doesn’t work (often they don’t), use heavy-duty zip lock–type bags or store them in glass or ceramic containers with tightfitting lids.
Dogs love variety, and with the wide array of treats on the market, it’s easy to find a selection that will satisfy most co-pilots.
To determine how many calories a moderately active adult dog living in a temperate climate requires daily, use one of the following formulas:
Body weight 0.75 x 132 = Kilocalories needed (National Research Council)
Body weight 0.75 x 125 = Kilocalories needed (Waltham Centre for Pet Nutrition)
