The Best Treats for Husky Puppies
Giving treats to your furry friends is not only a great way to train them but a great way to let them snack on something once in awhile. However, it’s important that you give your dog the proper treats.
Siberian Huskies are naturally acclimated to live in harsh Arctic conditions. This means that they are able to go for longer periods of time without food. However, this also means that what they eat needs to be full of protein and nutrients. Your average, run-of-the-mill dog treats aren’t going to cut it.
Fortunately, we’ve outlined what you should look for when selecting your treats so that you don’t have to spend endless hours scratching your head in the pet store aisle. Here are three of the best treats for husky puppies!
The Right Type of Biscuits Are Great For Husky Puppies
Dog biscuits are probably the most common form of dog treat known to both man and dog. The reason they’re so popular is because they’re easy to carry, easy to break (for training) and are relatively cheap when compared to other treats. But, always remember to read the list of ingredients.
They should be all-natural and contain a high percentage of protein content (like fish, chicken, beef, etc.) as well as a good amount of vegetables and other high-nutrient ingredients. There should also be a low percentage of things like corn, rice or any other grain related ingredient.
A good rule of thumb is that the first 3-4 ingredients should be a mixture of meat, vegetables or fruit. If it’s not, then leave it on the shelf. We recommend Benefit Biscuits
Jerky Is Perfect For Husky Puppies
Jerky or any dehydrated meat chew is a great treat for husky pups, especially when they’re teething. If you don’t want things in your house destroyed, just give them one of these and it’ll keep them occupied for hours.
The great thing about jerky treats is that they’re usually 100% meat without any additives, but the downside is they can cost more than your average dog treat. They come in all different meat cuts including turkey, chicken, beef, pork, duck, salmon, etc. Really any type of meat. But remember to always look at the ingredients for sneaky additives.
They’re packed with protein, tasty and equally fun for your dog to chew on! There is also the option of creating jerky treats at home. By simply, baking meat fillets in the oven for several hours and letting them dry out. It’s simple and you can be sure there’s no additives in them. If you’re going to buy jerky for your husky puppy there isn’t much better than Alaskan Salmon Jerky. But they are kind of expensive.
Dental Treats Are Important For Husky Puppies
Dental treats are fun but also helpful in keeping your husky’s teeth pearly white. Food build up and all around bacteria can sit in between your husky’s teeth and eventually cause gum infections or sores.
Some people take to brushing their dog’s teeth but dental treats work just as effectively. There are specific treats dedicated to this task but chewing on bones can also help them loosen up any bits of food stuck in their mouth.
It is advised that you don’t give husky puppies hooves or processed white bones because they may break the dog’s teeth. If your puppy is teething, it’s also advisable that you take the bone away from them from time to time. Prolonged chewing can cause dental fatigue and even damage in some serious cases.
