Feeding lots of treats (especially human food) can unbalance the diet and lead to serious health problems such as poor bone growth and obesity. Healthy dog treats can be great training tools but remember that their calories add to your dog’s daily quota. One way to ensure that you don’t overfeed is to measure out your dog’s food at the beginning of the day and then set aside a portion of this for use as treats.
