Regardless of whether you’re integrating a new puppy into the family or trying to teach your old dog new tricks (yes, despite what they say, you absolutely can!), you need to think about implementing a solid rewards system.

At PawLove, we specialize in providing your dog with the very best healthy chews for that once-a-day reward. While some tasty chews are small enough to serve as training treats, they may not be the most convenient for this purpose and, therefore, should be used as a big reward at the end of a lengthy training session when your pet works extra hard. We always recommend bully sticks and beef gullies as excellent introductory chews for eager puppies.
Let’s face it: Most dogs don’t nail good behavior on day one, and that’s OK. Training is a process, and it should be one that’s enjoyable for you and your pet. As long as you take the time to choose a training treat worthy of all their hard work, and it helps keep them healthy at the same time, you can feel great about your strategy and expect your pet to earn their reward every time!
