Simple, wholesome recipes for dogs of all ages

Training dogs is not just about teaching them commands, it's about building a strong bond and fostering good behaviour. One of the most effective tools in dog training is the use of treats. However, not all treats are created equal, and the importance of using high protein treats cannot be overstated.

  • Firstly, protein is an essential nutrient for dogs, crucial for maintaining their overall health and well-being. By using high-protein treats, we are not only rewarding our furry friends but also providing them with the necessary nutrients to support their active lifestyles.
  • High protein treats are highly palatable and enticing to dogs. When training, it's vital to use treats that capture their attention and motivate them to perform desired behaviours. Try Cooper & Co Air-Dried Treats which are flavourful, satisfying, wholesome and healthy for dogs, making them an excellent choice for training sessions. These are gently air-dried sausage slices, infused with extra beneficial ingredients to support sensitive tummies, shiny coat, puppy training etc. What's more, they are now 2 for £8 in our Mix & Match Offer.
  • Another benefit of high protein treats is their ability to provide sustained energy. Training sessions can be physically and mentally demanding for dogs, especially during more extended or intensive sessions. High-protein treats can help replenish their energy levels, ensuring they stay focused and engaged throughout the training process. Try Cooper & Co Air-Dried Active treats which support energy levels.
  • Using high protein treats can accelerate the learning process. Dogs are more likely to repeat behaviours that are rewarded with high-value treats. By consistently rewarding desired behaviours with high-protein treats, we reinforce those behaviours and encourage dogs to learn faster and more effectively.
  • When choosing high protein treats for training, its essential to select ones that are made from quality ingredients and free from artificial additives or fillers. Look for treats with real meat as the primary ingredient, such as Cooper & Co Air-dried treats which have between 60-90% high quality meat and fish and are a convenient size and texture for using as rewards during training.

In conclusion, incorporating high protein treats into dog training is a smart and effective strategy for promoting learning, maintain health and strengthening the bond between you and your canine companion. By investing in quality treats such s Cooper & Co Air-Dried Treats, you can set your dog up for success and enjoy a harmonious relationship built on trust and positive reinforcement.
