Want to save on dog treats? I have a simple tip that will save you hundreds of dollars over the course of your dog’s life!
We have an 11-month-old chocolate lab puppy who I’ve been training for many of those months. Most often her reward is a small treat or a pat on the head. Like most dogs, I find she responds best and listens well when a treat is involved.
We first started buying Zuke’s Mini Naturals Dog Treats, and found them for a great price on Amazon. Our dog responded well and loved her treats while training, but every few weeks we needed to re-order. $8 for a 16-ounce bag was rather pricey.
Recently I discovered something I think would benefit most dog owners who reward their pets for good behavior. Our dog loves regular dog food as treats. A different brand than her regular food keeps her interest. She will do anything I ask for just one morsel.
We found that our dog really likes Rachael Ray Nutrish Just 6 Limited Ingredient Dry Dog Food, 14-Pound Bag for $14.43 shipped. The difference in price is amazing. The dog food “treats” are $1 a pound versus the Zukes at $8 a pound. Over time, this will be quite a savings!
