Your Dog Deserves @Iams Shakeables Treats #giveaway, CAN, 3/8

Iams Logo Reina and Phoenix are Iams dogs. They also carry the torch of being rescue dogs that had a tough life before becoming members of Journeys of The Zoo.

They were lucky to have food and water let alone treats. That's why I like to spoil them.

With wholesome ingredients, delicious flavours and real meat, Iams Shakeables Soft & Chewy treats is the perfect way to be conscious of their health and,

Show your dog that you love them!

Seeing as Phoenix has colitis, we have to be really careful what we feed him. When I have treats, Reina usually gets most of them. As luck would have it, he can eat real lamb. I can't wait for him to try this recently launched product when we get home.

Here are some things that you should remember when feeding your dog.

Stay Away From Table Scraps. As much as your furry friend loves to hang around the table while you're eating, ready to pounce on anything that may fall to floor, resist the urge to feed table scrapes. Not only is human food potentially toxic to animals, scraps also tend to be high in fat and calories and low in the vitamins and nutrients your pet needs. Treats, like New Iams Shakeables, offer wholesome ingredients full of delicious flavours your pet will love.

Tricks For Treats. Treats can be used for training to get your pet's attention and keep him or her focused. While training, you should use soft, chewy treats that are easy to digest and won't take away from training time.

Timing is Everything. While training your pet, make sure you are rewarding him or her with a treat immediately after performing the correct action. This ensures the reward is associated with the behaviour.

Consistency is Key. Dog training is intense, so choose a day you have a good amount of free time to begin. Pretend you have left the house and stay away for several minutes. Once your dog thinks you're gone and "violates the restricted area," walk in and give a firm "no" or "get down." Direct your dog to his or her bed, and praise him or her for going to it. Repeat this as many times as necessary. Eventually, most dogs will get the hint. Again, consistency is key. This training may have to be repeated periodically over several weeks or even months.

Take Treats With You. Most pets don't stop exhibiting good behaviour after they leave the front door. Whether you're going on a trip, taking a walk, or playing in the park with your pet, treats make great pet travel rewards.

Give Treats In Between Meals. Remember, treats are not a substitute for a meal and should not make up more than 10 to 20 per cent of a dog's daily diet. To avoid filling up your pet before a meal, try giving treats in between your pet's scheduled meal times. If you're training with treats, cut back on meal portions after a session to avoid overeating.

  2. I learnt about anti oxidents

    Antioxidants and Immune Response

    Because antioxidants play a key role in minimizing damage to cells, such as those that make up the immune system, research examined the benefits of certain antioxidants on the immune response of dogs. The results of these studies indicated that antioxidants are important in helping dogs maintain a healthy immune system.

    There are many myths associated with shelter animals that prevent potential pet-owners from considering adoption—that you can’t find adoptable puppies or kittens or purebred dogs or cats, or that shelter animals have been given up because they’re untrainable, for instance—which are not true.

  46. Your dogs are gorgeous. I'm a big pittie fan. I have one of my own, Commander Shepard. She's the third rescue pit bull we've had (our two previous both passed away of natural causes), and we love her to bits. I also used to foster for a bully breed rescue society, so I know the breed very well.. the bad rap is so unfair, as they are such lovely, sweet, loyal dogs. I've probably had 6 or 7 through my house with nary a problem! :)
