I wear a jacket which has multiple pockets so that I can dispense treats instantly and easily.
Also treats should be small and soft and easy to chew. Something the dog cannot spit out. I think paté would be ideal but that's a bit messy to carry around and how do you give it to the dog? I'll have to experiment.
Remember dogs are carnivores so no bread, digestive biscuits, Xmas cake. Chocolate is a definite no no and is dangerous for dogs. I also do not give porc or lamb which are too fatty.
Yesterday we had chicken for dinner so today’s treats were in the special gold medal box. Tonight we are eating monkfish so tomorrow I shall use a left over portion for our boot camp exercises.
