The Skinny On Minis

Pet Botanics Mini Training Rewards are an ideal solution to the problem of dogs gaining weight from consuming too many treats during training. Each of these delicious morsels contains only 1.5 calories (1.6 calories for the Grain-Free version), so they can be given repetitively to reinforce behavior -- with no worries that Fido will get flabby. And, because they’re made with real meat as their #1 ingredient, they’re irresistible to dogs, making them a great training motivator that has been recommended by professional trainers nationwide.

Small Treats = Big Rewards

Canine nutritionists recommend that dogs get no more than 10% of their daily caloric intake from treats – and that includes treats administered during training. Trainers and pet parents can have a hard time staying within the 10% limit when they’re trying to teach a pup a behavior cue, since this typically requires repetitive rewarding. (See article “Keep Dogs From Putting On Pounds During Training.”) But because Pet Botanics Mini Training Rewards are so low in calories – just 1.5 calories (1.6 calories for the Grain-Free version) – they can be given in greater quantities than high-fat rewards like cheese or even standard dog treats, without exceeding the 10% daily caloric limit.

Not only will Pet Botanics Mini Training Rewards help prevent weight gain, but because of their small size, handlers won’t have to worry about the dog getting full and losing interest in the lesson. Pet Botanics Minis are also ideal for challenging training situations that may require a few “extra” rewards.

Huge On Flavor
