When To Give Treats to Your Dog
Knowing when to treat your dog helps you avoid overindulging him with these tasty morsels. Use treats for positive reinforcement when you’re training your new puppy or dog. Avoid treating a dog in an excited, elevated state, and instead wait until he’s calm and focused to offer the treat. Let him know you have it in your hand, but keep it some distance from his nose. If he jumps on you to go after it, turn away from him. Only after he has executed the command you’ve asked of him and then achieves a state of calm should you offer the treat.
Dog treats or biscuits are also helpful when it’s time for basic maintenance your pal may not especially enjoy—for example, having his nails trimmed or being bathed. Try luring him into the tub with a favorite treat, and if he knows one awaits him at the end of the bath, he may be a bit more willing to oblige.
But while treats can be powerful motivators for gaining compliance from your dog in many situations, avoid treating him immediately following a meal—he may feel full and thus show less motivation.

What dog treats should I stay away from?
Stay away from high-calorie processed treats with fillers, dyes, corn, sugar, wheat, or soy. If the treat is an unnatural color, that’s a good indicator you should not give it to your dog. Avoid rawhide treats and opt for natural horn and antler chews instead.
