Well I've been wondering how many treats your cavs get on a daily basis..
Ours get about 2 a day (weekdays) and 1 a day during the weekend cause they get a treat when we leave for work and at bed time.. At bed time they get a "dentastick" a treat to clean their teeth..
Qwick is quite big but he's tall as well and he might be a bit too big but not extreme and since he already lost weight I just try to keep him as he is now (about 11kg).. Qwebble is a lot thinner but then again she's only 1,5 year...
Cleo gets small treats for whatever behaviour we're trying to encourage. Right now if she doesn't bark us awake at the crack of dawn, she gets a treat when we get up! Her treat is usually a few bits of kibble, deducted from her usual daily allowance.
Occasionally she gets one when she goes outside to do her business - just to remind her we think that is a good thing and should be encourgaed!
The new Super Stars made by Fish4Dogs are good, though no price has been announced, yet. They are very popular with my lot but very tiny (about as large as your little finger nail). They are made of fish, potato, salmon oilbeet, yeast, vitamins and minerals, only.
Good fun poll, but I would have rated it by weight of treats rather than number of treats :p
You see, my boys get lots of treats during the day, because they are in obedience training. Each treat would be half the size of my little fingernail. So though I would vote 5 - 10 treats per day. That might only be a daily total weight of 5 grams.
However, if I gave them one of Sam's biscuits, that would weight 32 grams.
By the gods I can be a stick in the mud at times :winkct:
Having said that, I will go & vote, so look out for my 5 - 10 treats.
Oakley has his Gold Cood citizen test in 5 weeks so he gets plenty of treats at the mo. He has the Barker and Barker Little liver treats which they can actually have up to 170 a day :)
Have you tried your Super Stars, yet ? Monty finds them diffficult because they are rather small for him and can fall out of his mouth.
Yes - the boys like them - I mix them in with the little liver treats so they get a surprise out of the treat bag :)
Ours get treats for obeying as well and they are very small but since that's not everyday.. they are calculated in the total :)
Perhaps I need to make a poll on what your cav weighs ;)
Monty would get the record, unless someone has a really fat dog.
