Gourmet dog treats should be yummy and nutritional, yet still be decorative and appealing to both you and your dog.
Maybe you don’t have time to make homemade dog treats for your dog—or you may not want to be bothered with making fancy dog treats that require extra time and effort.
There are literally, thousands of dog treats on the market. And some are good—but some are not. Deciding which ones to buy can be time consuming and frustrating.
So how do you go about picking the best treats for your dog?
Choosing the Best Gourmet Dog Treats
You can spend hours reading all the details about each gourmet dog cookie or biscuit. Or you can explore the gourmet dog treats below.
I’ve spent the time to review the gourmet dog treats, their ingredients and what people thought of them. And I’m passing my findings on to you…
Gourmet Dog Treats for Bichon Frises
Bichon Frises and other small dog breeds like gourmet dog treats—just like any other dog. But, there are some simple rules to follow when buying dog treats for Bichons.
Since Bichons don’t eat huge quantities of food, even a few treats can make a difference your dog’s diet.
Hypoallergenic dog treats
Many Bichons have food allergies, so it’s wise to look for dog treats that don’t contain ingredients that your dog is sensitive to…
Choosing different and interesting flavors will help keep your dog interested.
Your dog’s age
Puppies, adults and seniors each have different needs. There are dog treats that are designed to meet the needs of each age group. Look for a dog treat that works for your dog.
Cute dog cookies
There are so many cute or fun designs for gourmet dog cookies. Pick one that you (and your dog) will think is fun…
Healthy and Unique Ingredients
Sometimes you might have to sacrifice having the highest quality ingredients—for a special occasion treat. On the other hand, many gourmet dog treats have very healthy ingredients that are safe for your dog to eat.
Size of the Dog Treat
Some gourmet dog cookies are fairly large for small breed dogs. Mini dog treats or bit-sized dog treats work well with both Bichon Frise puppies and adults. If you have a little dog, consider breaking a large gourmet treat into smaller pieces.
Your Dog’s Favorite flavors
With gourmet dog cookies, you often have flavor choices that are not available in other dog treats and cookies. Which flavors does your dog like best? If your dog loves a certain ingredient or flavor, it’s worth searching for it.
And when you are choosing gourmet treats for your Bichon Frise dog, don’t forget to keep your dog’s special needs and medical conditions and her likes and dislikes in mind!
