Training with Biltong from Puppy to Pooch Pensioner.
One of the questions we get asked most often is – “Can my dog eat this?”
For so many reasons this is a great question. Not only does it say we chat to responsible dog owners, namely you, but after asking if their dog is fine with beef, in short our answer is yes!
Any pioneering product is always a cause for conversation, The more the word biltong creeps into the dog treat vocabulary, the more people want to know about it!
Lets start at the very beginning!
Yes, the earliest you can introduce your dog to a high value treat for training the better.
Trainers use a variety of treat options within an incentive treat training lesson. Teaching your pet to distinguish between the ordinary and the jackpot, is arguably a trainers top tip for top training. The answer is in the reward, and giving the ultimate reward inspires focus and understanding in any training situation. Making your dog work for their reward, means they get to understand when they’ve achieved their goal.
There’s no better time to start on our training treat range than as soon as your puppy is ready to rock their training classes, approximately 4 months onwards.
The three options in the collection, lend themselves naturally to each training task.
The bite sized Training Treats, are the simplest instant reward as they can be hidden in your hand before rewarding, and easily handled.
The Super Sticks , with their versatility , are a more visible training and an ideal boredom busting tool. They can be cut to a mix of sizes for a variety of uses. Stuffing a treat toy with any of our treats keeps your dogs interest undeniably focused. Enjoy the reaction as the aroma bounces off any highly sensitive nose. Seeing a stick hiding inside the toy, imagine the enjoyment on trying to work out how to get the stick out. This is a tasty little puzzle for dogs of all intelligence levels!!
Then we come to the Biltong Sausage. It’s the minced biltong option that we liken to to a raw burger rather than a steak. In saying this, you can take it that this is the most premium of burgers with nothing but 100% pure silverside.
It’s often a misconception that a sausage product will be filled with odds and ends. When it comes to our sausage , each hand crafted minced morsal has also been infused, just like our biltong slices. This makes our minced meat option not only a softer, crumblier texture, but with an intensity of flavour bursting with herbiness in every tiny taste.
The sausage lends itself to giving safely to those dogs who may have a more sensitive dental requirement, and as your pooch approaches their advanced years, well, they just want to take life with a little less jaw action!
So a treat range for all ages and stages, with a variety of options that will keep your dog training, learning and earning their reward!
