How do I keep my treats fresh?

Yellow Paw treats are made with fresh, natural ingredients.  These ingredients do not include any preservatives, additives, dyes, or byproducts to ensure the safety and health of your dog.  Like the food you eat, you must keep these treats refrigerated or frozen to ensure freshness.  Frozen treats will last as long as your frozen foods because all of the ingredients are intended for human consumption.

Is it good to use treats while training a dog?

The answer to this question is ultimately left up to the dog owner.  However, we encourage dog owners and trainers to reward good behavior, whether it be verbal praise or a yummy snack.  Our treats serve as excellent training treats because they are natural, healthy, and without manufactured fillers.  We recommend using the Liver Bits as an extremely effective training tool.  A dog does not need to receive an entire treat every time he performs your desired behavior.  A good tip:  break treats into smaller pieces.

How many Yellow Paw treats can I give my dog?

Like all food products that enter your dog's body, treats are fine within reason.  We recommended a maximum treat feeding of 10-15 treats per day (depending on the treat).  Anything over this amount would be bordering a spoiled dog not to mention an increase in your dog's weight.  If you would like to feed your dog more Yellow Paw treats, consider cutting back on their normal portions of your regular food to compensate for the amount of food your dog has consumed.  Yellow Paw treats are a perfectly healthy meal substitute on an occasional basis.

Can I feed Yellow Paw treats as a meal?

Yellow Paw treats can be fed as a meal substitute.  In fact, it is healthy to change up your dog's eating habits as long as you continue to feed properly and assure your dog is getting appropriate nutrition.  The natural history of your dog is similar to the wolf.  As predators, canines naturally go through lean and fat times which gives the digestive tract an opportunity to rest and put aside regular duties and do some cleansing.  In fact, many dog nutrition specialists will recommend doing a "bone fast" once every few months.  It is recommended that Yellow Paw treats be fed as a meal replacement on an occasional basis.

Will my dog like all of your treats?

Yellow Paw Cafe cannot guarantee your dog will absolutely love all of our treats.  Dogs, like humans, have taste buds and favor certain flavors over others.  Our treats cover a wide array of textures, flavors, and smells to tempt even the pickiest of eaters.  Chances are, your dog will find one or all of our treats delicious.

I have a finicky dog, what if she doesn't like the food?

There are a lot of dogs that are finicky eaters.  Of course, there are many reasons why some dogs will only eat certain foods.  Many experts believe this behavior comes from owners feeding human food/ special food when dog food is rejected.  The dog learns he doesn't have to eat his food if he does not want to. To break this problem, feed your dog 2-3 times per day in small amounts.  If he does not eat his portion, remove it and do not offer it again until his next scheduled feeding.   If he's hungry, he will eat.  Also, dogs may act as though they do not want to eat if they are getting attention.  Try feeding your dog in a different room and don't watch.  Again, if he's hungry, he will eat.  If you dog loses weight, gets sick, or does not eat for extended periods of time, consult your veterinarian.  Other potential causes of this problem could be an allergy.  If your dog eats certain foods and does not feel well afterwards, he may avoid his food entirely.  Try switching food or feeding a raw diet.

Why aren't Yellow Paw Cafe treats perfectly shaped?

Yellow Paw treats are not mass produced by machines.  All Yellow Paw treats are made by our chefs daily.  Each treat is made personally for your dog so you can expect a flaw or two.  You can tell each treat is made individually by the subtle differences in shape and size.  This is our way of guaranteeing you and your dog are getting the personal attention you deserve.
