Hello Everyone,

I am Tiffany and I am here (on this forum ) with my sweetheart Abby.

Abby is our 1 year old Rottie, New Finland mix.

Just curious what kind of "specialty treats" people are using with their dogs?

A friend of mine suggested that by putting raw eggs on top of my Abbygirl's food it would keep her coat shiny and make the food taste better for her.

Thanks for any and all feedback!

Tiff and Abby

Welcome Tiffany and Abby :) Abby is a Rottie/ Newfoundland? She must be adorable. I hope you will post some pictures. My dogs are Rotties too and they have a friend named "Buddy" that is a Newfoundland. I use Natures Balance roll cut into small pieces for training. I also give a tsp. of wheat germ oil on their food and a few Tbsp of plain, low-fat yogurt. IT helps with gas and general digestion. Feed your dog a good quality food and brush their coat on occasion and you should have a very nice shiny coat.



This goes for Rottweiler mixes too. :d ;)

My dogs like the Innova treats, the Ole Mother Hubbard treats and the Wellness well bites. They like others too but I watch which ones I feed them now days>Nothing from China if I can help it. David

I add olive oil to their evening feed. I also add add shredded carrots, and organic plain non-fat yogurt(not all at the same time:p) Eggs are an occasional treat(we're lucky enough to get free farm-fresh eggs from my aunt:D)

My dogs get variety...the spice of life. They get avoderm bisciuts (good for skin and coat) fish jerky (also, skin and coat), different types of rawhide (for their teeth and for fun...and while rawhide is not for everydog, my dog loves it and only chews it whenever I am here oddly enough).

They also get raw treats. On grocery days, I buy sale meaty bones like pork ribs and game hens, etc.

Funny this came up, yesterday I hung out outside with my dogs and they were actually hot. It was a nice day finally. They got frozen fish fillets. They were raw. Crunchy and cold, it was a nice treat.

I made homemade chicken jerky after reading a thread on this site. They didnt look as nice as the ones in the store but the dogs loved them.

My dogs are spoiled. I brought home a box of Nutro's large breed adult biscuits and both dogs spit them out. After a day with no treats, they started eating them. I guess they realized this was it.

Working in a pet store, having a great love of my dogs, and having no will power, I bring something home 70% of the time so the dogs are always looking for a bag in my hands and what goodies are in it. I think the parrot is starting to catch on too because she gets goodies too.

So to sum it up, you name it, the dogs get it. I do usually try to stay away from "junk" treats though :)
