Hi,

Carrots should not be a problem, but just think, if dogs live in the wild, would they look for carrots to eat? Do hope Joesmith read your thread as he is more knowledgeable on this subject. As for milk, my personal experience is that it gives my dogs the run, so I give them goats milk or fresh yoghurt a tablespoon full a day.

Do hope the subject on milk help.

All the best.

YES, carrots are good for dogs, as all veggies are good. We could feed twice a week just veggies alone and it would be perfectly fine and healthy. However, there is a little trick to it. Dogs can’t break down the cellulose (they don’t have the enzyme required to do); hence, we have to do that for them; just puree the veggies and you have the perfect veggie meal.

On the other hand, to give a whole carrot instead of a recreational bone would provide some chewing pleasure for the dog, if you don’t mind the mess.Milk powder is not a good thing to offer, try to feed chicken wings or necks and your puppy will have a healthy shiny coat. Fur shedding should be seasonal only, so monitor the puppy to determine if it is seasonal or health related.

It is not the sausage alone, which might be salty. You have to consider the quantity too. I do use sausages during training as a treat and honestly, I do not really bother about the nutritional value. In relation to his daily food intake, the few sausages do not have any adverse affect on his health.

ya...its very effective for training purposes....my dog just loves it than any other treats....

but currently i'm just using during outdoor training......merely to get her full attention....

a question here...,

if i were to use the sausage for daily training at home, will my dog get bored of it and would lose her interest during the outdoor training session??

coz she might think she could have the opportunity to eat it at home too...

I never thought of that. My dog loves sausages and I could give that every day, every hour and I doubt that it would be ever enough. Laugh However, I try to minimize the bribery with sausages, because I noticed that when I use them to often then my dog starts sniffing first before doing the command. It looks like: “Mmhhmm can get sausage smell, so OK will do it”.

Wink depends on what you call sweet. You could try to use the common fur coat supplement to make the fur shines better instead. Sugar and anything else with it would make the teeth bad only with no effect on the coat.
