  • My cats get them when I'm leaving the house and when putting them (me) to bed.

    We give our dog a treat at bed and we use them to teach her tricks.

  • yes but only to reinforce any desired behaviors or to mitigate any stressful experiences, such as after giving them a bath, so that they associate good rewards with some events

  • my cat doesn't really like treats but because the cat from across the street comes over he's been getting little pieces of tuna for a couple days

  • Yes, but since we have guinea pigs the treats are generally pretty healthy- they get veggies and fruit daily as treats, and one of our pigs has trained my son to run to the fridge for carrots every time she wheeks at him- she's a clever pig to train a child so thoroughly! LOL!

  • I don't buy store-bought treats too often, but when I do I make sure they are all-natural, contain NO corn/wheat/soy in any form, and that they are not irradiated. I sometimes give them bits of meat (chicken/ground beef, raw or cooked)...they've also had carrots, potatoes, beans, canteloupe, and watermelon.

  • My cats only get treats on very rare occasions except for popcorn, they love popcorn and I give them each three pieces in their bowl every time I make it.

  • The parrot gets Honey seed sticks and the dog gets little milk bones when she goes potty outside.

  • I give my dog a treat as a reward often.
    And a "Greenie" every Sunday...LOL. She knows when I say "Oh Abby,its Sunday" and she gets all happy and sits like a good girl,waiting for it.
