Huskies' Favorite Dog Treats

October 22, 2021

What are the greatest Huskie dog treats?

It varies on the breed of Husky, what they're doing, and even the season.

Huskies have delicate stomachs and particular nutritional needs due to their ancestry as hardy snow dogs. They thrive on a high-quality diet that is rich in complete, unadulterated components. This is one of the reasons why pet parents of working Huskies like to feed their dogs nomadic foods like seasonal game and fish.

Did you know that working Siberian Huskies must cut their protein intake by about 20% throughout the summer? When the snow begins to fall, that figure rises to more than 30%. These nutritional changes ensure that your dog does not gain too much weight during periods of inactivity.

The same logic applies to treats. Treats should ideally account for no more than 10% of your dog's daily calorie allowance. Some of the most stringent Huskie pet parents only give goodies during training sessions.

We've compiled a list of the greatest dog treats for Huskies, both industrious sled dogs and sofa "pupatoes."

Look for the following ingredients:

Organic, locally sourced meat. Organic meats are minimally processed and free of all artificial substances that may be harmful to your dog's health. Locally sourced meat is also the freshest option while lowering your Husky's carbon footprint.

Humectants from nature. Have you ever wondered why dog treats last so long? Humectants, a type of chemical used to keep moisture in place, are the key. However, not all humectants are the same. Molasses and vegetable glycerin are more natural humectants than synthetic humectants.

Omega-3 fatty acids Omega-3 fatty acids aid the body in a variety of ways, in addition to keeping your Husky's coat healthy. Omega-3 fatty acids are a vital part of a nutritious diet since they promote cognitive growth and good eyesight, as well as regulate blood flow and prevent inflammation.

Avoiding Ingredients

Grain and wheat Treats containing wheat, corn, rice, and other grains that can upset your Husky's stomach should be avoided.

Calcium in plenty. Huskies are susceptible to zinc deficiency. Excess calcium complicates matters, so check the calcium content of the snacks before purchase.

Ingredients synthesized. Food colors, chemical preservatives such as sodium nitrate, and synthetic humectants such as propylene glycol should be avoided.

Turkey cookies make an excellent training treat. Most biscuits are bite-sized or easily broken into smaller pieces, making them an excellent choice for obedience training. Feel free to substitute venison or halibut in place of the turkey.

Bites of frozen watermelon

Fruitables Skinny Minis Grain Free Soft Dog Treats Watermelon Flavor (2 Pack) 5 oz Each
  • Amazing aroma and irresistible taste in each treat
  • Only 2 gluten-free calories each
  • Chewy treats in a size perfect for small dogs and training
  • Made in the USA
  • Resealable and recyclable pouch

When the temperature rises, nothing beats a watermelon "pupsicle" to keep your Husky cool. This delectable low-calorie treat is high in fiber, vitamin B6, and potassium. Before freezing, remove the seeds, and never allow your Husky nibble on the rind.

Finally, some final ideas on the best dog treats for Huskies.

Huskies are notoriously finicky eaters. If they don't like the texture or flavor of a treat, you can bet they'll snub it. Even one unpleasant experience with a particular meal can turn someone off for good.

Don't go overboard. Because treats are a pleasant motivator during training, it's best to give your dog a treat just when they've earned it. Giving them treats on a regular basis for no apparent purpose may confuse them. (Also, they should channel their inner alpha wolf.) The daily dental chew, which removes plaque and tartar from your dog's teeth, is an exception to this rule.

Leave out the table crumbs. It may appear to be a smart idea to reduce food waste by giving your Husky some leftovers. But remember how we mentioned that Huskies have delicate stomachs? The pancreas and digestive tract might be agitated by table food, resulting in weight gain.
