The consensus, however, is to play it safe and start with a very low dosage (3mg or lower). Stick with this regimen for a week or longer to see if you notice a difference in your dog. If he’s not showing improvements, then you can up the dosage — as long as your vet gives it a nod. Keep in mind that your dog’s weight is a major factor in how much of any supplement you should give.

The point of homemade dog treats is to stay away from preservatives, chemicals, dyes and all the other nonsense. Be smart. Do extensive research on the ingredients you wish to use and the alternative to each of them. Even if you think your dog has a ‘tolerance’ for milk, you should use it regardless unless you 100% know of any additives. In that case I just take milk right out of the equation. Theres no need for it anyway.
CBD for pets is a topic that is being discussed more and more every day. Iâ€™ve done my fair share of research and came across a company called InTuneCBD. I think itâ€™s important to understand and know the ingredients that are in these CBD treats and InTune offers just that! I ordered a free sample through their site and gave it to my furbaby Oliver who has severe separation anxiety and itâ€™s worked wonders for him!
Per the treat bag, King Kanine says that one cookie is equivalent to 3 ml of 150mg CBD oil. So, according to its dosage chart, King Kanine recommends a 75 lb dog be given 1 a treat per day for health and immunity support as well as for mild anxiety, nausea or vomiting and pain from injury, surgery, hip dysplasia, etc. The same weight dog can have up to 2 treats per day for severe pain, cancers and epilepsy. The dosage for your dog will depend on its size and the severity of the condition being treated or managed (dosage info is included on the back of the treat bag and it is per day).
I love this list! First time making dog treats, didn’t have all the ingredients for one recipe so I used this as inspiration. I used peanut butter, eggs, flour, honey, and vegetable broth to make soft, chewy dog biscuits and used a heart cookie cutter. My pugs & chihuahua, and my boyfriend’s goldens loved em! Even tried one myself heheh – turned out like lightly sweetened peanut butter cookies.
The idea of using treats to train is often equated with bribery. Truthfully, dogs do what works. If using treats gets them to do what you want, then why not? You can also use the world around you as a reinforcement. Every interaction you have with your dog is a learning opportunity, so when you think about it, you probably don’t use food very often except during active training sessions. So why does your dog continue to hang out? Because you reinforce him with praise, touch, games and walks. Just remember, the behavior should produce the treat; the treat should not produce the behavior.
