Safe & Non-Safe Foods

Informing yourself on what your dog can and can't eat will not only keep your dog healthy but will additionally assist in their training development! Your dog's state of health will determine its absorption of learning as its ability to concentrate and focus is impaired. When a dog feels under the weather, they will often revert to their fight or flight instincts which means that in high-pressure situations, such as training sessions, they can become agitated, defensive, rebellious, and ungovernable.
