    Teddy has become a more and more breed of pet owners. In the process of raising Teddy, many owners will feed some snacks to teddy. But when feeding Teddy snacks, many owners often make some mistakes.
    Mistake 1: it is more comprehensive to take snacks as staple food. The nutrition of normal staple food, but the main function of snacks is not to supplement nutrition for Teddy. If not paid attention, it is easy to cause Teddy’s unhealthy situation of partial eating, anorexia and obesity. Living with Teddy, I can’t help but want to give them some snacks. However, once the frequency of eating snacks increases, there is a risk of falling into “eating only snacks but not staple food”. “Isn’t it inhumane to look at such lovely eyes and look at you eagerly, and not give them food?” Such psychological guilt, as well as the psychological satisfaction of Teddy’s master, “it’s a good child to stay at home”, make people want to write delicious snacks for them. However, once the frequency of snacks increases, it will bring a series of troubles. In terms of weight conversion, a dog may be less than one tenth of our human weight, so giving Teddy a biscuit is equivalent to eating ten of your own. So, although it will make Teddy happy to give him snacks without restraint, the consequences of such behavior are beyond your imagination.
    Mistake 2: Snacks are not selected. Choose at will for example, some of Teddy’s smaller size or younger age is not suitable for eating larger or harder snacks; if it is mainly for dog training, it is better to take silk as the main food (more economical); if it is mainly for teeth grinding, it is better to take meat twining and glue biting or grain stick as the main snack.
    Mistake 3: the purpose of using snacks and staple food is confused the main purpose of snacks is to increase Teddy’s sense of happiness and make the owner enjoy happiness at the same time, while the staple food is mainly to ensure Teddy’s health. The main raw material of chewing gum is cortex, which is mainly used to resist biting. It’s better not to let it eat in the stomach, especially for small dogs. It’s not allowed to eat it, or it will be life-threatening.
    Mistake 5: Give Teddy snacks to eat snacks can be used for life training and basic training, when Teddy does the right prize. Don’t give Teddy a lot of snacks. It’s easy to spoil his appetite. Chewing gum, ice cream, cake, these desserts are better to touch less. On the one hand, they are easy to get cavities. On the one hand, it is easy to get fat. After eating too much sweetness, the biggest problem is that Teddy has no appetite for dinner. Chocolate is a common poison for dogs! Because chocolate is a poison to dogs. Chocolate is processed from the seeds of cacao tree. It contains a large amount of methylxanthine, a mixture of caffeine and theobromine. Even if the intake of methylxanthine is less, dogs will have vomiting and diarrhea. People will be excited and happy after eating chocolate. However, once dogs eat a lot of chocolate, they will have muscle tremor or even spasm, which will be fatal. Because chocolate can make the dog’s heart beat twice as fast as usual. But according to Tim, a veterinarian at Colorado State University in the United States, the risk of chocolate for dogs is determined by the amount of chocolate swallowed, and the risk of a large dog eating a small piece of chocolate poisoning is much lower than that of a small dog. The sugar free dark chocolate theobromine is five times higher than milk chocolate, so it’s also more dangerous for dogs. So try not to let your dog eat chocolate. In addition, grape is also a fatal fruit for Teddy. ASPCA Animal Prevention Center issued a notice to Teddy’s parents across the country, asking them to pay attention to the fact that dogs may be poisoned or die if they eat raisins or grapes.
    Mistake 6: Feed at will. Don’t give your teddy snacks at will, which will make your teddy beg for food and harass visitors, establish the rules that you don’t allow it to beg or steal food, and avoid many troubles. It is generally difficult to restrain family members to feed at will. Fat free leftovers can be placed in the dog’s bowl for the next meal. But snacks can be used to reward good behavior or to assist in training. Snacks with rewards are more effective than penalties. Snacks are also food, too much snacks will cause obesity, reward snacks should be symbolic, by the owner to the most appropriate.
