    Why Sprats are a Super Food & you should add them to your dog’s treat pouch

    Sprats are 100% whole dried oily fish that offer numerous nutritional benefits.

    Suitable for puppies over 14 weeks old

     

    Why feed these to your dog?

    We all want to raise healthy and happy canine companions.

    Feeding 1 or more oily fish a day, two or three times a week can unlock incredible health benefits for your dog1

    ✔️ Natural source of Omega 3 fatty acids These essential fatty acids also play a big role in promoting healthy skin

    ✔️Oily fish contains CoQ10. This is a powerful molecule with antioxidant properties, protecting cells and potentially extending both health span and lifespan.

    ✔️ Supply minerals, including selenium. Selenium is vital for thyroid health, and helpful in neutralizing free radicals and protecting the organs from damage.

    ✔️Rich source of vitamins, such as vitamin B-12 which supports healthy methylation, nerve function and detoxification PLUS vitamin D, which is vital for our dogs’ overall health and must be consumed in the diet, as dogs can’t make vitamin D from sunlight.

     

    Appeal to your dogs’ natural instincts 

    If your dog is anything like mine, I am not sure that some food rewards even touch the sides on their way down sometimes! This is not ideal when I am trying to make a positive impression in training! These small fish are my current favourite because at around 8cm long I can use a whole fish as a jackpot and they take a bit of crunching to last more than a moment!

    There are lots of different ways to deliver food rewards that appeal to the dogs’ natural instincts: As a spaniel, my own dog was bred to use her nose, so the fishy smell is appealing. The small fish easily break into pieces so I mix it up and sometimes rather than giving her a whole fish I sprinkle bits onto the floor for her to sniff out and snuffle up which for her, adds to the reinforcement, but if your dog likes to chase, throwing the fish out for your dog to track could also add to their enjoyment.

     

    ✔️ Great for fussy eaters

    ✔️ Gentle on the stomach

    ✔️ Free from additives and preservatives

     

    75g Boxes

    This quantity lasts me a couple of weeks, and when I run out, I switch it up for something new such as pate so the jackpot I reward my dog with is always exciting and novel. Imagine those elastic recalls with a dog bounding back to find out what today’s surprise will be!

    Great training and reward treat

    I use these for scent work with our 8 month old Retriever - he absolutely loves sniffing them out! I also cut them up and use as rewards and lures when training and to fill kongs and enrichment toys.

    Highly recommended to all

    My dog absolutely loves these. Mostly use them as meal topper, but also work great as high value rewards.
