Our seven year old Wendy (she's the lovely lady in the blog header) is having some skin issues. Her diet is the same as the other dogs so the vet thinks it has to do with an allergy. We've decided to omit wheat first to try to isolate the problem so the first thing to go is the traditional dog cookie.
Labrador Retrievers will work for food - big time! Our pups get treats liberally for doing the things we ask them to do throughout the day and during training.
The pups like veggies, especially carrots so we are giving these in place of the dog treats we had been giving them.
It was very interesting that all of the pups are just as happy to get a small piece of carrot as they were to get the traditional cookies. Hmmm. I should have started this sooner!
