Besides an “atta boy” and pat on the head from you, the next greatest reward your dog likes is a yummy treat. What’s more, giving your dog a treat makes you feel good, too. The very act of rewarding your best friend with his favorite treat not only reinforces training, but helps solidify the bond you share with your canine companion.

Fortunately, organic Christmas treats are a way you can spoil your dog without giving him an unhealthy snack. If you do not have access to a doggy bakery, you can find several healthy choices online, the healthiest being an organic or all natural treat.

For instance, Pampered Paw Gifts   offers dog lovers organic and all natural products like salt free Christmas doggy cakes made with a rice cake and yogurt frosting, decorated in holiday colors, and trimmed in doggy bones.

The Christmas doggy treats look like pastries that come from a high-end human bakery and are exquisitely decorated in holiday colors in various dog-themed shapes. They not only look good enough for a person to eat for a Christmas treat, but are made with the finest human-grade ingredients. So, if your dog is willing to share with you, there is no harm in taking a nibble.

Other delectable dog treats you can expect to find online are cookies, bon bonspaw printspaw cupsbonesreindeerpresentsmittenssanta pawssnowflakes, and wag sticks made from a peanut butter recipe and iced with yogurt. All items are free of byproducts, artificial color and flavors, and preservatives.
