How To Get Your Dog Interested In Treats and Chews

So you got your first Real Dog Box, but your dog doesn't like certain items? Oh no! Don't fret just yet. It is relatively normal for dogs to be suspicious of new treats and chews. This is especially true for dogs that don't get much nutritional diversity in their diets as it is! Getting dogs interested in our chews can be a challenge. Some dogs are finicky, some just don't know what to do with their chews. We have a few suggestions to help get your pup chewing away!

  1. Play fetch with the treats and chews in question. Many times, we can change a dogs' mind about their suspicious treats and chews by turning the items into a more desirable and higher value one. Play is a surefire way to get your dogs more intrigued with these strange new things. 

  2. Try rehydrating the treats and chews. You can change the consistency, texture, and smell of the treats and chews by rehydrating them in hot water for 20 minutes. 

  3. Offer it as the only chew of the day.  Sometimes if a pup gets a whiff of another chew they really like and know it's available, they'll hold out for that one. 

  4. Be persistent. Sometimes, you have to just keep trying. 

If that doesn't work, we do have a 100% satisfaction guarantee -- anything your pup doesn't like, we'll replace at no charge and add it to your Do Not Send List.
