When it comes to selecting the perfect treats for puppies it's essential to prioritize quality, nutrition, and specific needs. We have popped together a helpful guide to help you choose the ideal Laila and Me treats for your Australian puppy:
Puppy-Specific Formulas: Look for treats specifically formulated for puppies. Our treats often contain the appropriate balance of nutrients needed for their growth and development. Puppies have different dietary requirements than adult dogs, and specialized treats cater to those needs.

High-Quality Protein: Opt for treats with high-quality protein sources, such as chicken, beef, or lamb. Protein is crucial for muscle development and overall growth in puppies.
Natural Ingredients: Choose treats made from natural ingredients, free from artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Puppies benefit from wholesome, nutritious treats that support their overall health.
Australian Ingredients: Prioritize treats made with locally sourced Australian ingredients. Not only does this support local businesses, but it also ensures the freshness and quality of the ingredients.
Appropriate Size and Texture: Pick treats that are appropriately sized for your puppy's breed and age. Consider the texture as well – some puppies prefer softer treats, while others enjoy the crunch. Ensure that the treats are easy for your puppy to chew and digest.
Training Treats: If you're using treats for training purposes, opt for small, low-calorie treats. These are ideal for rewarding good behavior without overloading your puppy with excess calories.
Teething Treats: For puppies going through the teething phase, consider treats designed to soothe their gums. Look for softer textures or treats that can be frozen to provide relief.
Puppy Treat Variety Packs: To add excitement to treat time, consider purchasing variety packs that offer different flavors and textures. This allows you to discover what your puppy enjoys the most.
Avoid Harmful Ingredients: Stay away from treats that contain ingredients harmful to dogs, such as onions, garlic, or excessive amounts of salt. Always read the ingredient list carefully. Take our 'No More Rawhide Pledge here'.
