Making Treat Time Special with Bully Sticks Central

While we're all about that homemade goodness, there are times when life gets in the way. And for those days, Bully Sticks Central has been my go-to. Their natural treats are the perfect companion to my homemade ones, especially when considering my pup's overall diet and feeding times.

I've found that giving a Bully Stick treat about 30 minutes before my dog's mealtime can be a great way to keep him occupied, especially when I'm busy in the kitchen. It's like a little appetizer for him!

When Should You Feed Your Dog?

The age-old question: "What time should I feed my dog?" Well, it varies based on your dog's age, activity level, and dietary needs. However, here's a basic guideline:

  • Puppies: 3-4 times a day.
  • Adult dogs: Twice a day.
  • Senior dogs: Once to twice a day.

Remember, the key is consistency. And incorporating treats, whether homemade or from Bully Sticks Central, should align with their feeding schedule to ensure they're not overeating.

Final Bark

Remember, whether it's a homemade treat or a natural chew from Bully Sticks Central, it's all about balance.
