Dog owners are more likely to give rewards to their pets for performing a task they’re trying to teach. This is probably because it’s easier to train dogs to perform tricks or obey commands while cats show little interest in these activities, even when presented with a treat as a motivator.
Cat people tend to give treats to show love, or to provide their cats with entertainment. This is particularly true for owners of indoor cats. To compensate for the lack of environmental stimulation that indoor cats might miss, owners can give a treat, especially if it’s inside a food puzzle or toy, to temporarily engage and entertain their indoor cat.
Both cat owners and dog owners are likely to give treats designed specifically to improve a pet’s oral health. For cats, FELINE GREENIES® Dental Treats are designed to clean teeth by fighting plaque and tartar buildup. Plus, they are 100% nutritionally complete and balanced for adult cats.
