10 Reasons Your Dog Deserves a Minties Treat

Let’s be real, our pups rule the roost.  They may not be very sly like the felines of the house, but boy are they charming and loveable! Dogs make our world go round, and it is easy to see why they deserve gifts and treats every now and then.  Just look at them!

In case you needed a little more convincing, we found a pup that speaks our language to give you some reasons why our furry friends think they deserve a healthy dog treat.

Here are the top 10 reasons we deserve a treat—straight from the dog’s mouth.

We Deserve a Treat Because…

We are the Life of the Party

We definitely aren’t party poopers. Every party has one, but we will leave that job up to a pet more fit for the job…if you catch my drift. Our sheer presence lights up the room like a Christmas tree—and who doesn’t love Christmas!

We are Always Excited to See You!

Honestly, half our lives are spent staring out the window, waiting for our owners to come home. We are excellent at giving a warm welcome after a long day!

We are a Triple Threat

We have starred in countless movies, been featured in millions of YouTube videos showing off our dance moves, and did I mention we can hold a high note like nobody’s business. All that hard work deserves a treat or two…or five.

We Didn’t Get the Name, “Man’s Best Friend” For Nothing

Living up to this name is easy, because we know the true meaning of friendship.  We will always be there to pick you up when you fall, and love making you laugh!

We Reduce Stress and Improve Your Quality of Life

It’s true! We have the ability to help you relax, ease your blood pressure, improve your relationships, and even your nutrition. Interacting with your dog reduces stress by significantly lowering cortisol levels and improving your immune system’s functions.

Our Bag of Tricks is Endless

They say you can’t teach and old dog new tricks, but we like to think otherwise.  Have you ever seen a cat, bird, or bunny sit or stay on command? That makes two of us. Dogs are pretty much four legged ninjas with fur.

We May Hate Dressing Up…

But we sure look good doing it. Putting on a sweater or hat is second nature to us. It might be itchy and hot, but we are good sports about it – at least most of the time. Now, if that doesn’t deserve a treat, I don’t know what does.

We Have Larger Than Life Personalities

From sweet to sassy—it is easy to fall in love with our personalities. It’s hard to deny that hanging out with us makes everything a little brighter!

We May Not Be Perfect, But We Are Never Boring

Yes, we know we can be a lot to handle at times—digging into the trash, eating the remote, and chewing on furniture can sure be a handful. But it makes life more fun, right? Let’s face it, without us life would be one big snooze fest.

We Got Your Back

We are your very own personal security system. Our bark might be bigger than our bite, but we like to act tough and show people who’s the boss, even if that means barking from a distance.

Did I Mention We’re Cute?

This may not involve any skill, but we can’t help it that it just comes so naturally to us. How can you say no to our big puppy dog eyes?

The list could go on and on, but we would be here all day. So dear pet parents, listen to your dog and make it a habit to shower us with gifts and presents every day. Ok, maybe not every day. But some healthy treats here and there can be good for our health, and that is a gift that will keep on giving.
