I keep both my dogs lean. If they started getting a little heavy I would take treat calories into account.
Right now they are doing very well. This last two weeks have been very training intensive. Taught them both, 'are you shy' and 'take a bow'. It looks cool seeing a big tough GSD playing shy.

|Chip18||They are suppose to be "treats" not a meal if your worried about her intake your probably overdoing the "treats" I would think?|

I don't count it as part of next meal. Unless I see him gaining weight which in my pups case he's pretty lean.

I use these and fill it with raw ground meat and some supplements. It works great and your hands stay clean. Come home and put the rest in the fridge. I always have two ready.

I cut back on her meals because she put on 10lbs after we started working with a trainer (and started using a whole lot more training treats)
I wouldn't worry about it if the weight is healthy.

|mycobraracr||For me it depends on how drivey my dog is for the treats. I keep my dogs very lean so I usually don't have an issue with it. They can have their full meals plus treats.|

|wyoung2153||As of now I do not. But if mty dog had weight or major health issues I probably would.|

If the dog is young, looks good and doesn't have any digestion problems, I do not. I don't compensate, I just treat on top of normal meals.
If they are prone to upset tummies or are a little overweight/borderline, I compensate and don't feed as much in their meals.

Do you take training treats in to account when feeding?
I have been doing daily training with my 13 month old GSD. During our training sessions she eats quite a bit of dog treats. I try to buy high quality treats so I'm not worried about the treats themselves. Should I be lowering her food intake because of the treats she is eating? She doesn't seem overweight I just want to make sure I am doing it correctly.
