4 under-$10 dog treats greyhounds will love

Whether or not your dog is food motivated, finding the perfect treat may be essential to her training regimen or even her day-to-day life. Especially for more athletic dogs, treats for greyhounds need to be more than just delicious — they need to be satisfying, too. But just remember to store dog food correctly to make it last the longest it can.

The best dog treats have whole, real foods as their first ingredients — meats, produce, and whole grains (unless you opt for a grain-free food for your pup). Treats are a great way to get extra protein into your dog’s diet without adding to their meals. Plus, they’re a fantastic motivator. What are you waiting for?

When you have a little furry friend by your side, it's only natural to want to share just about everything with them. Even when it's a simple gesture like letting them on your bed for a nap or sharing a bite of a snack, bonding over these little things can be some of the best moments you'll ever share together. But when it comes to dog-friendly snacks; what exactly can you share?
Many fresh fruits and veggies are great to share with your dog, but can dogs eat oranges? This acidic fruit might be a great morning pick-me-up, but it's great to double-check before handing a slice to your lip-licking furry friend. Here's what to know about dogs and oranges.

Can dogs eat strawberries? Everything you need to know
Yes, you can feed strawberries to Fido. Here's how

Sharing food with our dogs is one of the most fun parts of pet ownership. But animals can't always eat the same stuff as humans (and we certainly don't want to chew on their chow, either). It's important to keep a restriction list in mind when you go to get your buddy a snack from the kitchen. Pups shouldn't eat everything in our pantry, but can dogs eat strawberries? The answer is: Yes, they can and will enjoy them. We'll walk you through how to feed strawberries to dogs and what other fruits they can gnaw on.
Are strawberries toxic for dogs?
No, not at all, and in fact, many dogs love strawberries. Like so many other fruits, strawberries have a lot of nutrients and tons of water, making them a good and reasonably low-calorie snack. However, the drawback is that they're very sweet. That's probably half the reason that Fido likes them!

Because of their high sugar content, though, you should limit how many strawberries — or any berries — you give your pooch per day. The exact number you give depends on the size of your pup pup, with the littlest breeds only needing one per day. A large beastie can have as many as four, and you should scale up or down for all sizes in between.
How should I prepare strawberries for my dog?
Before passing this treat to your animal, make sure to remove the green bits, though a tiny bit of leftover leaf won't hurt. The biggest issue with this fruit is the size — strawberries are a choking hazard. If you have a little guy that takes big bites, you'll want to chop these up small first before doling them out. Lastly, remember that we're talking about fresh strawberries, not canned or jammed or anything like that.
What fruits are not good for dogs?
You should certainly make your buddy avoid all the fruits you don't eat either like red berries he might find growing in the wild. However, the biggest fruits your dog can never eat are grapes and raisins. Science hasn't quite figured out why, but these delectables don't do well for our hounds, and even just one grape can turn deadly. Lastly, stay away from the following just to be safe: green tomatoes, cherries, limes, lemons, and avocado (technically a fruit and bad for dogs in large quantities).
