Serving & Feeding Guidelines

Delight Bites's™ belief is to provide healthy, all natural, single ingredient, tasteful treats that inevitably bond owner and pet. The most successful way to train your dog, is to gift treats. Good training equals good behavior through rewarding something your dog craves.

YOUR PETS SAFETY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US AND TOP OF MIND. PLEASE FOLLOW THESE HELPFUL SERVING AND FEEDING GUIDELINES FOR A DELIGHTED AND HEALTHY PET:

ALWAYS CUT TREATS INTO SMALL PIECES:

DO NOT GIVE A WHOLE JERKY STRIP TREAT TO YOUR PET. ALWAYS CUT WITH A KNIFE OR STURDY SCISSORS, OR BREAK UP THE TREAT INTO SMALLER SIZE PIECES. IF YOU ARE UNSURE THE APPROPRIATE SIZE TO FEED YOUR DOG, YOU SHOULD SEEK HELP FROM YOUR VET. WE ADVISE BREAKING THE JERKY STRIPS INTO DIME SIZE PIECES AS YOU FEED YOUR DOG.


ALWAYS SERVE WITH WATER:

JERKY TREATS ARE HARD, DEHYDRATED MEAT. TO AVOID ANY POTENTIAL CHOCKING HAZARDS, ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR DOG AS ACCESS TO WATER. THEY CAN DRINK FROM YOUR WATER BOTTLE, OR A LOCAL WATER BOWL NEAR BY. 


ALWAYS SEPARATE MULTIPLE DOGS:

 

MICROWAVE TO SOFTEN:

DOGS CAN GET REALLY EXCITED AND/OR REALLY TERRITORIAL WHEN IT COMES TO GIFTING THEM TREATS. SEPARATING YOUR DOG FROM OTHER PETS BEFORE GIVING THEM TREATS IS A BEST PRACTICE. BY DOING THIS, YOUR DOG IS LESS LIKELY TO SWALLOW THE TREATS WHOLE IN EFFORT TO PROTECT HIS OR HER FOOD FROM OTHER DOGS AND THEREFORE, LESS LIKELY TO CHOKE.


OWNERS OFTEN MICROWAVE THEIR DOGS FOOD TO SERVE SOFT AND WARM. WE HAVE FOUND CRUMBLING SOME DELIGHT BITES ON THE TOP OR MIXING INTO THEIR FOOD HELPS THEM EAT, ESPECIALLY IN CASES WHERE THE PET STRUGGLES WITH EATING ALL OF THEIR FOOD IN ONE SERVING.  TREATS MAY HARDEN OVER TIME. TO SOFTEN, YOU CAN MICROWAVE FOR 5 SECONDS FOR EASE OF SLICING OR CHEWING.


STORE TREATS IN SEALED PACKAGING:

DELIGHT BITES ARE HEAT SEALED FOR OPTIMUM FRESHNESS. ALWAYS REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING. FOR LONGER TERM PRESERVATION, YOU MAY STORE IN THE FREEZER. BE SURE TO REMOVE AIR FROM THE DELIGHT BITES BAG AND SEAL COMPLETELY AFTER EVERY FEEDING.

SAFETY RECAP:

FEED AS A TREAT- AS A REWARD OR TOPPING TO YOUR DOGS FOOD.

BREAK OR CUT TREATS INTO SMALLER PIECES.

MONITOR YOUR PET AROUND OTHER DOGS AND WHILE THEY ARE ALONE WHEN FEEDING THEM ANY TREAT TO HELP AVOID A HAZARD.

ALWAYS GIVE YOUR DOG PLENTY OF DRINKING WATER WHEN FEEDING TREATS.


DELIGHT BITES BRANDED PRODUCTS ARE INTENDED FOR USE OF FEEDING/REWARDING YOUR PET ONLY. AS WITH ANY EDIBLE PRODUCT, ALWAYS MONITOR YOUR PET WHEN CHEWING ON ANY TREAT TO AVOID CHOCKING HAZARDS, OR WORSE, A FATALITY.  IF YOU SUSPECT A PROBLEM, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR VETERINARY CLINIC TO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION.
