FREEZE-DRYING — THE GOLD STANDARD OF FOOD PRESERVATION
ORIJEN Free-Run Duck treats are gently freeze-dried, retaining all of the natural goodness of our authentic ingredients without the addition of synthetic preservatives. Our freeze-dry kitchen is equipped with nitrogen tunnels which flash-freeze ingredients at an extremely low temperature (-60°F), locking in their vitalizing nutrients.
An 18-hour freeze-drying process gently converts the water frozen in the ingredients into ice vapor, without creating any liquid. This means only water is removed from our ingredients, leaving behind all of their goodness in a concentrated form, creating a nourishing taste experience your dog will love.

HOW MANY TREATS SHOULD YOU FEED
A common problem today is pets being overweight, and overfeeding is a major contributor to that. This means that you do need to be mindful about how much you are feeding your dog, and you should keep in mind how many calories they’re receiving from treats. Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s daily food intake.
An easy way to figure out how much 10% of your pet’s daily food intake is, is to look at the calorie content in your pet’s food. For example, if you are feeding a 10-kg [22-lb] dog one cup of ORIJEN Original per day, that would be equal to 470 kcal per day. Our ORIJEN and ACANA dog treats range from three to six calories per treat. In this situation, you shouldn’t feed more than about eight treats per day.
TRAINING WITH TREATS
Treats are commonly used when training to help teach pets new tricks or encourage a desired behavior. Studies show that over 75% of dog owners use rewards, such as treats, when training their dogs. It has also been found that dogs who were trained using only reward-based methods seemed to exhibit less anxiety and, overall, be more obedient.
When using treats for training you want to choose a treat that can easily be broken into small pieces, or is already small. This helps to reduce the number of calories that your dog is receiving from treats in one training session. Our ORIJEN freeze-dried cat treats are a great option for dog training, due to their smaller size.
Treats for training also need a taste that pets really enjoy. This will help to encourage them to display the behavior that you are looking for. It is also a great idea to use a few different treat flavors to help keep your pet interested and engaged in their training session.
