Most Labrador retrievers will love dog treats I’m sure! Now, I dont know about everyone else but when I hand out treats I want them to be nice but also healthy.
I think it is important to keep in mind that table scraps belong in the garbage, not in your dog’s food bowl. Many people think that giving your Lab that nice chunk of fat from their sirloin will add a nice sheen to his coat. While that might be nice it is definitely not a healthy option for your lab.
An occasional bone, can give your lab a good tooth cleaning and some jaw exercise, but please keep in mind that most bones are constipating as well as dangerous if a bone splinter becomes lodged in your labs throat.
Nylon or rawhide “bones” are safest. They are available in most pet stores, groceries, supermarkets, and online.

If you want to give your dog more than his everyday food (even though dogs generally do not get bored with their meals, unlike humans), try small amounts of fruits, cereal, and vegetables. They do not upset the intestinal tract by their oiliness or indigestibility, and actually promote effective digestion.
However, in my opinion what can be better than home-cooked treats? Like this you will know exactly what goes into the treats and you can make sure that nothing will affect your Labrador retriever unhealthily.
I would like to remind everyone to take a quick look at the dangerous foods for dogs page so that you make sure not to use anything that can harm your dog when making homemade treats.
