May is National Walking month and we all know the benefits of walking, for both us and our dogs. We always recommend taking some treats with you when you head out on a walk. Firstly, we’re a big fan of training on the go (check out our recent blog on this), secondly, our low-calorie Caboodle treats are a great way to keep your dog full of energy for their walk without overfeeding them.
