Hot Cheetos

Discussion in 'Health & Nutritional Care' started by charlesthefirst, Feb 11, 2020.

  1. Hi everyone,
    I know that letting a dog eat a whole family sized bag of hot cheetos is probably a bad idea, but what about giving him a couple or handful of them? Surely that doesn't hurt, right? Anyone else occasionally let their dogs enjoy cheetos as a treat or snack? I have a friend who was trying to train her dog (a mutt) to sit and she kept using hot cheeto puffs to train her.

    I never gave my dog cheetos. I don't consider that a "high value" treat to use for training. For snacking, I gave carrots, celery, apple. For training, I would recommend you make some grilled chicken or grilled turkey breast, cut it up in small pieces and use that for training purposes.

    No nutritional value to them. Regular cheetos would be a bad treat to be giving. Hot Cheetos is just asking for an upset stomach, possible vomiting and diarrhea. Them ain't good for you yourself to be eating, they are way worse for your dog to be eating.

    I'm strict with my dogs diets though. They don't really get snacks unless it's a soft boiled egg or a hard bone. It's hard to maintain a specific weight if the dog is snacking all the time.

    LOL, I'll use a Cheeto here and there, when I don't have hot dogs. Never a handful, though, lol
