It's hard to resist giving your Shih Tzu a treat every time you look into those adorable, pleading eyes but treats should be doled out sparingly — no more than two a day. Shih Tzus can become overweight easily because of their small size. Look for healthy dog treats like these found right in your own fridge:

  • One or two blueberries

  • Very small broccoli florets (about an inch long)

  • One baby carrot

  • Tiny bits of cooked chicken, turkey, or fish

  • Small pieces of strawberry

  • Small chunks of hardboiled egg white

  • Tiny pieces of raw apple

  • Spoonful of nonfat plain yogurt

  • Spoonful of lowfat cottage cheese

  • A couple of Cheerios
