"1. In this experiment I will be testing to see what my dog's preferred dog treat is. I will do this by selecting different dog treats and making the selection random each trial by changing the order of them. 2. The reason I'm interested in this experiment is because I love my dog and she is probably my best friend in the whole world and I want to find a treat that she likes and that's beneficial for her health.3. The results for this experiment showed that after finding the percent of my 20 trials, the Nudges Duck Jerky Cuts was picked 65% of the time, the Blue Buffalo bones with beef was picked 20% of the time, and the Milo’s Kitchen chicken meatballs was picked 15% of the time. This information indicates that the “Nudges Duck Jerky Cuts” was chosen by my dog the most times making it the best treat for my dog. 4. I think this experiment will help others by showing dog owners/lovers the best treat for their canine friend that is good for their taste buds and their health. "
