1. Stella & Chewy’s Wild Weenies Freeze-Dried Raw Treats will fulfill your dog’s natural craving for meat.
Promising review: “These were recommended by my holistic vet. Both my dog and cat absolutely love these and go crazy for them more than any other treats they’ve had. My dog will jump into the bathtub by himself to get a bath so he can have one of these treats – something that has always taken a lot of coaxing to get him in.” ーAwantura
2. Sojos 100% Raw Freeze-Dried Meat Treats are the perfect training treats, particularly if your dog is raw fed.
Promising review: “I have a 6 month old border collie who is beginning training for a variety of dog sports as well as general good puppy manners. These treats are the perfect size to reward without distracting, excellent alternative to bad for you biscuits, apparently taste great, and don’t crumble too bad in my pockets. They smell enough so she knows I have them even when she can’t see them, but not overpowering. Even my picky chihuahua loves them. Also excellent for use in treat dispensing toys when regular dry food isn’t motivating enough to work/play with it for.” ーMia Gulan
3. Chicken liver is great for dogs with allergies or those on limited ingredient diets, making Stewart Pro-Dog Treats one of the healthiest human-grade treats.
Promising review: “My dog LOVES these! We got the 21 oz beef liver tub. We bought the chicken liver in the past and my dog loves it just the same. The tub is huge, it is enough to last us probably over a year! The tub lid seals tightly to maintain the freshness. We have a small 16 lb cockapoo and she gets these maybe once a day/every other day. She looks forward to them and runs over at the very first sound of the treat cabinet door opening. They are great for training because they are very smelly, which might seem like a negative for us humans, but the smellier the treat, the more likely your fur baby will love it. I have attached a picture of her “saying please”, a trick she does to get the treat! Too much of anything is not good, so if you have small dogs I do recommend breaking the pieces into smaller pieces if you are using the treats for training purposes and are giving them multiple pieces a day. I have noticed that the chicken liver breaks off into little pieces more easily than the beef. I am also very pleased that this is pure 100% liver with no additives or preservatives. All in all a great product!” ーJLBeau
4. Your furry friend will love Raw Paws naturally delicious coconut and salmon treats for dogs, especially because they double as a healthy dog coat supplement.
Promising review: “My dog developed such bad skin allergies at ten years old. I have tried everything to help. He hasn’t been taking this Probiotics treat long, but I haven’t noticed it aggravating his condition at all. So far it looks like a great product – and the company is nice to check in to see how he’s doing 🙂” ーLori R
5. Sojos Good Dog Crunchy Natural Dog Treats are bite sized baked biscuits, perfectly made for training, rewarding or spoiling smaller breeds with tiny mouths.
Promising review: “I have two Shih Tzu puppies, one of which is EXTREMELY picky. The blueberry is my picky girls favorite cookies (the apple ones come in second)! These are the only ones she will consistently take no matter what. They are VERY small, but are a perfect size for both my small girls, and they love them. I also have an English bulldog and these are actually a good size for her as she doesn’t chew her cookies, so these eliminate the possibility of her choking. These cookies are a stock item in the cookie jar.” ーNickNick
