As a positive dog trainer, I’m always recommending that my dog-training students use high-value and motivating dog treats during training. Dog training takes a lot of time, patience, and repetition, which can lead to a lot of dog-training treats. However, this does not mean that those dog training treats can’t be healthy, and even included in the dog’s daily calorie intake! As a matter of fact, I’m an advocate for using a dog’s daily food or food calories as their dog-training rewards. Here’s the rundown.

By now, you probably already know I’m a firm believer in a species-appropriate diet, which means a home-cooked or raw diet for dogs. In this diet, a dog receives a lot of real meat. After all, dogs are carnivores; you just need to take a peek at those razor-sharp teeth to realize they were made to eat meat.

When a dog is learning new behaviors or unlearning behaviors, it’s important to reward that dog often in order to make the new behavior a habit. Meat is an excellent motivator and healthy dog-training treat. And the best part is if you are incorporating meat without any other ingredients such as flour, sugars, grains, etc., you can count that meat as part of his daily food portion. Voilà, no extra calories for dog training and no fat dogs for positive-reinforcement training! Just happy, well-fed, and well-trained dogs.

When I’m looking for the best dog-training treats, I look for natural dog treats that are ideally just meat. I was beyond thrilled when I found The Healthy Companion Company and their line of wholesome meat treats. The Healthy Companion Company not only manufactures their treats in the US, but they also source all of their ingredients from local US farmers. The best part is that their meat treats are made without chemicals, preservatives, additives, and the meats are antibiotic and hormone free!

Blend of Turkey-Beef Heart-Chicken Bites Ingredients: 1/3 turkey with bone, 1/3 beef heart, and 1/3 chicken with bone.

Rabbit Formula Ingredients: Whole ground rabbit

I’m obviously over the moon with the quality of The Healthy Companion Company’s treats, and both Dexter and Nutter were going crazy when I opened the shipping box. Dexter was extremely eager to dive in, but he waited patiently as I took the photos for our natural dog treat review.

Not yet! 🙂

When Dexter finally had his first bite of the all-natural rabbit dog-treat formula, his eyes bulged out, and he looked at me for more. I obliged and gave him a few more rabbit treats. Then, we moved on to the Blend of Turkey-Beef Heart-Chicken Bites. Dexter was just as impressed and happy. I couldn’t leave Nutter The Cat out. He also gobbled them up.

Natural dog treats

These all-natural dog treats are a great size, light, and easily break apart for the perfect bite for a dog training treat. I love the fact they are thin and don’t take up much room in a pocket, which is especially important when training a dog on the go.

Perfect treats for dog training

These natural meat dog treats are dehydrated, which means they retain most of their nutrients, making these treats very nutritional. The Healthy Companion Company does not use any form of preservative, so it’s best to store the treats in the refrigerator to ensure freshness.

Because The Healthy Companion Company uses bone and organ in their antibiotic-and-hormone-free dog treats, I can easily recommend that these treats are used in replacement of a portion of a dog’s daily calories for training.

If you are looking for natural, healthy dog treats, especially for dog-training treats, I highly recommend checking out The Healthy Companion Company’s line of meat treats. They also provide all-natural dehydrated duck and chicken feet if you are looking for a healthy dog chew! Don’t forget to tell them that Dexter the Dog sent you.

A big shout out to my friends at Sojos! They have been sending me some great, healthy dog food and dog treats to sample and review. Feel free to read my Sojos Turkey Dog Food review. Today it is going to be about Sojos Simply Lamb Dog Treats. Treats, my favorite! My Mom is the best when I get to try healthy dog foods and dog treats. I could, of course, do without the dog grooming reviews!

Healthy Dog Treat Reviews
100% Meat

Mom had to do her normal photo shoot of the treats before I could actually taste them. I watched her patiently from the dining room. I sure wish she didn’t take so long setting up those dog treat photos. Ok, finally Mom came back and asked if I was ready to try my Sojos Simply Lamb Dog Treats. Why, that’s a silly question. When have I ever said no to food? I happily followed her as she opened my package of healthy dog treats.

Oh, heaven. As I bit down on my lamb dog treat, my eyes widened with delight. These mouth-watering morsels are just divine. We dogs love meat. And that’s just what we get with Sojos Simply Meat Treats. It’s the real, raw meat we crave. These treats were really tasty! The Sojos lamb treat had a great texture and nice snap as I crunched it. I wanted more and thankfully, Mom gave me a few more to eat.

Sojos Simply Lamb Dog Treats are packed with great flavor and truly have the “drool factor” Mom talks about in dog training. Mom says that if someone wants to use these treats for dog training, the treats can be easily broken into small bites and placed into a baggie during a training lesson. However, because these are raw treats, people need to wash their hands after handling them. That means these treats are best used for training specific behaviors inside the home and not out and about. Leftover treats can be kept in the resealable bag.

Natural Dog Treats and Reviews
No Fillers, All Meat

Not only do these treats taste great, but they are also healthy. A single-sourced ingredient made with USDA freeze-dried raw lamb. The freeze-drying process is slow and low so that all natural enzymes are carefully protected. No GMOs, fillers, preservatives or artificial colors or flavors. No ingredients from China, and made in their own factory in the USA.

Sojos Simply Lamb Dog Treats Ingredients: 100% freeze-dried lamb
Pros: 100% USDA lamb, healthy treat, very enjoyable, lamb raised in the US and manufactured in the US
Cons: You have to be comfortable with raw

Sojos Simply Lamb Dog Treats are a BIG WIN in my book! Thank you Sojos for the great, healthy dog treats.

K-9 Kraving Cookies-Duck Treat Review

Love me some duck!

I’m loving all the edible dog reviews Mom has been letting me do lately. They sure do beat the dog grooming reviews! Today I’m going to talk about K-9 Kraving Dog Cookies-Duck. K-9 Kraving was very generous and donated some K-9 Kraving Dog Cookies and bully sticks for me to review. But onto the duck treats.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “the dog’s nose knows.” Well, that is certainly true when the delivery man brings a package full of dog treats, dog food or dog chews. Once again, I was all over this box when Mom brought it into the house. There is just no getting by me when there is food involved. So just what exactly was I going to get to taste today? Mom pulled out a pretty big bag of something that smelled delicious. I could read that the bag had K-9 Cookies-Duck. What? You don’t believe me? Yes, I can read; it’s one of my many talents. Now back to my review. Mom let me sniff the bag while she took some photos. Finally, she unsealed the bag of K-9 Kraving Dog Cookies-Duck treats and pulled out one pretty big dog treat!

When she did, my eyes got really big. Was Mom going to let me eat the whole thing? She let me smell the treat first before telling me I could eat it. Oh, and it smelled very good.

Anytime Mom!

 

YUM!
Once I tasted the K-9 Kraving Dog Cookies-Duck I was in heaven. The rich flavor of duck always delights my taste buds. Once again Mom chose a “cooling meat,” since it is summer here. They were crunchy, but easily chewed and devoured. Mom broke one of the treats into 10 smaller treats. I hate it when she does this! I want the entire treat, not “training treats.” They do have quite a good aroma and pack a lot of flavor into each cookie. I bet a lot of dogs could use this treat as a high-value treat for dog training.

So now let’s take a look at the ingredients and good stuff about K-9 Kraving Dog Cookies-Duck treats. K-9 Kraving is USDA inspected, manufactured at their own plant in Maryland, on-site packaging, industrial refrigeration, freezing and dry storage space. They import federally regulated Elk (farm raised) from Canada, as well as whole fresh Mackerel; all other proteins, vegetables and supplement mix, are born, bred and raised/manufactured in the USA. K-9 Cookies come in a variety of flavors and are nutritionally enhanced with modest portions of essential vitamins, minerals and trace minerals. K-9 Kraving Cookies dog treats are free of preservatives, dyes, added sugars, cereal grains, glutens, nitrates, chemicals, and soluble carbohydrates.

K-9 Kraving Dog Cookies-Duck Treat Ingredients: duck, egg powder, psyllium seed husks, linseed meal, sunflower meal, tomato pomace, kelp and vitamins and trace minerals. That’s some good stuff!

Pros: USA and Canadian only meats, made in the USA at their own plant, high-value reward for dog training, did not crumble in pocket, healthy treat, very enjoyable

Cons: For a dog treat I could have done without the minerals.

I give K-9 Kraving Dog Cookies-Duck treats a big paws up. Thank you again, K-9 Kraving, for your samples for my review. Yummo~
