Why Make Your Dog’s Treats?

Pet treat recalls. Avoiding preservatives such as Ethoxyquin, BHA, and BHT. Avoiding sugar, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, and maltodextrose. Bonding. Knowing what exactly is in your dog’s treat and where each ingredient was sourced. Cost effectiveness. Customization. These are just a few of the reasons deciding to make your dog’s treats is beneficial to you and your dog. The bottom line is that by making your dog’s treats, you have the power to ensure only the finest ingredients and the best handling practices are used. Not only that, but it also feels so good to take the time out of your busy day and do something extra special for your dog. After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Today, I will share a healthy dog treat recipe from my dog treat cookbook, Dexter’s Delights. But first, let’s talk about the flour used in this recipe.  I intentionally stay away from wheat products, including wheat flour. Coconut Flour: Coconut is a fruit powerhouse. Coconut can combat yeast, inflammation, and skin infections, and it even helps with digestion. It is high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats.

The carrot has a variety of health benefits for both us and our pets. I'm going to guess that you are visualizing the bright orange carrot, but the carrot also can be yellow, red, purple or white. The orange carrots are high in beta-carotene, which is amazing for eyesight. Carrots are also a great source of potassium, fiber, and antioxidants. Research is also showing that carrots are beneficial in treating inflammation and cancer! Now that's something to chew on.

Who doesn’t like pies? OK, to be honest, I’m personally more of a cake person. A rich, dark, gooey chocolate cake with caramel or raspberries would fit the bill. But, today is National Pie Day. I thought it would be a good day to share this Pomegranate and Butternut Squash Pie recipe from my book Dexter’s Delights: Fun and Healthy Treats for Dogs.

How do you really know what is a healthy dog or cat treat?

Do you know how to spot healthy dog treats? Are you sure all natural dog treats are healthy? Here are my top tips and 10 items to avoid. #raisingyourpetsnaturally
My top 10 ingredients that should NOT be in dog treats.

You may have found our website by searching for “healthy dog treats.” But what does that phrase even mean? This article can also relate to healthy cat treats. I’m sure a lot of people have a lot of strong opinions on the subject of healthy dog treats. So, I will just give you my thoughts and what I consider when feeding Dexter The Dog his dog treats. I won’t review any particular dog treats on this page, but you can visit our dog treat reviews, dog chew bone reviews, dog food, and dog mix reviews here and even how to stuff a hollow dog chew.

Shopping for Healthy Dog Treats

The very first thing I do when choosing a healthy dog treat for Dexter is look at the ingredients. Yes, the actual ingredient list, not just the photos on the front of the package, which can actually be very deceiving. Even the “flavor” can be deceiving. You might be surprised to learn that sometimes when a dog treat says “chicken flavor” they truly mean chicken flavor, and not any real chicken! So that leads to my first No ingredient.

My top 10 ingredients that should NOT be in dog treats:

    1. Flavors of any kind, natural or artificial: No artificial or natural “flavors” of any kind. If it says “flavor” in the ingredient list, back on the shelf it goes. It’s not real food, guys. And if it’s not a real food ingredient, it has no place in my dog’s treat, or dog food.
    2. Added salt, regular or sea salt: Nope, no reason to add salt to my dog’s treat. Every living creature needs sodium in its diet, but too much can cause problems such as seizures, diarrhea, and extra water intake. A lot of foods have naturally-occurring sodium, so you do not need extra salt added to treats.
    3. Sugar of any kind, including high corn fructose corn syrup or cane sugar: I shouldn’t need to tell you this. If we add sugar or high fructose corn syrup, we are truly just adding empty calories. Not only are these ingredients bad for our dog’s health, but they will also hop them up, and they can become hyperactive.
    4. Sorbitol: A sugar commonly found in berries, but prepared synthetically.
    5. By-products or digest: Ewww! I want to make sure my dog receives healthy food, not what is left on the floor of some meat manufacturing plant. Or carcasses from veterinary practices! Scary, isn’t it? Again, I want to know what is in that bag of treats.
    6. Coloring, artificial or natural: Why? Why would a pet treat manufacturer put dye or coloring in my dog’s treat? To please the consumer’s eyes, of course. Especially when we are talking about artificial food coloring. Artificial anything is a chemical process and has a long list of possible side effects. And don’t be fooled by “natural food coloring.” Natural can be made by things like bugs and rocks!
    7. Animal fat or anything “animal”or “meat”: What kind of animal or meat? Again, what the heck is in there, anyway? When I read it, I should have a very clear picture of what it is.
    8. Chemical Preservatives: Chemical preservatives of any kind should be avoided. Healthy does not equate to chemicals. No BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene), BHA (Butylated Hydroxyanisole), Ethoxyquin, TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone), Propyl Gallate, Propylene glycol, Sodium Nitrite. BHA, BHT, and Ethoxyquin are banned in human foods.
    9. Corn, wheat, or soy: A lot of our dog friends are allergic or have a low tolerance to these ingredients. According to PetCareRX, that excessive soy may contain estrogen that might provide some estrogen-like activity in your dog and contribute to slightly lower thyroid hormone levels.
    10. Glycerin, vegetable glycerin, or glycerol: Glycerin or glycerol can actually be produced as a by-product of diesel fuel! It will be unlikely you will know the difference from reading the ingredient list (although vegetable glycerin is plant-based, not from fuel). This is an ingredient in dog treats that helps make a treat soft and sweet. It is not uncommon for dogs to get a big case of diarrhea from eating treats with this product. Dexter is one of them.

Natural dog treat reviews

So what does that leave us? Well, a lot of things really. When Dexter gets something to eat, whether it’s his dog food or dog treats, I want it to be real food. Things that I can find in real life, not something that is synthetically made, or a by-product of something else. I personally prefer ingredients that are organic or wild-caught in countries or bodies of water that are known to be clean and environmentally friendly. Not China, of course. So that leads to sourcing of the ingredients. Read the article on Organic Dog Food to understand a bit more about organic and labeling.

After I look at the ingredient list of Dexter’s potential healthy dog treats, the next thing I want to know is where the INGREDIENTS were sourced. “Made in the USA” only means that the treat was put together in the United States, not that the ingredients came from the US. Sometimes you have to do a little digging to find this out. Most dog treat manufacturers that use only ingredients from the US or another safe country (there are other countries with better food regulations than the US) will proudly state that either on the bag or on their website. If not, some digging and contacting may be in order.

Once all this checks out, the next thing I have to decide is what is the purpose of the new healthy dog treat. Meaning, if I’m going to do a lot of dog training using the treat, I want it to be pretty much a single source food item (100% cod, beef, etc.). This allows a few things to occur. One, the treat will likely have a high value and keep Dexter’s attention on me around various distractions. Two, there won’t be “extra stuff” in the treat, so I can actually count the treat (remember, it’s real meat) as part of his daily calories.

 

k9kraving2

If on the other hand, I’m just going to have these healthy treats in our treat cupboard for random snacks, I do not mind if the treat has other ingredients besides meat, as long as they don’t need to keep a high value and they are not getting dished out like I do when I’m training a new behavior. Even though these treats are “healthy,” I still consider them like candy bars. A little goes a long way.

So there you have it. This is my starting point when determining if a dog treat is truly healthy for Dexter. Here you can find a partial list of some of my favorite, healthy dog treats. I do buy healthy and organic dog treats for Dexter, but I also make homemade dog treats too! You can download a free dog cake recipe here to give it a whirl. I hope you enjoyed this post, and thank you for taking your dog’s health seriously.


Ok, time to check out those pet treats. Go find your pet’s treats and flip over the bag and read the ingredient panel. What’s inside? Wholesome ingredients, I hope. Did your treats make the cut?

Sojos Simply Meat Treat Review

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored review. However, I will always offer my readers an unbiased and honest account of my experiences. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

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.

Le Dogue Bites-Fish Treat Review

High quality dog treats
Dr. Harvey’s Treats

 

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored review. However, I will always offer my readers an unbiased and honest account of my experiences. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

Now this is a dog product review I can get used to. Dr. Harvey’s was kind enough to send me some great, healthy dog treats, dog food, and dog grooming products to review. Ok, I’d rather do the edible items, and not have a bath…but I’ll forgive them for that. Today I’m going to tell you about Dr. Harvey’s Le Dogue Bites Freeze Dried Single Ingredient Treats for Dogs, Fish

 

As soon as our box from Dr. Harvey arrived, I was all over it. I couldn’t get Mom to open the package fast enough. Even though I was spinning and running around the kitchen, she just wasn’t getting the message. Finally, she opened the box that was filled with dog treats, dog food, dog shampoo, and some other doggie goodies.

Mom then picked a package and started looking at it. My sniffer was in overdrive, and I really wanted to see…..okay, taste, what she had. She bent down and let me sniff the bag of Dr. Harvey’s Le Dogue Bites Freeze Dried Single Ingredient Treats for Dogs, Fish. Oh, yeah, that’s the ticket! Then I tasted the fish treat. Oh, it was cod. I love cod.

Natural dog treat reviews
Perfect for dog training treats.

The Le Dogue Bites are perfect bite-sized dog training treats. They are freeze-dried to hold in all the goodness and flavor. Mom is always talking about how a treat has to have “value” when dog training, and these sure did. No fillers to distort the flavor.

Mom said she can even break the treat up into 3 more pieces to use for dog training. Wait. What? Why would you want to do that, Mom?  She also had them in her pocket for the day, and they did not crumble and turn to powder like some other freeze dried dog training treats she tried.

Some good stats on Dr. Harvey’s Freeze-Dried Cod Treats: Single Ingredient (just cod), human grade, no chemicals, preservatives, dyes, coloring agents, made in the USA. That’s some good stuff!

Dr. Harvey’s Le Dogue Bites Freeze Dried Single Ingredient Treats for Dogs, Fish Ingredients: Freeze-dried cod

Pros: 100% cod and nothing else, made in the USA, high-value reward for dog training, did not crumble in pocket, healthy treat, very enjoyable
Cons: None that we could think of.

I give Dr. Harvey’s Freeze-Dried Cod Treats a big paws up.

K-9 Kraving Cookies-Duck Treat Review

Love me some duck!

 

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored review. However, I will always offer my readers an unbiased and honest account of my experiences. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

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~

Newman’s Own Organics Premium Dog Treats-Turkey & Sweet Potato

Newman’s Own Organics

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored review. However, I will always offer my readers an unbiased and honest account of my experiences. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

Now I’m really glad Mom has been letting me review dog treats, dog chews, and even dog food! This is something I can really enjoy and get into. Newman’s Own Organics was kind enough to send me some tasty samples to try out and to use as giveaways! Today I’m going to talk about Newman’s Own Organics Premium Dog Treats-Turkey & Sweet Potato. Have you ever noticed how your dog can smell food and snacks a million miles away? Ok, maybe not a million, but when that package arrives with food goodies, I’m all over it! This was the case with my package from Newman’s Own Organics. I knew something good and delightful was inside, the question always is how long do I have to wait before Mom says it’s ok to give it a try?

This weekend was the time! She finally opened the box from Newman’s Own Organics and the aroma of tasty food and snacks filled the room. Maybe Mom or the other humans couldn’t smell the goodies, but I sure could. Mom chose Newman’s Own Organics Premium Dog Treats-Turkey & Sweet Potato for me to try. Mom loves for me to eat “cooling foods” during the summer months. Turkey is a cooling meat, so she thought that would be a good choice.While posing for this review, Mom dropped one of the turkey & sweet potato dog treats and before she could get out “leave it,” I struck like a cobra! Chomp, chomp, chomp….. oh, and it was mighty tasty! These crunchy treats tasted great! So back to the posing so I could earn some more rewards.

The Newman’s Own Organics Premium Dog Treats-Turkey & Sweet Potato were easily broken into bite-sized treats. We had the medium size, and it even has a perforation down the middle for easy breaking. Mom also broke them one more time so I got 4 pieces out of one treat. I still do not agree with Mom that I’m only allowed little treats at a time. I would prefer to stick my head into the treat bag and chow away. But then I wouldn’t have my rock-hard abs, and my girlfriend Sabrina Furchild might not like me anymore.

Now let’s look at Newman’s Own Organics Premium Dog Treats-Turkey & Sweet Potato to find the quality ingredients. A professionally blended recipe of organic grains, turkey, fruits, and vegetables. No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives; no wheat or corn. 70% organic ingredients, made in Canada using ingredients sourced in North America without any imported from China.

INGREDIENTS: Organic Barley Flour, Organic Ground Turkey, Cane Molasses, Organic Sweet Potatoes, Organic Carrots, Organic Apples, Chicken Fat (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols and Lecithin), Rolled Oats, Rosemary Extract.

Pros: 70% organic ingredients, no ingredients sourced from China, made in Canada, easily broken for smaller treats, tasty, very enjoyable

Cons: Might not be enough of a motivator for dog training in distractions

Newman’s Own Organics Premium Dog Treats-Turkey & Sweet Potato are a tasty dog treat for sure! Thank you again for providing me with a sample to try.

All you need to do is clean the fruit and veggies, place in a blender and blend away! Then Mom filled my Rita Dog Toy with the organic smoothie mixture, placed the toy in a small glass to hold it upright and froze it.

With the extra smoothie, she filled ice cube trays and froze those, too. Once frozen, she popped the cubes out and placed in a glass container for the future. She can then thaw 2 cubes and refill the Rita Dog Toy and freeze again. Voila! A healthy frozen dog treat to replace the not-so-healthy ice cream.
