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.

Thank you, Mom and Riley’s Organics for my next review. There is nothing wrong with taste-testing healthy dog treats, especially when they are organic! Riley’s Organics was kind enough to send me some Riley’s Organics-Sweet Potato Dog Treats to try out. I could smell the goodness straight from the bag of Riley’s Organics-Sweet Potato Dog Treats. Hmmm mmm mmm good. I think it was the organic cinnamon and organic peanut flour that was radiating from the bag. Any time now, Mom! I’d love to get a taste.

Organic Dog Treat Reviews

Mom finally unzipped the pouch, and more sweet smells filled the air. Ahh, the smell of organic dog treats. You gotta love that! These Riley’s Organics treats were shaped like small bones. Perfect size for a tasty delight for dog training. What? Mom, you really don’t have to break the small treat in half. There you have it. They also break easily into two small pieces.

Riley’s Organics-Sweet Potato Dog Treats were nice and crunchy. Even the 1/2 treats crunched up. I wanted to take my time and devour the flavor and not swallow it. They were mighty tasty! I still get excited when Mom pulls out the bag to give me another taste treat.

Time to take a peek at Riley’s Organics to check out the goodness and health factor. Riley’s Organics are sourced and produced in the U.S.A. Their factory is in Illinois. They produce in the heartland so they can source as many ingredients as possible from the farmers nearby to reduce their carbon footprint. 100% human grade ORGANIC ingredients that are USDA Certified. Riley’s Organics does NOT have wheat, corn, soy, pesticides, preservatives, added sugar, added salt, or animal by-products. Sounds great! No wonder they are so flavorful.

Healthy and Natural Dog Treats
Tasty Dog Treats

Riley’s Organics-Sweet Potato Dog Treats INGREDIENTS: Organic Sweet Potato, Organic Oat Flour, Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Peanut Flour, Organic Canola Oil, Organic Nonfat Milk, Organic Eggs, Organic Cinnamon

Pros: 100% organic ingredients, all sourced in the USA, small size and can also be broken in half, tasty, very enjoyable
Cons: Might not be enough of a motivator for dog training in distractions, would love to see a soft variety, more than one ingredient

Riley’s Organics-Sweet Potato Dog Treats are a sure win in my book!
Thank you, Riley’s Organics for providing me a sample to try and for a giveaway.

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

Bring on the snacks! Yup, I love the healthy dog treat reviews Mom has been having me do this week. There’s nothing wrong with eating some tasty food for my paycheck. Max & Ruffy’s was kind enough to send me some bags of their USDA Organic Dog Treats. You heard me right, ORGANIC DOG TREATS!

Organic Dog Treats Review
Max & Ruffy’s Organic Dog Treats

Mom always does her best to feed me organic home-cooked dog meals and organic dog treats whenever possible. Organic foods do not use harmful insecticides, fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, radiation, or other detrimental ingredients or practices. That said, you still need to be careful about labeling and read the ingredients carefully.

Max & Ruffy’s offers your companion a selection of uncompromised, eco-friendly dog treats using only the freshest 100% organic, non-genetically modified organisms (non-GMO), and human-grade ingredients. Max & Ruffy’s treats are made using 100% certified organic human-grade ingredients sourced from socially responsible companies. Their line of oven-baked organic dog treats includes both wheat-free dog treats and grain-free dog treats. Max & Ruffy’s does not use any animal ingredients in any of their products in order to supply the very best vegetarian dog treats and vegan dog treats on the market. That sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it?

Not only are these organic dog treats healthy, but they also are delicious! I’m not sure where to begin because Max & Ruffy’s sent me more than one flavor. They sent Banana & Coconut, Coconut, Molasses & Flax, Strawberry & Carob, Five Star Blueberry, and Quinoa & Pumpkin! My little taste buds went into overdrive, and I liked it.

Healthy Dog Treats
Organic Dog Treat Sizes

They also sent over their organic dog treats in two sizes: Original Bites and Mini Bites. I, of course, prefer the larger Original Bites, but I think Mom likes the smaller ones for smaller rewards. She even had the audacity to break one of the larger organic dog treats into four smaller pieces! She can be such a party pooper. Mom tried to figure out which flavor I liked best, but it’s really a bit of a draw. However, I do go for the Five Star Blueberry and Quinoa & Pumpkin first more often. But they all are tasty, and I would never snub any of the flavors. You can’t really go wrong with any of their options.

  • Banana & Coconut Ingredients: Organic Buckwheat Flour, Organic Banana, Organic Coconut, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Cinnamon
  • Coconut, Molasses & Flax Ingredients: Organic Buckwheat Flour, Organic Coconut, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Blackstrap Molasses, Organic Flax Seed powder
  • Strawberry & Carob Ingredients: Organic Brown Rice Flour, Organic Strawberry, Organic Carob Bean, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Maca
  • Quinoa & Pumpkin IngredientsOrganic Pumpkin, Organic Brown Rice Flour, Organic Quinoa Flour, Organic Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Nutmeg, Organic Cloves (all ingredients are certified organic)

Pros: 100% organic ingredients, cruelty-free vegan, no artificial coloring, flavor enhancers, additives or harmful preservatives, lots of flavors to choose from, 2 treat sizes available
Cons: Might not be enough of a motivator for dog training in distractions, would love to see a soft variety

Max & Ruffy’s Natural Organic Treats For Dogs is a total win in my book!
Thank you again, Max & Ruffy, for allowing me to sample and review your tasty snacks.

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~

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.

Wagatha’s Organic Dog Treats

I love my dog treats! Boy, do I love to eat dog treats and dog snacks. But Mom over there tries to make sure I only eat the healthiest and safest dog treats around. She, of course, makes me my own homemade dog treat recipes, which I think are the tops! The tops, I tell you. But sometimes she likes to have a stash of healthy dog treats that are always ready to go and put in her pocket.

So today, I’m going to talk to you about Wagatha’s Organic Dog Treats. Mom first purchased these organic dog treats for my girlfriend, Sabrina Furchild. Yes, that’s right, I have a girlfriend. Mom thought they looked healthy and tasty, and they had a variety of good flavors to choose from. I’m not sure what took her so long, but she finally bought me my own box of Wagatha’s Organic Dog Treats.

I can tell you I think these organic dog treats are the tops! Okay, maybe not as good as Mom’s home-cooked treats, but they are super tasty, and crunchy but not hard. I’ve been trying a variety of their flavors and so far I gobble each one up.

Some nice details about Wagatha’s Organic Dog Treats: All ingredients in their organic dog biscuits are sourced from organic growing areas within North America, with the exception of the extra virgin olive oil (Spain or Italy), and bananas (Central America). That’s right, NO CHINA! Yippee! The organic dog treats are made in small batches in a human grade bakery in Vermont.

Wagatha’s Super Berry Biscuits Ingredients: USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS: whole barley flour, cranberries, blueberries, applesauce, ground flax seed, canola oil, sunflower seeds, carrots, cinnamon, ginger.

Pros: Organic, not made in China, crunchy but not hard, tasty, affordable, lots of flavors
Cons: Might not be enough of a motivator for dog training in distractions, would love to see a soft variety

Wagatha’s Organic Dog Treats are a hit with me!

They are soft and easily fit inside a rubber dog toy such as Kong or Rita. Mom froze the batch and just takes 2 out at a time for me.
