Did you know that treats should only make up 5-10% of your dog’s diet? While there are lots of treats that dogs love, feeding them too many can make weight management an issue. Getting healthier, more natural treats can help you continue to offer treats without adding on the pounds. If you’re looking for organic snacks to reward your dog and your conscience, you’ve come to the right place. Here are 6 of the best organic treats to feed your pup:
Castor & Pollux Organix
Known for their organic dog cookies, Organix treats come in cute, circular shapes to appease both you and your dog. They have chicken, cheddar cheese, and peanut butter recipes meaning you’ll find your dog begging for more. They also only use free-range chicken and their treats contain no artificial preservatives, added growth hormones or antibiotics. Be aware that these treats only come in one size, so if you have a bigger dog, they might not be for you.
Small bones, large bones, jibbs, and rolls, Riley’s Organic dog treats have it all. They come in brightly colored resealable bags, making it easy to store them way up high and out of paw’s reach. Their peanut butter & molasses bones are a fan-favorite, but you can also get their jerky jibbs when you need small, bite-sized pieces for training. These treats are delicious but also very healthy containing no preservatives, sugar, salt, or artificial colors and flavors.
Full Moon has all the meat-flavored dog treats your pup could dream of. Chicken fillet? Check. Chicken jerky? Yup. Chicken strips? You got it. They even have chicken nuggets—and this is just the chicken section of their repertoire. If your dog salivates at the mere mention of steak, Full Moon’s endless selection of meat-flavored dog treats is a good place to start. Full Moon prides themselves on using no preservatives, artificial flavors, or food colorings. They’re also grain-free which can be helpful if your dog has allergies (wheat is one of the top 5 targets for allergies in dogs).
If your dog comes running at the smell of peanut butter, maybe it’s time to indulge them. Wet Noses has tons of peanut butter treats mixed with a choice of banana, quinoa, or pumpkin. These treats come in a massive five-pound box, so you should be good to go for quite a while. They are also great sources of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. And of course, they are all-natural with no additives or preservatives.
These fruit and vegetable-flavored oven-baked dog treats are certified vegetarian and certified kosher. They come in the cutest bear shapes, so they are equally delicious and fun to look at. They are also quite affordable, making them a great choice when on a budget. The delicious apple scent of these treats makes them irresistible to your dog! They are also made with the highest quality ingredients and contain no GMO’s, preservatives, or artificial sweeteners to keep your pup nice and healthy.
Old Mother Hubbard treats come in a variety of flavors and sizes, which means these treats are good for training and provide a great deal of variety. They are good for dogs who like to take their time with their treats, as they aren’t particularly smelly but they provide a decent crunch. My own dog loves both the P-Nuttier and Bac’N’Cheez flavors!
