If your dog is a training addict, chances are he is eating A LOT of homework. That means you want to make sure that you're selecting treats that your dog is going to enjoy. But there are other factors to take into consideration as well. Here are some treats that tick important boxes.
Best vegan treat:
Made from lima beans, coconut oil and brown rice, these completely organic crunchy bites will please anyone who tries to keep their dog's diet healthy, clean, and meat-free, if not also dairy-free.
Least greasy in your hand:
Lamb lung is our go-to treat at School For The Dogs. We love how easily it breaks up into tiny pieces, and how well it stores in a treat pouch. The best thing, however, is how it manages to stay dry -- and not get too stinky! -- when you're handling it.
Best single ingredient...
We love the simple treats that come out of the kitchen of our friends at Little L's. Their dehydrated meat treats contain only one thing each, which is perfect for dogs who are on limited diets.
Anything with kale must be healthy, no? If so, then South Fork's
Easiest to break up:
The perfect training treat should be both delicious and healthy, but it also needs to be easily broken up into very small pieces. This latter point is the big reason why we are fans of Cloud Star's Tricky Trainer line of treats. Each pencil-eraser sized piece can easily be split into at least four pieces; we like that they're also really soft, making it possible to divide them just with your thumbnail.
Best for tiny mouths:
Freeze-dried liver packed into a tiny bite! These minuscule treats are excellent for training, and go hand in hand with a limited ingredient diet.
