We’ve reviewed tons of treats here on The Dog People, but based on purchase data and further screened for healthy ingredients and responsible sourcing (and no junk fillers), these are the ones that our readers like best. You’ll find freeze-dried crunchies, chewy jerkies, fruit bites, and more.
Keep in mind that treats should only make up about 10% of your dog’s diet, so if you’re in hardcore training mode, you’ll need to adjust the amount they get at mealtimes.
