Natural Dog Treats
Natural treats are a delicious and healthy way to show your dog some love at snack time.
Natural treats are created with a minimal number of natural ingredients that can easily be recognized. They are free from artificial flavors or preservatives, aiding your dog's overall health and digestion.
Natural diets are becoming increasingly popular among dog owners and in turn there is now a huge variety of natural dog treats on the market to choose from.
Freeze Dried Dog Treats
Freeze drying dog treats involves exposing ingredients to low temperatures where, through the process of sublimation, all moisture is removed. This also preserves nutrients, making them very healthy dog treats.
Dogs love freeze dried treats for their chewy texture and maximum flavour. They make the perfect gift for that special dog in your life!
Many freeze dried dog treats are also suitable to feed your cat.
Air Dried Dog Treats
Air drying dog treats involves placing ingredients in a sterile environment where air is circulated to remove moisture. It does not involve heat so can take a long time for manufacturers to dry them out.

Also known as dental chews, dental treats are a smart way to keep your dog's teeth clean and healthy. Dental chews work by scraping plaque build up off your pet's teeth as they eat it.
Vets recommend you include dental treats as part of your dog's diet to promote dental health.
Australia Made Dog Treats

Buying Australian made treats means you can be assured that all food safety standards have been met with rigorous testing and regulation, giving you peace of mind.
Training your dog has never been easier with the help of training treats! Training treats are a fantastic way to quickly reward your dog when it behaves correctly and can help it learn commands faster.
Training treats typically come in small pieces and are easy chew. This is so you can quickly reward your pet then move on. You don't want your dog spending too long chewing one treat in the middle of a training session.
Liver treats are an excellent choice when it comes to providing your good girl or boy with a delicious snack. Every dog loves them! Not only do liver treats taste good but they are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals.
Just remember that these treats should be given in moderation due to their high fat content. If fed in excess, they can lead to diarrhea, pancreatitis and obesity.
Can I Give My Dog Treats Everyday?
Every dog deserves a special treat now and then! The question of whether you can give your dog treats everyday is met with a yes – but with some important considerations.
Some treats are healthier than others, and it's important to factor that in when feeding your dog those extra goodies. You should follow the recommended portion sizes for a given treat on its packaging, as overfeeding can lead to an unhappy and unhealthy dog. Moderation is key!
It is recommended that treats make up a maximum 10% of your dog's daily caloric intake.
If you are unsure about your dog's diet, make an appointment with your local vet for advice.
