Top 5 Dog Treats – 2017 edition

With so many options at the grocery store, petstore, and online, we had to do some digging to see which actual dog treats are both loved and enjoyed by dogs, but easy on the wallet for their owners.

We also spoke to two separate veterinarians here in the southern California area here in San Diego, to see what their take was as well.

In short, there are myriad choices.. Almost too many. So, we’ve broken it down further into categories that may be more suitable for your own needs.

Furthermore, you know your dog best, so you’re certain to find one or two new ones to try, as Cooper, our dog, LOVES trying new treats.

Without further ado, here are our top choices for 2017:

  1. Rocco & Roxie Gourmet Slow Smoked Healthy Dog Treats

  2. Full Moon All Natural Chicken Jerky Dog Treats

Conclusion on Dog Treats

It’s important to try new products and brands, not just the same ones over and over. Just like humans, dogs love food, and a variety of food. I have personally fed my dog each of these brands, and there are some he loves more than others. However, without trying them, you’ll never know what they enjoy most!
