Best Freeze Dried Dog Treats

There is a short list of attributes that we look for in a treat: It should be mostly or all-meat (that’s the definition of high-value, in the opinion of most dogs); it should be dehydrated or freeze-dried (to make it convenient and not greasy in a pocket); it should be small (so we can feed a lot of them without filling up or boring the dog). That’s it!

We’ve never had a dog turn down these training treats.

Bravo!, maker of top-quality frozen raw diets, recently introduced a line of freeze-dried meat treats that meet all of our selection criteria. They come in four varieties: all-beef “hot dogs,” turkey, buffalo, and “Trail Mix,” which contains those three plus tiny cubes of freeze-dried cheese. We like the latter best, because the variety seems to hold our dogs’ attention longer. Bravo! uses only domestic sources of responsibly raised meats. We purchased from a local pet supply store; retailers are listed on Bravo’s website. Bravo! treats are also sold by online retailers such as cleanrun.com.

Bravo! Trail Mix – 4 oz. $10

I think the price is prohibitive. I want nutricious treats for my dog but I don't think it necessary to spend that much to reward her.

$10 for 4 ounces is so incredibly expensive. I think it is a disservice to promote such high priced food.

People, get a Nesco dehydrator for $60 and a cookbook.
