Natural Dog Chews

Expand your healthy dog treat offerings by including natural dog chews in your product line. The best choices contain a single all natural ingredient.

These natural dog treats are becoming a popular choice among savvy pet parents looking for healthy dog treats made in the USA that do not contain ingredients they can’t even pronounce!  

Natural chews are easy to make.

A quick and easy way to make chews if you do not have a dehydrator is to put strips of the food product into the oven on a very low temperature (200 degrees F or lower). 

Let it bake until the strips are dried out. It could take from three to four hours or even longer in a regular oven.

Examples of popular commercial chew ingredients:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Pork
  • Lamb
  • Salmon skin (shown at the top of the post)
  • Exotic ingredients like rabbit, kangaroo, ostrich and crocodile will make up the natural chews you will soon see from some of the large dog chew manufacturers.

With news of recalls of pet treats especially from certain countries like China, dog lovers are becoming more interested in making their own homemade dog treats. However, it can be a lot of work, so think about offering natural chews to satisfy your customers’ desire for healthy dog treats.

Take this test. Do your pet treats stand up to the following descriptions?

  • Natural
  • Free range or grass-fed
  • No preservatives, additives or fillers
  • No hormones
  • No antibiotics

These are the trending descriptions. Not all customers will be concerned. If you have a particular clientele, it will be important that if you have to say no to any of these parameters, some of your customers may be saying no as well.
