#2 – SPIKE Treats

Brand new from Petcurean, these treats aren’t on the market yet, but they will be by October 2015. One of their flavors is catfish, not something seen in many dog treats but great for those dogs with protein sensitives/allergies. The jerky treats are gluten and grain-free and contain other superfoods such as chia, pomegranate (another unusual ingredient!) and kale.

#4 – Coq Au Vin

Le Petit Treats are a cute, fun treat with amazingly good ingredients! Their Coq Au Vin recipe includes beets (which give the cookie a cute pink appearance!). Beets are full of antioxidants and vitamins. My dogs have tasted these cookies and loved them!

#6 – Beer Biscuits

These treats from Portland Pet Food are made with spent grain – a byproduct of the beer brewing process. During brewing, the sugars are extracted from the grain and then it’s typically thrown away. However, the grain is still safe and completely consumable so this company decided to turn it into a dog treat! These treats have limited ingredients and they make a flavor with no animal protein. They are sourced locally and made in Portland, Oregon.

#7 – Meaty Bites Wild Brushtail

These treats by Addiction are made in New Zealand from New Zealand Brushtail. What’s a brushtail? (don’t be embarrassed – we had to look it up too). It’s a type of a cat-sized marsupial (non-indigenous to N.Z.) that is part of the possum family.

#8 – Greek Yogurt Coconut Dog Treats

We all know dogs love yogurt, and these treats from Fruitables mix yogurt with the unique flavor of coconut are for a dog who is looking for a sweet treat.

#9 – LickORish

These treats not only have strawberries in them, which you don’t see often, but it’s combined with salmon for a truly unusual taste for your dog. Sound gross? My dogs LOVE them. And they are not only made in the USA, but the ingredients are sourced from here as well.

#10 – Emunity Treats

As the name implies, these treats are made with Emu. Why? According to the company, emu is low in fat and high in protein, is a “lean protein source,” and most dogs are not allergic to it. Their emu is free-range and the treats are sourced and made in the USA.
