Try tumbleweed and eddies! Our dogs are crazy over them and they bake all of their treats themselves. Also no shipping costs.

I give my dog Zukes treats - I just saw them sold at Petco last night, which is good - they were previously sold at smaller shops.

I would LOVE to do this but how do you slice the chicken thin enough? When it's defrosted, it's so wet and wiggly, how do you manage to slice it into pieces that are thin enough?

Try slicing it when it's still mostly frozen, use a very sharp knife and be careful.

You can easily make jerky in your oven at the lowest setting. The tip about slicing meat partially frozen really works .

We don't usually go out and buy treats, but if we do, he LOVES Beggin' Strips. But normally, we give him those mini-carrots which we cut up, and he likes tiny pieces of wheat bread on occasion. He also likes apples.

Oh! Here's something new that my dog goes crazy for - my trainer gave it to her last week in obedience class and she did everything I asked, lol. It's a roll-on (looks like deodorant) that is basically broth - they lick it and it's not fattening. Seems to have decent ingredients:

Liquid Dog Treats | PetSafe Treats for Dogs | PetSafe

I don't know much about Pet Safe as a company, but the ingredients are (for the chicken):

Natural chicken flavor, cultured milk, lecithin, mixed tocopherols (natural preservative- a source of vitamin E), ascorbyl palmitate (source of vitamin C), rosemary extract, green tea extract
