4 under-$10 dog treats greyhounds will love

Whether or not your dog is food motivated, finding the perfect treat may be essential to her training regimen or even her day-to-day life. Especially for more athletic dogs, treats for greyhounds need to be more than just delicious — they need to be satisfying, too. But just remember to store dog food correctly to make it last the longest it can.

The best dog treats have whole, real foods as their first ingredients — meats, produce, and whole grains (unless you opt for a grain-free food for your pup). Treats are a great way to get extra protein into your dog’s diet without adding to their meals. Plus, they’re a fantastic motivator. What are you waiting for?

Merrick Power Bites Real Beef Dog Treats

  • First ingredient is real deboned beef
  • Grain-free and gluten-free
  • Good for dogs with sensitivities to poultry products

These tiny treats have all of what you do want and none of what you don’t. The first three ingredients in this snack are real deboned beef, potatoes, and peas, which are all full of healthy vitamins, nutrients, and carbohydrates to keep your greyhound fit and active. With added minerals and a protein-packed punch, these small bites will keep your pup full for longer, too.

You won’t find any grains, gluten, or sorbic acid in these star-shaped goodies. Since there’s no poultry, either, dogs with allergies and food sensitivities won’t have any issues at all. Although they’re already small, you can easily break them into bite-sized pieces to make training as easy — and rewarding — as pie.

Hill’s Grain-Free Soft-Baked Naturals with Chicken & Carrots

  • No corn, wheat, artificial colors and flavors, soy, or preservatives
  • Real chicken is the first ingredient
  • Comes in a resealable bag

For greyhounds who are not sensitive to chicken or poultry products, Hill’s Soft-Baked Naturals make a perfect treat for literally any time. The high-quality chicken ingredients are a great source of lean protein and energy for your athletic pup, and the absence of corn, wheat, artificial colors and flavors, soy, and preservatives will leave you feeling confident in your choices.

With a resealable bag, you won’t need to worry about using these treats as quickly as you can. They’ll stay soft and chewy as long as you need them to, though proper treat storage will help them last even longer!

Stewart Pro-Treat Beef Liver Freeze-Dried Raw Dog Treats

  • Beef liver is the only ingredient
  • Good for dogs with food allergies or sensitivities
  • Made in the U.S.

While the benefits of freeze-dried dog treats are still being counted to this day, they’re a popular choice among vets and pet parents alike. These freeze-dried goodies from Stewart combine as “The Original Dog Training Treat.” These bite-sized morsels will be a perfect snack for your greyhound at any time — whether you’re rewarding your pup or simply sharing a moment together. (Maybe just don’t share the snack, too!)

The only ingredient is — you guessed it, beef liver. It’s been freeze-dried to perfection for an excellent treat every time. The package includes a helpful guide to creating the optimal serving size for your four-legged athlete — about four treats per serving three times a day is just the right amount.

Blue Dog Bakery Natural Dog Treats

  • Non-GMO
  • Helps clean teeth and freshen breath
  • No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives

Whether your greyhound prefers sweet, savory, or farm-fresh flavors, these assorted treats have it all. They’re crunchy, fun-sized, and non-GMO. Not only are they all-natural, but they also help freshen your pup’s breath while providing little to no fat per serving.

But how do they clean teeth and freshen breath? Their bumpy texture helps stimulate gums and gently scrape the teeth, just like a good brushing. Since they’re made of whole ingredients like molasses, eggs, and oats, you know your beloved buddy is truly getting the best of the best. With recipes dating back to 1988, Blue Dog Bakery has had tons of time to evolve and perfect their canine-driven recipes. It must be pup-approved!

With these four options — plus tons of others you may come across in research — your greyhound is bound to have a lot of delicious treats in her future! No worries if it takes some time to find the perfect treat to get your dog going; they’re all under $10 per bag, as are many other high-quality treats for large breeds.

What do blueberries, kale, and broccoli all have in common? In addition to being delicious, all three are superfoods, labeled by the health food world. Unfortunately, there's no federally regulated definition for the term, but Harvard scientists claim food that "offers high levels of desirable nutrients, is linked to the prevention of a disease, or is believed to offer several simultaneous health benefits beyond its nutritional value" can be labeled superfoods. 

Just like you might add chia seeds to your granola or spirulina powder to your smoothies for additional vitamins and minerals, you also want to make sure your dog's food and treats pack a beneficial wallop. Made famous on Shark Tank, Himalayan dog chews have become one of the most hotly debated treats in the pet food game, which begs the question, "Are Himalayan dog chews as healthy as some people think?"

It can cause new puppy parents to panic — you love your fur baby, and appetite is often a sign of good health. Plus, your puppy needs food to grow and to have energy for walking and playing with you.
If your puppy is not eating much (or at all), there may be several causes. Here are the most common and what you can do to get your little one’s mealtimes back on track.
