Chicken Healthy Dog Treats options

If you want tasty Chicken Dog Treats you have come to the right dog treat shop!

Our chicken dog treats range from the almost 100% chicken to the lower end of approximately 40% chicken in the composite treats.

The reason that you are likely to want to buy chicken dog treats is that it is one of the most common meats used in dog food, so your dog is probably already used to it. If it isn’t allergic to chicken used in dog food, then its very unlikely to have issues with our chicken breast dog treats.

There is a theory that many dogs evolved to eat chicken and birds beyond all animals because since most dogs are much smaller than wolves, birds and small prey are the kinds of animals that most dogs would have adapted to eat.

The chicken breast dog treat truth.

Chicken breast or any high percentage chicken dog treat are a great protein source and VERY easy to eat for all dogs.

Standard chicken breast typically has around 10% animal fat content, If its much higher than this, they have included too much skin or rendered fat instead of the quality meat.

If you are buying very low fat chicken (1-2%) , the meat has been highly rendered (heat treated) which can destroy the proteins and render the nutrition value low. Blackdog chicken breast dog treats are said to have a fat content of around 4%.

The fact that chicken breast is mostly whole cuts of meat means that while it is easy to eat, a dog still needs to rip and sherd it apart, so the jerky can still help clean their teeth.

Chicken jerky used in dog treats typically has a VERY high percentage of meat (usually above 97%). The only reason that it isn’t 100% like beef jerky or kangaroo or fish dog treats products is that just drying chicken doesn’t make it very palatable. It easily over-dries and become a tough and just not enjoyable. That is why soy protein and glycerine are typically added as the second and third ingredients.

If you look at the high and great protein level on Chicken breast (blackdog is 71%) you can see how the very high meat content translates to the very high (and good) protein amount that is required by carnivore dogs to make up for the very low minimum level required in dog food (19%).

The other high meat content on the page is Duck Jerky. The great thing about this treat is like chicken, it has a very high meat content with the small percentage of additives only added to make the meat more palatable and soft (and not spoil).

The other high meat content and HARDEST of the chicken treats is cow hooves with Chicken mince stuffed and dried into them. For dogs requiring a longer harder treat, that then has a NATURAL reward for all of their efforts, this could be your new go to chicken treat.

Composite chicken dog treats.

The next set of chicken  treats that we can highly recommend are composite treats (have wheat added). These are Chicken meat balls, chicken crinkles and Chicken sticks. The reason we recommend these is that they are highly affordable and have at least 40% chicken meat (higher than many dog foods).

The other composite chicken dog treats we carry are Chicken discs and Chicken skewers by blackdog.  These both have higher amounts of meat than the above composite products – the only caveat is that while highly trusted sources, blackdog still source these last two from OS.

CONCLUSION

If you are after straight chicken dog treats, we have two types, Aussie Chicken breast, and blackdog chicken breast (OS source). They both have similar very high percentage of meat (97% plus, with a small number of safe additives for taste and softening effects.

The composite chicken dog treats are ALL about the meat content of most dog food (40% plus). Most are sourced locally in Australia, while two legacy Blackdog products are still sourced from safe OS sources of theirs.
