Carrots & fruits are great treats. Just remember NO seeds or pits!!! There's a thread on here of things that dogs should not eat!! Dehydrated meat like chicken, liver, etc. made right in your own oven or dehydrator. This question seems to be coming up several times. When you give treats like this from your own house, you know your pups are getting nothing but real fruit & meat, little to no preservatives. Store bought treats have too many added ingrediants. That's why I never buy treats for my chi. She either doesn't get any or I share my banana, apple, watermelon, etc. I feed her raw, so that's a treat all in itself for her. I do plan to get a dehydrator soon so I can make her jerky treats, but it's not a have-to-have.
