Review: Pupford Freeze Dried Dog Training Treats


Recent recalls and canine illnesses related to toxins in dog food and treats are pushing pet owners to pay more attention to what they're feeding their pups. These quality control problems are spurring owners to search for high-quality, natural foods made with healthy, safe ingredients. Pupford Freeze Dried Dog Training Treats are single ingredient treats made with only top-quality ingredients.

Freeze dried treats are an excellent option, as long as you know what to look for. Most of these treats are made with a single ingredient: the protein source. Some may have added vitamins and minerals, making them a beneficial option for your pet's overall health and well-being.

Thankfully, you won't have anything to worry about with these Pupford Freeze Dried Treats. Pupford uses a freeze drying process that maintains all the nutritional benefits of the whole food ingredients without the risk of contamination.

Pupford Freeze Dried Dog Training Treats Review

Pupford Freeze Dried Dog Training TreatsThese dog treats are available in 2 flavors – beef liver and sweet potato. The beef liver variety is featured in my video review above. They are made with only beef liver and pea protein. Pea protein is rich in antioxidants and is used to hold the treats together.

The sweet potato dog treats are made with a single ingredient – sweet potato, of course. Both varieties of Pupford Freeze Dried Dog Training Treats contain less than 2 kcals per treat. This is why they are such a good option to use during training.

While training your pet, you'll need to reward him frequently. If you reward him with high calorie treats, he'll begin to gain unnecessary weight. Low calorie treats should be used for any type of training, from obedience to agility.

Ingredients: 95% freeze-dried pure beef liver, 5% pea protein
Guaranteed Analysis: crude protein (min): 61 %, crude fat (min): 5%, crude fiber (max): 5%, moisture (max): 6% and less than 2 kcal per treat

I did notice that there are a lot of crumbs in the bottom of the bag. While some people may be disappointed by this, I like it. I use the crumbs as a delicious food topper for our dogs.

You could certainly use these treats for any purpose, but the powerful aroma of the beef liver and/or sweet potato easily draws your dog's attention. They entice your dog and hold his attention, which is exactly what you want when you're training.
