Grain free treats

Does anyone have a suggestion for an irresitable grain free treat that wouldn't be gross to keep in a pocket? I found some things, but they're not that motivating. Jerky is out. Benji loves it, but I don't love cleaning up after him when he has it.

I'm not sure if freeze-dried liver is grain free, but that's pretty motivating and easy on the pocket (with the exception of crumbs.)

I got these duck and potato treats from pet food express ...I dont remember who they are by, but it looks like jerky sticks, but softer. It doesnt have anything except duck, potato, and glucosomine! They are great for pockets cause they are pretty clean and my dogs LOVE them. Tito will steal them out of my purse cause he loves them so much. When I go home I will find out and update this.

I was going to recommend those same ones, Daniel. There are also biscuits made with potato, fish, turkey, apples, blueberries, but I'll have to see what their name is when I go to the store tomorrow. My bag is thrown out and my boys love them. There is Mother Nature that makes some, I think, w/o any wheat.

Any jerky would be without grain - usually, as well as freeze dried liver.

Here are some sites: http://naturalpetmarket.com/

http://www.sojos.com/grain_free.html

and http://alpha-nutrition.stores.yahoo....ufrdrandb.html ..... for starters.

My Benji is allergic to grains. I use Natural Balance Duck and Potato treats (at Petco). I also use SmokeHouse Duck Chips (available at PetSmart).

Best, Poornima

Cheryl,
I think I might possibly have the pickest treat eating dogs here. The owner of the holistic pet shop where I buy my dog food, wanted me to take home this new treat she brought in to see what my dogs thought of it, as she knows I feed grain feed food and this is grain free. Well, I am happy to report they LOVE it!!! The "warning" on the side of the container even says, "Induces rapid tail waggin They are hand made too and made in California. Here is the info:

Sorry this took so long but the treats I get my kids are Loving Pets Gourmet sticks. The come in different meat flavors but I give mine the duck and potato sticks which are really just duck, potato, and glucosamine for their joints. They love them. They have other flavors too. Got them at pet food express.
