Everything You Need to Know About Freeze-Dried Dog Treats

When it comes to freeze-dried dog treats, the options can seem endless. There are so many different types of treats out there, it can make even the most seasoned dog food shopper get overwhelmed and say, “Woof!” 

Are you wondering, “What’s the best training treat for my dog?” “What are freeze-dried dog treats?” “Are freeze-dried dog treats healthy?” Then you’re in the right spot!

Wholesome Pride has a line of raw, freeze-dried, limited-ingredient, grain-free dog treats. And we want to give you the full scoop on why we love them. 

Many freeze-dried protein treats are simple, healthy dog treats made with limited ingredients and only the good stuff. 

From beef liver and turkey to chicken flavor, there are many varieties for pet parents to choose from — without worrying about a mile-long list of suspect ingredients, additives, and preservatives.

What Is a Raw Freeze-Dried Dog Treat?

Raw dog treats or raw dog foods include raw meat, vegetables, and fruit, as well as other dehydrated and freeze-dried products. (Raw cat treats like beef heart or chicken liver usually nix the fruits and veggies as cats are obligate carnivores.)

Basically, if the treats are prepared without being heated up to boiling temperature, they can be called ‘raw.’ The freeze-drying process removes moisture at low temperatures. These uncooked treats will fit into your dog’s lifestyle seamlessly if they follow a raw diet.

Much like the food NASA astronauts pack for space missions, a raw freeze-dried treat takes that uncooked food and freeze-dries it for a much (much) longer shelf life! 

Our salmon, beef liver, and chicken treats are excellent for rewarding your pup with a high-value treat they’ll LOVE! Here’s why:
