Comparison of American Made Dog Treats

by Spend on America Editor on May 12, 2017

Here’s a quick rundown of the best rated American Made Dog Treats.

There are plenty of good reasons to want the treats for your dog to be made here in the USA. In this case, supporting the economy is the least of our concern. There have been some scary incidents in the past where dogs have been poisoned by tainted products; a nightmare situation we would want to avoid at all costs for our furry friends. You want to know that your family is eating safe food from sources that can be held accountable by the full force of American safety laws, and your dog is part of your family, right?

Let’s look at some of the options for American Made Dog Treats:

  1. Rocco and Roxie Gourmet Dog Jerky Treats

    These are not the cheapest option, but if you want to spend the money on the highest quality, naturally made dog treats that is universally loved by dogs, this is your choice. They are also known to be a great and caring company, which is always nice when we’re deciding who to support with our dollars.
  2. A Mutt’s Story Jerky Treats

    These soft bite sized dog treats are a slightly less expensive option, but no less loved by the average dog. They are non-greasy and have no fillers such as gluten or soy–nothing but quality beef. Don’t try to save a few dollars by getting junk food for your dog! The small size of these individual treats makes them great for rewards or training purposes.
  3. Pawstruck Cheese and Bacon Filled Dog Bones

    (Click Here To Purchase)

    For something longer lasting and more substantial, you’ll want a bone chew. These American Made treats consist of femur bones stuffed with bacon and cheese. Great for your dog’s teeth, and crammed full of ingredients any dog would love, these are an excellent choice for your best friend. This is a company with high standards and reliable products.
  4. Pawstruck Cow Ears for Dogs

    (Click Here To Purchase)

    Of course we had to include some kind of ears. Dogs love to chew on ears. Don’t be surprised to see 2 products from Pawstruck on this list. They do things the natural way, without chemicals or dangerous ingredients. Be warned, however; these can be messy. If you have nice carpets down on your floors I would go with one of the other options. This had to make the list anyway because dogs certainly love them.
  5.  Zuke’s Super Tasty Greens Blend Dog Treats

    (Click Here to Purchase)

    Here’s your best option if you want American Made Dog Treats with no meat. These healthful treats are made with berries and contain no wheat, corn or soy. Despite not having meat, most people find that their dogs love these treats from Zukes!

Let me just reiterate that if you’re living in America you should NEVER buy Chinese made dog treats. Support our economy, support your neighbors, and most importantly, support your best friend the dog. You can buy these treats knowing that your dog will be getting the best quality snacks on the market.
