9 Of The Best Treats for French Bulldogs
If you have read our Frenchie Training guide, you will know how important it is to reward your French Bulldog.
Even if you are not training them, it is always a nice gesture to give them a treat once in a while on top of their normal dog food (they are your babies after all).
So today, I will be going over what, in my opinion, are the best treats for French Bulldogs.
The Best French Bulldog Treats
Pup-Peroni Dog Snacks
These delicious treats are made from real beef that has been slowly cooked, giving them an amazing moist flavor.
Having around 30-40 sticks in each 40-ounce bag, they will be sure to last a while. Especially if you cut them in half as I do for my Frenchies (they also have a handy indent in them so you can easily break them in two)
Pampered Pets USA
Another oven baked treat here, that is perfect for when you are training your Frenchie.
The Pampered Pets USA dog treats come in 4 different flavors: Cheese & bacon, Oatmeal & Pumpkin, Roasted Turkey & Sweet Potato, as well as my dogs favorite, Cowboy Classic
These treats are also very easy to break up into multiple smaller pieces that are perfect for your French Bully.
Zuke’S Mini Naturals – Duck
Zuke’S Mini Naturals Duck flavored treats are a very underrated treat that any dog will love.
With their small size, they are mainly for smaller dogs. However, if you have a larger dog, then giving them an extra treat or two will do no harm as they are only around 3 calories per each.
The Mini Naturals don’t contain any Wheat, Corn or Soy, so they are perfect for dogs with specific grain free dietary needs
Zuke’S Superfood Blend
Another Wheat, Corn and Soy free product from Zuke’s.
These guys sure know how to make a tasty, well-balanced, healthy dog treat.
The Superfood blend is a natural meat-free treat that contains green beans, peas, broccoli, spinach, kelp and asparagus, all the nutrients and antioxidants that your dog could ever need.
Just make sure that the ‘meat free’ label does not make you think that your dog won’t eat them. My Frenchie goes hyper just at the sight of the package!
This is one of the best dog treats I have tried on the list due to its small serving size and healthy contents and is a permanent fixture on my shopping list.
DreamBone Dog Chews Bacon & Cheese
Up next is a Rawhide-free, easily digestible treat made by Dreambone.
This one contains multiple healthy vitamins and minerals that will help to keep your dog healthy and also keep their teeth nice and clean due to the chewiness of them.
I think that it is important that your dog has a decent chewable, bone type of treat every now and then, and this product is a safe replacement for a real or rawhide bone.
K9 Rescue Rations Peanut Butter Delight
Let me first start off with the following: DO NOT give your dog peanut butter. It can be very harmful to all dog breeds due to them containing a type of alcohol called Xylitol.
Luckily, K9’s Rescue Rations are made from a type of non-toxic peanut butter that does not contain Xylitol.
The fact is, dogs love the taste of peanut butter, and these treats are the perfect way to give them what they love.
They are small and soft, so even older dogs won’t have trouble chewing them.
Canine Carry Outs Dog Treats
This reasonably priced product is my go-to treat to take on walks.
My dog loves them and if she decided to ignore my commands, and run away, she comes straight back once she sees that I have brought these out on our trip.
If you get the 50 oz bag that I usually get, then they can last a full month or two. Not bad considering the low price of them
They are also available in smaller bags, though price wise, I would stick to the larger bag.
But what are they like?
Small, soft, and slightly chewable with a big flavor
OraVet Dental Hygiene Chews
Dental hygiene is very important when it comes to taking care of your French Bulldog.
So you will need a handy way to help clean the dog’s teeth.
This chew is number one when it comes to giving your dog an award-winning smile (can dog even smile? I don’t know..)
The OraVet Dental Hygiene Chews help clear any bacterial attachment and plaque that your dog may have built up, as well as help keep your dog’s breath nice and fresh.
Each one of these treats releases delmopinol.
Delmopinol is an ingredient that coats the teeth and tongue and helps defend against bacteria by forming a protective barrier.
My French Bully loves these and due to the fact that she won’t let me brush her teeth (I have to get them done professionally), these things are a life saver.
Who doesn’t love bacon? Not your dog that’s for sure.
So why not treat them to these lovely treats that are basically strips of pure 100% bacon that have been dried.
No added flavors or anything.
The only downside is that sometimes when I have ordered them, they have come all crumbled up.
This has only happened twice out of about the twenty times I have ordered them though.
What About Homemade Dog Treats?
Homemade dog treats are quite fun to make and have some benefits over the store bought kind of snacks.
However, I would still recommend buying pre-made treats for your dog, unless you know exactly what to include in your dog’s diet.
Lets briefly look at the advantages and disadvantages of making your own dog treats vs buying them.
- It can be a lot cheaper to make your own as you can bulk buy the ingredients.
- You can create whatever flavor you want. Does your dog love bacon? Make some bacon ones, veggies? Make those…
- Sometimes it can be more convenient to make them than to order them or take a trip to the shops.
- If your Frenchie has any dietary needs, then you can easily create a treat catered to them.
- There are thousands of tasty recipes to be found online for your dog to try out.
- It is possible to make your own dog food
- You can create different shaped treats by using special molds. My favorite is the ‘Le Dogue Mini Dog Paw and Bone Silicone Baking Tray Molds’ as they look quite cute and it comes with a handy recipe book to get you started.
