Why You Should Buy Freeze-Dried Dog Treats For Your Dog

As pet owners, we all want the best for our furry companions and providing the best possible treats is no exception. You may have come across freeze dried dog treats in your searches, but are you entirely aware of the process and health benefits of offering your pup Freeze Dried Raw Treats?

What Are ‘Freeze Dried Dog Treats’?

Freeze Drying is a technique that preserves raw nutritional ingredients such as Salmon or Lamb by drawing out the moisture at freezing temperatures. This is done to keep the meat fresh, healthy and safe. Once the moisture is removed, the meat is brought back to room temperature, making it shelf-stable and a delicious, nutrient treat for your pup. 

What Are The Benefits Of Freeze Dried Raw Dog Treats?

The most significant benefit of offering your furry friends Freeze Dried Raw Treats is that during the freeze-drying process, more of the nutritional content of the raw ingredients are kept as opposed to other methods like cooking or dehydrating meat, as you would see in most jerky treats. It also boasts several other benefits for your pup, such as:

Minimal Processing

Heat alters the chemical composition of dog foods and treats and the nutrients in these ingredients. As a result, ingredients and additives are usually added back into dog food after being cooked, which can be toxic to our dogs.

With the freeze-drying technique, due to the low temperatures and the raw product, the ingredients' chemical composition is not altered during the process and therefore does not require any added additives.

Minimal Ingredients

Good Freeze-Dried Raw Treats contain minimal ingredients and should be made without fillers, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours. Take our Lamb and Salmon Freeze Dried Raw Treats for example – every ingredient used in our products is there to serve a purpose and support your pup's overall health.

Positive Reinforcement

Positive reinforcement training uses high-value rewards for desired behaviours and is one of the most powerful tools for shaping or changing your pup’s behaviour. Did you know that most dog treats today contain unnecessary fillers, sugars or nasty chemicals that dogs shouldn’t digest? When you offer Freeze Dried Raw Treats to your pup, you reward them with a delicious raw treat and a treat that you know is a healthy nutrient and overall good for your furry friend.

Our Freeze-Dried Raw Treats are bite-sized and can be given to puppies and adults of all ages, making them perfect for positive reinforcement.

Are Freeze Dried Dog Treats Healthy?

Our Freeze Dried Raw Treats are made using the highest quality ingredients to provide high protein and healthy fats to support your pup's overall health.

Our Salmon Freeze Dried Raw Treats are perfect if you have a pup with severely itchy skin caused by allergens. A study published in Veterinary Dermatology in 2003 found that dogs significantly improved after consuming Omega-3 fatty acids for around eight weeks.

Are Freeze Dried Dog Treats Good For Dogs?

If we look back at what our dogs’ ancestors ate in the wild before they became domesticated, we will find that they primarily ate raw meat and bones, vegetables and fruit scraps. These are high protein, high-quality foods that didn’t threaten their health because they were consuming natural nutrients, vitamins, and minerals already present in these foods.

Freeze Drying is essentially the same thing and provides the same benefits for your pup, making them a fantastic treat to offer your dog!
