My dog loves anything and everything I give her. Angel is a foodie and even if you don't buy her treats and just give her some scraps, she would be happy. We buy treats and biscuits so that we can reward her while playing fetch and also while training her.
We prefer treats that are breakable or the ones that are really small because giving her big treats every time we play fetch or train her would cause her to become obese.
Here are the best dog treats that are healthy, affordable, and yummy that your pooch will love. I have tried to list only those that are tiny in size so you don't have to worry about total daily caloric intake of your dog. I have also included a couple of healthy chew treats that you can give as a "cheat treat" once in a while but these are also helpful in dental health and hygiene.
1. Chip Chops
This dog treat has been mine and Angel's favourite from ages. We have been buying Chip Chops from the time Angel was a puppy. There are really good offers on this brand and the treats are really tiny. In short, they are perfect dog treats for training :-) Available in various flavours to rotate so your dog doesn't get bored with the same taste - Chicken, Duck, Sweet Potato, Codfish, and other combinations.
2. Meat Up Dog Biscuits
If you wanna go for something baked, Meat Up is the way to go. These are made from real chicken that help in your dog's health and they have an amazing offer of buy one get one free on Amazon.in. They are hard and crunchy biscuits without any added food coloring. There are 3 different flavors: milk, chicken and mutton. Fortified with vitamins and minerals, Meat up can be given to any sized dog. This is one of the Best Selling Dog Treats on Amazon.
3. Snackers Dog Treats
These are also one of my favorites. Snackers Dog Treats are available in Just Dogs Stores. Every time we go to this pet store, we always end up buying this. There are many types and flavors, big and small, for all kinds of dogs. You can give it as a snack or as a reward. It is 100% natural and boosts the energy of your pet. It is also good for the dental health of your dog.
4. Heads Up for Tails Dog Biscuits
HUFT is a popular dog store in India. They do have they own branded dog products. If you want a pure vegetarian treat for your dog that is extremely healthy, you should buy a Heads up for Tails product. You also have non-veg treat variants that are gluten-free. So many options to choose from that you will be spoilt for choice.
These Apple and Banana flavoured gluten-free HUFT dog biscuits are Angel's favourites.

6. Pedigree Dentastix
