Easy low fat, low calorie dog treats from your local grocery store
- Baby Carrots
Dogs love the crunch of baby carrots. A couple of these can go a long way and reward your dog for great behavior.
- Apple Slices
Cubes or slices of fresh apples are a great treat for dogs without adding too many calories and they are fat free, which is always a bonus.
- Banana (piece)
Bananas provide fiber and potassium, but are higher in calories than some other fruits so be careful how much banana you give.
- Rice Cakes
Small rice cakes are a great treat for dogs, especially if you opt for brown rice cakes. It’s better to choose unsalted if you can but one rice cake with salt is fine too.
- Sweet Potato Slices
Wash a sweet potato and half it lengthwise. Then cut long lengthwise slices and place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Places the slices in the oven at 250 degrees for about 3 hours for chewy slices or longer for for crunchier slices.
