You might think buying USA made treats for your dog is not that big of a deal.
However, that could be a big problem if you buy a treat that may have come from China.
The FDA has been investigating complaints about Chinese products from dog owners since 2007. There are continuing problems with products containing arsenic, lead, antibiotics, pesticides, and many other scary things that the FDA has listed as possible dangers.
There is one, fairly simple, step you can take to make sure that those special dogs in your life stay healthy.
BUY AMERICAN MADE DOG TREATS!
Yes, they might be a little more expensive in the short term. But think about the long term cost of your dog getting sick. Vet bills, not to mention quality of life (and possible death) make the case for spending a little extra money to ensure you are giving the best (and more importantly – SAFE) treats to your dog.
Let’s take a look at our Top 10 Best USA Made Dog Treats.
#1 – Cloud Star Itty Bitty Buddy Biscuits Dog Treats
When you are training a new dog these are great, because the size makes it easy to take these treats anywhere. Also, I am finding these treats are super easy to fit inside a lot of my dog toys, so they get the extra fun of a new treat to seek out!

#2 – Zuke’s Mini Naturals Dog Treats, Wild Rabbit
I love that these doggy snacks because they work for all sized dogs. They keep the attention of our large dog, as well as being small and soft enough for our 15 year old little chihuahua “Dumbo”.
Another really nice thing about Zuke’s Mini Natural Dog Treats is they come in a very convenient pouch type bag that has a strong resealable top.

The smell on this treat is a huge bonus (who wants their hands smelling like dog treats?!?!?) I find that these really smell a lot better than most treats.
The size makes it another perfect training treat.
The Ingredients are all things I feel comfortable feeding my dog (which probably contributes to them smelling so much better than some other treats).

#4 – Pet Eden Sweet Potato Dog Treats
Food allergies can have a huge impact on a dogs quality of life! It is nice that these are made to not be to heavy on sensitive dogs.
Our dogs love to do their tricks, and be rewarded with a Seet Potato treat.
- Grain Free – Great for dogs with sensitive stomachs or food allergies. Absolutely no harmful additives or preservatives are used. Simply 100% dehydrated sweet potatoes with no fillers or ingredients you cannot pronounce. A great vegetarian alternative.

#5 – Waveland Paws Organic Dog Treats
These are so nice, because not only do my dogs jump for joy because of the taste, they are also all grass-fed beef, so you are not giving any unwanted fillers.
And not only are these treat made in the USA, but all of the ingredients that go into the snacks are also made in the USA!

#6 – Rocco & Roxie Gourmet Jerky Dog Treat
I love that the 1lb package has 27 sticks included. And each of those sticks can be split into 3 sections (maybe even 4 if you have a very tiny little buddy). This means that a 1lb bag goes a long way for smaller dogs.
And unlike some treats that are almost impossible for me to break into smaller pieces, these are a piece of cake with no mess.
- HEALTHY & NATURAL – You want only the best for your best friend. So the premium treats we make at Rocco & Roxie are never enhanced with artificial flavoring or fillers like corn, soy and gluten. They are naturally irresistible. Like dogs.
- SECRET FAMILY RECIPE DOGS LOVE – What’s the secret to these tasty treats? We start with all-American beef of the highest quality. The second ingredient is time. It takes a full 10 hours of smoking to develop that soft chewy texture dogs love.
- 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED – We have been told that even the most finicky dogs love our Jerky Sticks. But don’t take our word for it. Break off a piece, see if that tail wags. Tails are such a give-away.
- PERFECT TRAINING TREAT – Your dog accomplishes a task; he gets a treat. He gets a treat he really really loves and that makes him want to learn more. Our treats are super motivating!
- NO-STINK HANDS – Unlike artificially enhanced dog treats that leave a greasy, smelly residue on your hands, these feel and smell just like a delicious piece of beef jerky

#9 – Pet Factory Beefhide | Dog Chews
OK, I admit this one made the list, because they last longer than most other treats. We don’t use them for training, but they are great as a “just because” or to keep your dog occupied while you are cooking dinner.
We have a growing (80+ pound) puppy that needs something that he cannot destroy in 2 seconds. He can chew on these things for WAY longer than most other treats.
The peanut butter flavor went over well with all the dogs in our family!
