So why I am so stoked about single-ingredient dog treats? Well, I want to know what makes it into my dogs’ bodies. I don’t want to have to decipher and figure out what those hard-to-read chemicals on long ingredient lists are and whether or not they have any harmful side effects when fed on a regular basis.
Besides not feeding your pups nutritiously empty fillers and artificial ingredients, the beauty about single-ingredient treats is that they’re great for dogs with sensitive stomachs & allergies.
If you already know that your dog is allergic to a specific protein (let’s say chicken or lamb), you can simply avoid buying any treats containing that particular protein and go for something else (maybe beef or rabbit).
Check with your vet to find out what your dog is allergic to or order a bioenergetic scan online – I found out what Missy does poorly on with Pet Medella’s Bioenergetic Scan (click to read my review).

Now without further ado, the following are my favorite single-ingredient treats:
Boo Boo’s Best – Dehydrated
Dr. Harvey’s – Dehydrated & Freeze-Dried
Real Dog (formerly known as Real Pet Food ) – Air-Dried
Subscription Box containing variety of air-dried food items.
Beef Green Tripe
Wild-Caught Alaskan Pollock
Salmon Skin & Chunks (oily)
Pure Bites Pet Treats – Freeze-Dried
Tukabear Treats – Freeze-Dried
Vital Essentials – Freeze-Dried
All single-ingredient treat brands mentioned above only made it on this list of recommendations because I have fed them, have been very satisfied with their products, and my dogs Missy, Buzz, & Wally have done exceedingly well with everything they’ve had. Please know that I have only listed the treats we have actually used, and that every brand has a larger product selection.
