While we do know some of these are not the best options to feed dogs on a regular basis, they are fine when given as treat here and there.
When we say not the best option, we do not mean it is toxic for the dog. We only mean that they could lead to obesity or other health issues if given often or in large quantities.
Much the same as it is for people too!
With that said, below you will find a list of places that serve treats for dogs. Most if not all of these, are for free too!
