The Healthier Choice: Air-Dried Dog Treats for Your Furry Friend

Johnna Devereaux C.P.N.

As pet parents, we always strive to provide the best for our furry companions, and this includes their treats. When it comes to dog treats, there is a wide range of options available, but one type stands out for its numerous benefits; air-dried dog treats. In this blog, we will explore why air-dried treats, like our reformulated Waggy Wafers,  are a more nutritious and delicious choice, how they differ from other treats and why you as pet parents should consider incorporating them into your dog’s diet.

Air-dried—what does this mean?  Exactly as it sounds, the air-drying process is a slow and gentle one that removes moisture through evaporation with low, or no, heat. This drying process is highly beneficial because it retains the natural flavors of the ingredients being used (as well as their nutrients) and are naturally preserved. Let me repeat that--not only are air-dried dog treats minimally processed but they also retain more of the natural vitamins, minerals and enzymes present in the ingredients making for better nutrition for your pup! One more bonus—this process also locks in flavor and concentrates it—making an intensified taste that will get your furry friend’s full attention and cooperation!

Now that we know air-dried treats offer so many benefits, how do they differ from other treats? Baked and dehydrated treats are usually made using high heat. This high heat process destroys most of the nutrients and requires additional preservatives be added back to the treats, which may cause digestive issues or trigger reactions in dogs that have specific sensitivities or allergies. 

Our reformulated Waggy Wafer treats are all air-dried, with three unique formulations that offer specialized nutritional benefits for all dogs.  Each recipe, (Chicken, Turkey, and Surf + Turf,) includes high-quality, human-grade ingredients that benefit different bodily functions to suit your pup’s unique needs. Plus - they offer a delicious flavor that your dog will drool over! Not only are they nutrient-dense and provide more benefits per bite than traditional treats, they are ideal for day-to-day treating, training and for use as high-value rewards for dogs ranging from puppy to senior! 

When it comes to selecting treats for your beloved pup, air-dried dog treats are an exceptional choice. Their retained nutritional value, minimal processing, concentrated flavors and extended shelf life set them apart from other dog treats. By opting for air-dried treats you are prioritizing your dog’s health and wellness and offering them a delicious snack at the same time. 

Remember, every dog is unique and it’s always important to review the ingredient labels when choosing the best treat for your pup.
