Dr. Dalton’s Premium Treats Review

I want to let you know about the high-quality, single-ingredient dog treats from Dr. Dalton’s Premium Treats.

Dr. Dalton’s treats are made from dried raw chicken, beef or pork, and the company says its treats are sourced, produced and packaged in the United States.

My dogs went nuts over Dr. Dalton’s treats, and I’m sure your dogs will love them too.

What I think of Dr. Dalton’s Premium Treats

My two dogs love these snacks, and I don’t have to worry about the ingredients because these are single-ingredient treats made from real meat. They contain no salt, coloring, sugar, sweeteners, gluten, grain, chemicals or preservatives. Just meat.

Another nice thing about Dr. Dalton’s treats is they are designed by a dog trainer for dog training (more on that below). The treats are not greasy so I can keep them directly in my pocket on walks or at training classes. They also break easily into smaller pieces.

Dr. Dalton’s Premium Treats are available in “simply beef,” “simply chicken” or the “meat medley” which contains chicken, beef and pork.

The treats are small and crunchy, about 1.5” in length.

What is the cost? Plus a coupon code!

On Dr. Dalton’s website, the treats are $14.99 for a 3-ounce bag or $28.99 for a 6-ounce bag.

You can use code thatmutt10 on your first order for 10% off. (Not valid on subscription orders.)

Of course, higher-quality treats are going to cost more than average. The treats from Dr. Dalton’s do not contain excess water since they have been dried. Therefore, each 3-ounce bag has about 45-50 treats and will last you quite a while.

The company says it uses only high-grade, quality muscle meat, and because excess water is removed and no fillers are added, there is no need for Dr. Dalton’s to add preservatives, binders, flavorings, colorings, etc. The final product is 80% crude protein, according to the package.

More about Dr. Susan Dalton

Dr. Susan Dalton is a certified professional dog trainer who uses positive reinforcement training methods. Her business, California School for Dogs, offers both group classes and private lessons.

Her website says she has trained hundreds of dogs and specializes in helping dogs with fear and aggression.

Treats are obviously a big component in Dr. Dalton’s training program, so she started making her own treats in 2012 using simple, clean ingredients, according to her website. It was her training clients who actually convinced her to make the treats available for purchase.

Pros of Dr. Dalton’s Premium Treats

  • Made with real, high-quality meat

  • Breaks easily to smaller pieces for training

I recommend Dr. Dalton’s Premium Treats for training because they are not greasy and you can keep them directly in your pocket. They are also a good choice if you are a raw feeder or are looking to feed your dog a higher-quality treat for training, snacks, etc.

  • Cost is a bit higher (but good quality of course)
  • You could make similar treats yourself by dehydrating meat

These might not be for you if they’re out of your budget or if you prefer to make dehydrated treats yourself.

  1. I have a Great Dane who seems to be allergic to EVERYTHING! I’ve been cooking for him — chicken, potatoes and carrots. As you can imagine, that’s a lot of cooking. I don’t even cook for myself. I also bake peanut butter and cheerio treats. I’d love to have something in the cupboard for the times when the kitchen isn’t calling me!

    1. I’d lessen the carbs – use veggies with more nutrition like pumpkin or leafy greens, green beans, broccoli, etc.
      There are many recipes online for treats and they’re so easy to make. A very popular one with my Danes is bacon cheddar cookies. I grind my own oats to make the flour – so easy and cheaper! Carbs (sugars) tend to cause a lot of issues including sensitivity and allergies and reducing them may help your dog’s issues.

  2. I’m about to get a Silken Windhound (a birthday present from my husband) and I have a senior Min Pin who has liver problems. So single ingredients are extremely important to me. Thanks for the offer!

  3. I love getting these kind of simple treats for my dog! I haven’t tried Dr. Dalton’s yet, but I’m always looking for new treats for her!!

  4. Zeus Dog would love these! (OK truth time – Zeus is a black lab. Labs like everything)

    These treats sound similar to some I can occasionally get at Costco. They are wonderful for training. As a result of our very hard and persistent work – and lots of treats – Zeus almost has proper door bell manners.

  5. Recently become a new puppy parent, she’s saint-Bernard and lab mix; will be 14 weeks old in a few days … were always looking for yummy healthy treats specially for training sessions. Awesome offer, thank you!

  6. my almost 2 year old lab has acid reflux, I have to be very careful about what I give him. I always have treats with me in case a store employee offers him one [jhome depot!] and I cant let him have it. would love healthy treats which which also appeal to him.

  7. My dog Jackpot is currently in a few training classes, so we go thru lots of treats. I like to rotate the treats. These would be great for “jackpot” treating….

  8. Our pit mix is very treat motivated – he will do anything for a tasty treat- he has fear and low confidence and we are working with a trainer to help resolve these issues. Thank you

  9. These treats would be great for my girls! I love that they’re single ingredient treats and sourced in the US. They’re the perfect size for training.

  10. Now that I have a second rescue pup, 7 years old, along with my 6 year old, both treat obsessed, with sensitive tummies, it would be wonderful to be able to have them try these treats! Thank you.

  11. I will be getting a wonderful golden doodle in the spring (our second one) and am so excited! I love your blog and the many helpful and informative tips. I am very nutrition conscious for my dogs and will certainly try these treats. Thanks for your dedication to man’s (and woman’s) best friend!

  12. Clementine my beagle is the first dog I’ve met that doesn’t like peanut butter so buying treats can be a hassle. Thanks for the discount code on these, I’m sure she will love them!

  13. Benny (who is my pride and joy, the yorkie) would love these! I don’t usually give him treats for various reasons but I might make an exception for these healthy treats.

  14. Yager is such a comfort to me. My mom loves his visits. He likes to bark a lot. But our good boy!

    Thanks for your time.

  15. I would love to try these healthy treats to train my 2 rescue furbabies. Stella has a sensitive tummmy so I think these would be especially good for her.

  16. I would love to win some treats for my 3 pups! We kind of inherited all of our dogs from family members so that they would have loving homes. We have a 13 year old shih tzu, an 8 year old pitbull/boxer mix, and a 9 month old pomsky. That puppy especially loves treats. Haha.

  17. Since training is an ongoing thing with Lambeau, having good quality treats that can be used as training treats is great for us. I like the single ingredient aspect of these, and I am sure Lambeau would love them!

  18. Did someday treat?! I am currently home making all of my dogs treats and Mama needs a break. These look just right

  19. I have an extremely picky dog, who won’t even eat certain treats. I would love to try out a new treat that is meat with him as I am sure he would like if it was made of real meat.

  20. My two Siberian Huskies would be thrilled to win some new, delicious treats! And I would love to win as well! Thy are very food-driven and LOVE to learn some new tricks which I will teach them with these.

  21. I definitely am. My dog eats just about anything. He loves salad. So a healthy treat option with his appetite for anything would be great.

  22. They sound pawsome! I like that they are a premium treat that contains no sugar or salt 🙂 My dogs would love a bag of the chicken 🙂 Thanks for the chance!

  23. My dog Bones is very much a part of the family and,I want only the best in food and treats for his sell being. He’s about three as adopted him last year. He was nothing but bones and no history. Love the offer to win something good for him to find him a new favorite that I can feel great about giving him. Thanks.

  24. Single ingredient treats made with meat that is sourced and packaged in the USA are the only way my pup gets his snacks! Thanks for the chance to win a bag for him!

  25. My dog, Handsome, is on a super restricted diet because he’s allergic to almost everything. Single ingredient treats like these are hard to find and worth it when you do.

  26. My very large rescue GSD would love these. Our trainer told us to buy the highest quality dog food we can afford to help with his very hyper personality. I wonder if these treats would prevent him from getting a doggie sugar rush?

  27. My rescued dog Dolly needs to try these treats since we are highly focused on the best nutrition, making up for her approximately 9 previous years of poor nutrition when she was a breeder at a small puppy mill. Dolly had to fight for everything she had and we want her to have only the best now.

  28. Like the idea of having quality, non-greasy treats to encourage my dog clients to stick close to the pet sitter.

  29. I’d love to try these for my pups (I have 6!). Like that they’re USA sourced with no added sugars or fillers. I can barely make fresh food for myself so I won’t be dehydrating my own treats.

  30. I have three rescue dogs, ages 5-9. I try to feed them the best i can afford to, but feeding three dogs is very expensive.
    Our oldest, a Coonhound, has terrible seasonal allergies. The Vet placed her on steroids for months. She ended up with pancreatitis from the drugs, and has had stomach issues, ever since. She (they) needs a healthy option for treats.
    Thank you from my family.

    my girls love all natural treats. I think they would love the beef. I think I get their emails b/c I am familiar with the Dalton name. I like that there is no sugar or additives to the treats. costs is not a factor when it comes to giving my 2 gals the best. I read the ingredients on everything I give them.

  32. These treats sound great! I have two little dogs and I like that you said they could be broken to smaller portions, and that they could be carried in a pocket without making a mess. Thanks for the contest, fingers crossed.

  33. Oops, I’m not sure what happened to my original comment. Seek and I would love to dive into a bag of Dr. Dalton’s Meat Medley.

  34. Abby by 12 yr old lab mix has been having a lot of digestive issues. Is losing weight and is very itchy. Scratches constantly unless I have her on Apoquel. She loves to eat and loves loves loves treats. I know she’d love to try these. Thanks for the opportunity to try these.

  35. LOVE this blog! I have a four pound teacup poodle that is my emotional therapy dog (I have multiple sclerosis). She is on a raw diet and is SO picky about everything! She will not eat anything but beef! LOL! I love the raw diet trend and am very grateful for the opportunity to feed my dog a healthy diet! The fact that these treats are all natural, have no added chemicals and are good for her is awesome!

    I was sorry to hear about that poor Mama and her fur baby and the “C” word. My prayers go out to them! My fur babies Eva and Echo are new to raw and we are still adjusting and trying to get on the best feeding schedule with them. One thing they absolutely enjoy is chicken jerky! I want to make my own one day, but for now I buy the most natural I can find! Hope to try these very soon!

  37. Hi,

    Have a 4 month old pup, that this is the first time for feeding him raw and healthy! And treats like this would be great to see if he likes them first and then continue ordering them. There are so many varieties out there and you are never absolutely sure of what is really healthy! Thanks for doing this!

  38. i am slowly moving into a raw diet for my dogs. I do seen that with the small tweeks to their diet my dogs have more energy and well…they smile a lot more. Which both are important, i can’t tell you how it lights me up to see my senior dog smiling. He hasn’t done that in a couple years.

  39. I would love to try a healthier treat option for my dog. I have celiac so I always use grain free treats to prevent contaminating my house so these sound perfect.

  40. I have a 16 week old golden retriever puppy and we are working everyday on training so good quality treats are a must.

  41. Trying to learn all we can about a raw food diet. We are looking to get 2 baby English Mastiffs. Lost our baby to cancer.
