Nominees from each category for the Dogington Post Award have been selected based on strict criteria including dedication to animal health and welfare, providing the very best quality ingredients, and dedication to improving the lives of our dogs.
And now, presenting the nominees for Favorite Dog Treat:
Clear Conscience Pet’s Sliders TenderStikz
TenderStikz are 100% sourced and made in the USA with American beef from humane-audited ranches or vegetarian fed, hormone & antibiotic-free chicken paired with real cheddar cheese, wholesome veggies and organic flaxseed. In fact, the ingredient label reads like a gourmet meal you’d prepare for yourself! TenderStikz are the first tender, moist pet treats with NO glycerin or “vegetable” glycerin, NO propylene glycol, and NO sugars or syrups of any kind. And, of course there are no grains, gluten meals, or other high carb fillers. Just delicious, healthy, real food your dogs will love.
Clear Conscience Pet offers a variety of holistically formulated, cleanly sourced, and artisan prepared nutritional products for dogs and cats. The family-owned company follows a philosophy of uncompromising quality, ethics, and dedication to animals that extends beyond their own products. Currently, much of the pet industry views treats as unhealthy or junk food. Founder Anthony Bennie uses his time and expertise in animal nutrition to change that view – to help pet parents realize that treats can be a nutritious and important part of their dog’s diet

Sorry Nancy, my reply skipped a line. There are lots of really good companies out there, doing the right thing in their own way. Continue to support AMERICAN family-owned companies but read those labels.
All handmade, natural dog treats…no wheat, corn, soy, no animal byproducts, no added preservatives. Made in USA.
Clear conscience dog treats are fantastic!
