Dog Treats for "Just Because"
Dog Treats for "Just Because"

"Just Because" treats are snacks that are too large for training, but too small and easily eaten to qualify as chewables.

Dog obesity is a serious problem and we caution people to use care when selecting any "Just Because" treat. These treats do have calories and they do count towards your dog's daily caloric input. We personally tend to prefer the treats that publish this caloric information and that have smaller sized treats. We also like treats that are easily breakable so that we can limit calories that way.

The following are the brands carried by Green Acres Kennel Shop in our effort to provide your pet with the best nutrition possible, even in a biscuit!


Green Acres is pleased to be offering these Maine-made, all natural and organic dog biscuits from Barkwheats. These biscuits come in two varieties: Ginger and Parsley and SeaVeg and Chamomile. Each tasty treat is soy, corn and gluten free. Buckwheat pancakes were a rare treat for me in my childhood so I had to give these treats a try. Buckwheat with a hint of ginger is a delightful combination! Tikken and Dulcie are worried I might abscond with their Barkwheat biscuits!

Eagle Holistix

Eagle Holistix biscuits are made with the same concern for quality as the Eagle Holistic Select pet food line. Eagle uses only natural, human grade ingredients and their meats are antibiotic and hormone free. Both varieties of biscuits contain: organic spelt, which is high in fiber, vitamins and essential fatty acids, flaxseed and canola oil for the Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, prebiotics and probiotics to promote digestion, as well as a variety of fruits and vegetables. These crunchy treats are a favorite amongst both our canine companions and our discerning clients.

These treats are available in a 1 lb re-closable bag.

Innova EVO

The Innova EVO dog treat is truly unique. Just like the EVO dog food, the treats are high in protein and do not contain any grain. In fact, the EVO treats are the "world's first baked dog treat made with no grain!" Because of this, EVO treats are a wonderful complement to the EVO dog food or to a raw or homemade diet. Additionally, the EVO treats are perfect for feeding to dogs with food allergies to grains (such as wheat or corn).

But the goodness doesn't stop there! The ingredients of the EVO dog treats are of exceptional quality. These treats contain high quality turkey and chicken, and whole fruits and vegetables. Each treat includes antioxidant vitamins, linoleic fatty acid and the Omega-3 fatty acid. The biscuits do not have any artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and the ingredients are grown without the use of genetic engineering. When you feed your dog an EVO treat, you can be confident that he is getting quality nutrients

Innova HealthBar Baked Treats for Dogs

Just like their food products for dogs, Innova treats are made with fresh whole ingredients. This is because Innova understands the importance of providing not only food, but also treats that are nutritious and healthy for your pet. The lean turkey and chicken meats used in the HealthBar treats are of the same quality you or I would eat. Whole ground grains also contribute to the nutritional benefits of the baked biscuits. Additionally, these treats contain essential vitamins, chelated minerals, and the Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. When you feed an Innova HealthBar biscuit, your dog is munching on a scrumptious, nutrient rich treat.

The HealthBar treats are available in a 4 lb re-closable bag.

Mr. Barky's Vegetarian Dog Biscuits

Mr. Barky's biscuits are produced by PetGuard, a company focused on designing natural alternatives for a healthier environment. The recipe was originally a secret that only Mr. Barky himself got to enjoy. But when Mr. Barky passed on, his owner shared the secret recipe with PetGuard. Now dogs everywhere can enjoy the same crunchy, delicious biscuit that Mr. Barky once loved.

The highly digestible treats are made with whole grains and unsaturated fats. They do not contain animal by-products, artificial colors, artificial flavors, added sweeteners, salt, or sugar.

The biscuits are available in a 26 oz box.

Nutro Dog Biscuits

For over 75 years, Nutro has been formulating foods for pets, and the company strives to make quality treats as well. Using only the same natural ingredients found in their foods, Nutro fortifies their biscuits with vitamins and minerals. You will find no by-products or corn in their Max Mini Bones, Natural Choice Tartar Control Biscuits or their Natural Choice Chops. The Natural Choice Chops are created with minimal ingredients to lessen the risk of digestive upset for those pooches with food sensitivities, and the Tartar Control Biscuits are fortified with vitamins A, E, C, K, and B as well as Zinc and Manganese to help promote oral health.

The Max Mini Bones are available in a 23 oz box, the Tartar Control Biscuits are available in either 21 oz or 60 oz boxes and the Natural Choice Chops are available in 23 oz or 60 boxes.
