Dried pig ears??
We started giving our two GSD's dried large pig ears as treats and they love them. Its like dog crack. My question is are they OK, I don't want to give them anything that may harm them. And if not any ideas on good treats (preferably all natural).

They're really fatty and I'd be careful of where they're sourced from. Don't feed anything from China. I wouldn't give them as an every day treat. Just something every once in a while.

I would stop feeding those. Dangerous preservatives, Salmonella and questionable sources are just a few of the risks associated with dried pigs ears.

Raw turkey necks and raw knuckle bones are great.

Any ideas about dried treats? I think they really like the jerky/crunchy/chewy texture of them. We have a grocery store here that sells all kinds of necks/feet/bones/etc.. I'll be buying some neck bones tomorrow.. No more pig ears for them.

I buy from a company called Nothing Added. They are dehydrated (no preservatives), locally sourced and the drums are cut off so they aren't greasy at all. They are fine, but get them from a good supplier. I give them to my dog all the time. Look for dehydrated raw suppliers. Definitely steer clear of anything from China
