Oh, just give them a T-bone.

The hard little twig-like things on the left are Bacon Flavored Jerky Treats for Dogs. They cost $16.36/lb. The juicy plump things on the right are Koegels chicken hot dogs and cost $1.99/lb.
Let's look at what we're getting for our money, shall we?
Bacon sticks dog treats – Jerky Treats For Dogs!
Meat by-products, soy grits, sugar, dextrose, glycerine, salt, hydrolyzed soy and corn protein, natural and artificial bacon flavor, natural smoke flavor, potassium sorbate, oil of garlic, natural flavorings, sodium nitrite.
$16.36/lb
Chicken Hot Dogs.
Chicken, water, salt, sugar, paprika, sodium erythorbate, spice extractives, garlic powder, sodium nitrite. Stuffed in natural sheep casing.
$1.99/lb
(Not pictured) Beef jerky.
Beef.
$6.00/lb

When you think about it, just buying pure jerky is insanely cheaper and more sensible than buying “bacon” jerky treats which a: are not actually jerky, and b: have “natural and artificial” bacon flavor as the 8th ingredient.
Or for a fraction of the price, hot dogs are more healthful with way less junk in them than most dog treats. And, my dogs think hot dogs are doggie crack & aren't as enthusiastic about most dog treats, not that they get them often.
Or you can buy those preservative soaked meat flavored twig things for $16.36/lb.
Now, don't you feel stupid (and manipulated by clever marketing) for ever buying "dog treats"? I do.
