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.
Chicken Hot Dogs.
Chicken, water, salt, sugar, paprika, sodium erythorbate, spice extractives, garlic powder, sodium nitrite. Stuffed in natural sheep casing.
(Not pictured) Beef jerky.

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.
