Our go-to treats are baby carrots (I usually just bite the end of a small one myself, and give each boy a very small bite), Emmet's kibble (he's on S/O for stones), T/D big bites (Wally has terrible teeth, and these are big enough so he actually has to chew them a little--I keep both the T/D and E's kibble in our "treat jar" on the counter), and finally, probably the most used: plain air-popped popcorn! They LOVE it...they go crazy when it's in the microwave--I have this great microwave air popper from Nordic Ware--they used to sell it at Target, but last year, I couldn't find it there so I ordered several from Amazon for gifts. (Looks like the price has gone down a little, too.)

Years ago, when E was first diagnosed w/ calcium oxalate stones, my research pointed to popcorn as one acceptable "treat." It's cheap, easy, relatively healthy (or at least not unhealthy) and low cal. Very Happy

I have been giving the pugs both melon (all types) and pineapple as an occasional treat. They both LOVE the fruit and done take it from me like a viper. But, Zukes Minis are still my standard (I tend to give a pretty large amount of treats daily - mainly because I need them to get out the door and I come and go all day long.)

We use Zuke Minis here too, and Grandma Lucy's cookies, but I break those into tiny pieces. Popcorn is a great idea, Lex!

I do wish I could give Penny popcorn - she asks for it, but when I give it to her, the gas that results would knock a buzzard off a dump truck five blocks away. I'm also off Zuke's since her pancreatitis ordeal - may have been the Zukes treats, may not have been, but I'm not taking any chances. Plus their response was, to put it mildly, off-putting.
