Before I get to posting, just a heads up that I’m playing with photo and text size on Her Dog Blog. Bear with me as it make look different from post to post. And feel free to let me know what you like or don’t like!
Welcome to Tuesday. It’s not any better than Monday, is it?
The bag didn’t stay sealed long enough for me to take a photo of it intact. Teton and his cousin Henley P. could smell these treats the instant I pulled them out of the box and lost their little minds so of course I had to rip it open to let them have a taste. :-)
Primal Venison Lung Puffs are made of one ingredient – venison lung. These treats are dry roasted and sourced from animals raised in New Zealand without added hormones or antibiotics.
This 1.75-oz bag will run you $6.99 and has the potential to last quite a while.
You see, these treats can be fed whole or can easily be broken into smaller chunks, thus prolonging the life of the bag.
Primal has a complete line of dog and cat food on Chewy.com that includes a multitude of other treats as well as freeze-dried food.
Teton likes these treats so much that he straight up drools when I grab the bag. I think they give him good energy for runnin’ at the dog park, too.
Dr. Tim’s Natural Turkey Chips are comprised of just one ingredient – turkey hearts. They are the size and shape of dehydrated banana chips (which are also safe for your dog!) but are relatively soft and chewy so they are perfect for young and old dogs alike.
Chewy.com carries these treats in a 4-oz container for $14.37. While this may seem a bit steep, I believe that this particular container will last us 2+ months with my feeding Teton about 1 of these chips per day.
I had never heard of Dr. Tim’s before Chewy.com sent me these treats for Teton, but they have a nice little assortment of food and treats for dogs and cats.
Well, I hate to blog and bounce but I have the day off since it’s Labor Day and I’m out to enjoy the sun!
(This is me giving my mom the stink eye and the Elvis lip.)
Our good friends over at Chewy.com sent Teton a swag bag of treats and snacks and fun stuff and Teton shared with me, in exchange for a review, of course. We’re familiar with Merrick, as I eat Merrick dog food, so we volunteered to try Merrick’s Brauts-N-Tots!
Brauts-N-Tots are fun, braut shaped crunchy treats. Love a short ingredient list! Beef, sweet potatoes, potatoes, and carrots are the first ingredients. They are also grain free and gluten free, if you are looking for those kinds of snacks.
My mom usually only gives me one at a time, because I’m only about 14 pounds and don’t need a lot of treats. I tend scarf down soft treats, but I like to take my time with the crunchy ones. These treats are delicious. The only complaint is that they tend to break up in the bag, so by the time you get to the bottom of the bag, you have more half brauts than full brauts.
(My Auntie Shannon thinks they look more like something that came out of the cat box, but I don’t mind!)
I think I still prefer soft treats, but I definitely like these when I’m looking for something to crunch on. Merrick’s Brauts-N-Tots are available at your local pet store or on Chewy.com, on sale, for $4.49! Thanks for sharing, Chewy and Teton!
I like giving Teton a dental chew 3-4 times a week because it keeps his teeth nice and clean and his breath smelling, well, less breathy. I’ve been alternating between Greenies and Zuke’s Z-Bones so when Chewy.com offered to send Teton a bag of Natural Balance Dental Chews we were happy to give them a go! After all, variety is the spice of life.
Natural Balance Dental Chews contain a short list of ingredients (the ones we tried – Pumpkin & Chicken Meal with Papaya – are made of pumpkin, potato starch, papaya, chicken meal, parsley, alfalfa, and a small handful of other things) and are constructed in a manner that encourages your dog to take his or her time in chewing them. That’s where the teeth cleaning comes in!
It takes Teton about 7-8 minutes to eat one Natural Balance Dental Chew, which is about the same as a Zuke’s Z-Bone but a good 2-3 minutes longer than a Greenie. (Yes, I’ve timed him.)
(And yes, I’m a crazy dog lady.)
Natural Balance Dental Chews come in a variety of flavors and they even offer a vegetarian version. I’m willing to bet your dog will like any flavor. ;-)
If you’re looking for dental chews for the first time or want to mix it up and give your pooch something different, give these chews a try. They’re on sale now at Chewy.com.
About a month ago the folks from Bully Stick Shoppe contacted me to see if Teton would like to try some of their bully sticks. Teton loves a good bully, so of course I accepted their generous offer.
Bully Stick Shoppe has been selling bully sticks for over 5 years. They pride themselves on their high sourcing standards which include only selling bully sticks that are grass fed, hormone free, and free range. I like Bully Stick Shoppe because they have an easy-to-shop selection of bully sticks from the US.
Bully Stick Shoppe sent Teton two different types of bully sticks to try – the Thick & Jumbo Bully Sticks and the Braided Bully Sticks. The Thick & Jumbo Bully Sticks are made in the US and the Braided Bully Sticks are from Brazil.
The Thick & Jumbo Bully Sticks come in either the “thick” or “jumbo” size, 5-inch or 12-inch pieces and in singles, a 25-pack, or a 50-pack.
(The “jumbo” bully sticks are the three on the far right and the others are considered “thick.”)
