Blue Buffalo Santa Snacks

It seems like every year around this time, we get one of Teton’s favorite holiday treats…

Blue Buffalo’s Santa Snacks!

They look a little different each year, but this version is baked with oatmeal and cinnamon and they look and smell great. You know, if you’re a dog or a helicopter dog mom. đŸ˜‰

IMG_2214

Along with oatmeal and cinnamon, Blue Buffalo Santa Snacks have pumpkin, flaxseed, and carrots in them.

But the best part about Santa Snacks is the adorable shapes they come in.

‘Tis the season, so if you’re looking for a fun holiday treat for your pooch, check these out on Chewy.com! Teton loves them and his cousins and friends do, too!

Don’t forget to sneak a peak at Chewy’s Holly Jolly Holiday Shop for your pets, too. Shopping for Teton’s stocking just got easier!

Happy tails…

This is 10

On November 17th, Teton turned 10.

IMG_2204

He’s living his best life.

It turns out that November 17th was National Take a Hike Day, which is fitting being that his name is Teton. đŸ˜‰

Teton’s Auntie Morgan made him a birthday crown and he got extra treats, extra walks, and extra snuggles that day.

He also got a new snack from our local pet food store, Mud Bay.

From the Dogs Love Us brand, these are Dog Love Snapeas in the peas and beef variety.

Made from limited ingredients – peas, brown rice, and dehydrated beef and sunflower oil seasoning – these treats look and feel like your favorite and mine, puffy Cheetos.

IMG_2220

I expected Teton to love these, as he is a big fan of Bark Pops, but these aren’t as light and airy and it seems like he doesn’t have as easy a time chewing them, unfortunately.

Dogs Love Snapeas are made from such a short list of ingredients and are very reasonably priced (under $6 a bag) but Teton isn’t a fan so I likely won’t buy them again.

Later this week, we’ll review an old favorite from Blue Buffalo!

Lately, With A Side of Bacon

Lately, we’ve been doing a lot of the following:

IMG_2054

Pumpin’ iron…

IMG_1980

Walkin’ (rain or shine)…

IMG_2058

And gettin’ our snug on.

It’s been great.

Teton’s treat of choice lately is made of your favorite thing and mine, B A C O N.

Pet Naturals of Vermont Crispy Bacon Superfood Dog Treats

These new-to-us treats from Chewy.com smell (and, I imagine, taste) like bacon and are made of up of oats, kale, flaxseed, pumpkin, and a bunch of other great ingredients.

Made in the United States, these treats are on the small side which means the 8.5 oz bag has a whopping 120 treats inside!

IMG_2104

At first glance they look to be a softer treat, but while they aren’t hard like a biscuit, I definitely don’t think they are moist. Teton has no issue eating them but if you need a super soft treat for your pup, this might not be the very best option.

Pet Naturals Superfood Treats come in three flavors – Peanut Butter, Crispy Bacon, and Homestyle Chicken. With flavors like that, I don’t think you can go wrong in picking one out!

IMG_2103

These treats are a great option for any sized dog and would make an excellent training treat if you’re on the lookout for that!

Now, we’ve tackled the walk portion of our day so it’s time for the snugs!

The Smelliest Treat I Know

Hello, Dog Moms and Dog Dads.

Tonight’s treat is the smelliest I’ve ever encountered.

IMG_1881

Naturally, Teton loves them.

IMG_1896

These are The Honest Kitchen’s Wishes Fish Filets and wowee they’ll clear the room.

Made from one simple ingredient – dehydrated white fish (which, what does that even mean?) – these crunchy strips make for a delicious snack for dogs and cats.

IMG_1897

The Honest Kitchen’s Wishes Fish Filets are pretty large but, if you’re brave enough, you can snap them into smaller pieces depending on the size of your pet!

IMG_1898

If you are a brave soul, I recommend washing your hands about 16 times after holding one of these.

IMG_1900

Your dog will love you for it.

IMG_1917

Smell aside, The Honest Kitchen’s Wishes Fish Filets are a great option for dogs that love fish and gravitate toward dehydrated treats.

Dr. Tim’s Natural Oxtail Chips

HUMP DAY!

Today’s treat is once again brought to you by Chewy.com and may make you squeamish.

Yep, here’s another doozy.

IMG_1819

Dr. Tim’s Natural Oxtail Chips Genuine Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Treats

Oxtail is literally the tail of a cow, so…here we are.

I’d never seen oxtail treats before so I didn’t know what to expect, but Teton was extremely curious when I opened the bag.

IMG_1826

Dr. Tim’s Oxtail Chips are, like their tripe counterparts, made in the U.S.A. with 100% beef oxtail from Wisconsin cows.

Also like the tripe, the oxtail comes in a variety of sizes. We found that most were quite large and not easily broken.

IMG_1823

However, some were on the smaller size and likely better for small to medium sized dogs. (I can’t imagine a cat eating these…)

IMG_1824

I offered a smaller oxtail chip to Teton’s cousin, Henley Pretzel…

IMG_1828

…who was unable to eat it because it was quite hard.

Now, Dr. Tim’s packaging says you can soak these oxtail chips in water to make them more tender. We didn’t try that but it’s good to know for those of you with dogs that have sensitive teeth and gums or smaller dogs that have a hard time with hard treats like Henley.

While the idea with oxtail is that the cartilage helps to clean your dog’s teeth, these treats were too hard for both Henley and Teton. I let Teton work on one for a while but the crunching sound it made didn’t sit well with me (helicopter mom) so I made the decision to take it away.

Dr. Tim’s Natural Oxtail Chips aren’t for us but I do think they’d be just fine for large dogs and those that are aggressive chewers. The oral health benefits are outstanding and based on Teton’s interest in the treats, I imagine most dogs will jump at the chance to give them a try!

Dr. Tim’s Natural Clean Tripe Treats

I know what you’re thinking. Tripe? Insert vomit emoji here. Yes, tripe is stomach lining and that seems gross, but it has a number of benefits:

  • high in protein
  • contains digestive enzymes and probiotics
  • rich in fatty acids
  • minimally processed

IMG_1791

One of the best ways to get tripe into your dog’s diet is in the freeze-dried form because it’s less messy and doesn’t smell horrendous (but still smells delicious to your dog).

Our first experience with freeze-dried tripe was Dr. Tim’s Natural Clean Tripe Genuine Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Treats.

Dr. Tim’s tripe treats are made in the U.S.A. with 100% beef tripe from Wisconsin cows.

IMG_1795

The 4-ounce bag (available on Chewy.com for $13.99) comes filled to the brim with a variety of sizes of tripe “chips” that can be fed to either your dog or cat. I like that there are large and small chunks so you can pick which is right for your pet based on their size and appetite.

Case in point, Teton might get a few chips while Henley Pretzel just gets one.

IMG_1780

Speaking of those two, they both ranked Dr. Tim’s as a high value treat. đŸ˜‰

We have another Dr. Tim’s treat review headed your way later this week, so stay tuned for that.

Goody Box Grain-Free for Dogs

Hello, friends!

IMG_1716

Teton and I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and that you squeeze every last drop of that wonderfulness out before tomorrow comes. ♥

This morning, we met a great friend and her dog and walked a local trail, then had a tasty coffee and breakfast together. Friends and dogs and coffee. The little things truly are the big things, aren’t they?

Speaking of big things, I’m really, really excited to tell you about this F U N new product from Chewy.com…

IMG_1736

Meet the Goody Box Grain-Free Box for Dogs!

Goody Boxes are specially curated boxes for Chewy.com for either dogs or cats. They come in eight varieties – four for dogs and four for cats.

I’ve always been intrigued by the monthly subscription boxes out there but these are far more appealing to me because you don’t have to many any sort of commitment when you order them. Each box costs $19.95, ships for free, and is filled with tons of goodies!

IMG_1737

When I say tons of goodies, I really mean tons of goodies.

The booklet inside each box has information on what’s inside…

IMG_1738

I was pretty surprised to see how full the box was!

IMG_1740

Here’s what was inside our Goody Box Grain-Free Box:

IMG_1741

A package of Solid Gold Superfoods Turkey, Sweet Potato & Cinnamon Grain-Free Chewy Dog Treats

IMG_1742

…something from one of our new favorite brandsNulo Freestyle Grain-Free Duck Recipe Dog Training Treats

IMG_1743

Merrick Power Bites Real Texas Beef Recipe Grain-Free Soft & Chewy Dog Treats, which we already know we love

IMG_1744

…something new and exciting from K9 Natural – Meat Mates Beef Meal Mixer Freeze-Dried Grain-Free Dog Food Topper

IMG_1745

…yep, there’s more – Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredients Diets White Fish & Sweet Potato Formula Flaked Grain-Free Wet Dog Food

IMG_1746

…and last, but certainly not least, this tiny adorable Hartz Bug Eyes Dog Toy.

This box is legit. And all the Goody Boxes look legit!

There’s one for small dogs called the Tiny But Mighty, a Made in the USA box which has products entirely from the USA (whereas the Natural Balance food, for example, is made in Thailand), a Happy Birthday box (I die), and of course, the Grain-Free box.

I love the idea of gifting this box to a friend’s dog for their birthday or to a new dog or cat owner who has adopted from a local shelter or rescue. What a fun gift both to give and receive! It could be especially fun for new pet owners to help them figure out some brands their dog or cat may like.

Big thanks to Chewy.com for hooking us up with the Goody Box Grain-Free box this month.

Teton had a few of the Nulo treats after his long walk today and we’re excited to give the K9 Natural Meat Mates topper a try. We’ll keep you posted on how it is!

Happy tails…
