Bones & Chews Freeze-Dried Dog Treats

First of all, how great of a brand name is Bones & Chews?

IMG_2377

I haven’t met a dog yet (Teton included) that doesn’t L-O-V-E freeze-dried treats. They are extra smelly, soft yet slightly crunchy, and easy to digest.

Bones & Chews All-Natural Beef Recipe Freeze-Dried Dog Treats check all these boxes and boast a limited ingredient list, which is a bonus.

IMG_2380

Inside each of these delictable bite-sized nuggets is beef, beef liver, beef tripe, a preservative, and some natural flavors. And that’s it!

While I love giving Teton one or two of these treats by themselves, my favorite way to give them to him is crumbled over his dry dog food.

If you have a dog like Teton, every now and again he isn’t interested in eating. Normally this doesn’t bother me (he has plenty of food options – trust me on that) unless, of course, he also isn’t drinking. Sometimes, though, we’ll head out for a hike or a super long walk and I want to be sure he has some energy. These Bones & Chews freeze-dried treats are perfect for enticing him!

I like this particular variety of freeze-dried treats a lot because they’re perfectly sized for a medium dog like Teton but they crumble with just a bit of pressure if I want them to.

Bones & Chews has two varieties of their freeze-dried treats on Chewy.com now – beef, which is what we tried, and chicken. Give them a go if you need something new for your pupper, especially if they’ve never had a freeze-dried treat!

Happy tails…and Happy New Year!

Blue Buffalo Santa Snacks

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

IMG_2213

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.

IMG_2216

‘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.

IMG_2217

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!

Happy tails…

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.

Happy tails!

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.

Happy tails!
