I’ve Created a Monster + Ziwi Peak’s Deer Shank

Teton is the ultimate treat snob. Perhaps I should say instead that he has a refined palate.

You’d think with all the snow we’ve had in the Seattle area and the extra energy he exerted playing in it he would want ALL THE TREATS, but that hasn’t been the case.

(Contemplating treat snob tendencies.)

The treat snob himself got a drool-worthy treat from Chewy.com this month – Ziwi Peak’s Deer Shank Bone Dog Chew.

ZiwiPeak Deer Shank

This chew, made of venison shank bone and beef esophagus, comes in either a full or half bone. We opted for the full bone because Teton is 40 pounds and your average medium-sized dog so I prefer giving him larger chews to eliminate some of the choking concern. (Of course, dogs can choke on bones of any size so you should always watch them regardless of their size and the size of the chew.)

IMG_2555

Ziwi Peak’s Deer Shank Bone Dog Chew is made in New Zealand from free-range, grass-fed sources. It’s full of nutrients from the bone marrow, itself, and assists with dental hygiene since it’s a heartier chew.

Teton was 0% interested in this chew, so we hope his buddy Copper will enjoy it.

(Not interested, Ma!)

I think Teton is the exception to the rule on this one and that Ziwi Peak’s Deer Shank Bone Dog Chew will be a big hit with 99% of the other dogs out there. If your dog loves a good chew and you’re looking for a safer alternative to rawhide or want to mix things up with a new flavor, give this a go!

What’s your dog’s favorite chew? We’re always looking for new treats so if you have any great ones, send them our way!

Happy tails…

CANIDAE Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits

It’s hard to believe that January is almost over!

Teton and I have enjoyed every bit of this month and the beautiful weather we’ve had here in the Pacific Northwest during our walks.

img_2444

It’s been cold, but sunny. Can’t complain.

We also can’t complain about this month’s treat from Chewy.com.

Teton’s been munching on CANIDAE’s Grain-Free PURE Heaven Biscuits in the bison and butternut squash variety.

img_2421

I enjoy both bison and butternut squash, myself, so I hoped that Teton would like these treats!

img_2422

I love the limited ingredients in these treats and all the flavors look equally tasty.

Teton was interested in these at first…

img_2424

…but they haven’t turned out to be his favorite.

I’m not sure if that’s because of the flavor, that they’re a harder treat, or because he’s picky when it comes to treats. đŸ˜‰

img_2423

But, we’ll work our way through this bag, I’m sure.

I like that I can break these treats in half easily (you can see the line down the middle of each biscuit to assist with this) if I don’t want to give Teton a full one or if he is sharing with his smaller cousins or pals.

If your dog likes a hearty, crunchy biscuit these are a great option!

Check out all the CANIDAE’s dog treats here.

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.

IMG_2381

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!

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!
