Plaid Pennie Dog Treats

IMG_2819

HAAAAAAAAY MACARENA!

Hi there, friends. Long time no blog. Like, a real long time. Oopsies.

Teton and I are happy to be back today to share one of his newest most favorite treats with you.

IMG_2980

These…

IMG_2981

…are Plaid Pennie Dog Treats!

Available in a myriad of awesome flavors like Peanut Butter Love, Cranberry Crumpets, Goat Cheese and Basil, Maple Waffles, or the one we scored – Trainer’s Treats – which are made of oats, cheddar cheese, peanut butter, and chicken, Plaid Pennie treats are baked fresh, taste tested, and vacuum sealed before they’re sent off to you!

Plaid Pennie packaging is a delight to open. And, having tried more dog treats than your average person, getting these in a vacuum sealed bag with clear labeling, detailed ingredients, and instructions on how to best store these treats speaks volumes to the quality of the product.

As you can see from the photos above and below, Teton is pretty into these.

IMG_2984

I can’t say that I blame him because, well, I love oats. And peanut butter. And cheddar cheese.

But, I also think I want to try, er, I mean I want Teton to try ALL THE FLAVORS!!!

I mean, look at this spread.

Plaid Pennie tastes all of their recipes personally before evaluating them in a laboratory for protein, fiber, fat, and moisture specifics.

I wouldn’t know anything about testing dog treats before giving them to your dog. đŸ˜‰

I really love the Plaid Pennie Trainer’s Treats for Teton because they’re soft enough that he’s able to easily chew on them, but hard enough that they don’t crumble in my hands or in the bag. They smell like little chunks of peanut butter so it’s not long after I open the bag that Teton is at my side with his best begging face.

In addition to their great spread of flavors, Plaid Pennie offers three and six month subscription and the opportunity to create a custom recipe for your dog(s).

If you’re on the hunt for a fun new treat that’s pretty darn unique, check out Plaid Pennie!

Big thanks to the folks at Plaid Pennie for sending us a bag of the Trainer’s Treats to review.

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!

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!
