Primal Pork Liver Munchies

Happy Easter!

I hope you’re spending the day with loved ones and enjoying the  beautiful weather. ♥︎

We recently went to Europe (which is why I haven’t blogged in ages) and while we were there, my friend Melissa watched Teton for us. She always takes the most amazing care of him; I never have to worry about what he’s doing or how he is  because I know he’s having a blast!

While Melissa had Teton for us, she made this:

Teton Paw Print

And she made an adorable bracelet for me with Teton’s name on it. You might think you have a good dog sitter and I might be biased, but I think mine is the best. 😉

Last month, our buddies at Chewy.com sent us a new treat to test and now that we’re back I want to tell you about it!

Primal Treats 4

These are Primal’s Pork Liver Munchies freeze-dried treats for both dogs and cats. (I love it when treats can be for both, don’t you?)

This 2-ounce bag ($6.99) is loaded with freeze-dried treats containing just one ingredient – pork liver.

Primal Treats 3

They’re nice and smelly, so Teton loves them and your dog probably will, too. However, they’re definitely not as smelly as some other treats we’ve reviewed, so if you have a sensitivity to ultra-stinky treats, these likely won’t be an issue for you.

Primal Treats 1

I really love that these treats only have one ingredient.

Teton

Teton and his little chompers (!) like these treats, but they don’t seem to be his favorite. That is, he doesn’t go quite as nuts when I pull out this bag as he does with other treats. One issue that I have with them is that, because they’re freeze-dried, they stick to his teeth and the roof of his mouth, which bothers him a bit. But, that may not be an issue for your dog. 🙂

As far as freeze-dried treats with limited ingredients go, Primal’s line of goodies is high on the list! Check out their assortment on Chewy.com here.

Barkworthies Elk Antler

Happy weekend, Dog Moms and Dads!

IMG_9911

This little guy says hello. ♥︎

A few weeks ago, the kind folks at Barkworthies sent Teton an elk antler to review.

Barkworthies has quite the assortment of chews ranging from bully sticks to pork chews to  moose, elk, and deer antlers. Since Teton has tried a lot of different chews in the past, I wanted to see what he’d think of an elk antler since he hasn’t had one for five or more years.

IMG_9827

I requested a large split elk antler, which means that the antler is between 4 and 5 inches and has exposed bone marrow. As I said, Teton has had antlers in the past, and I remembered that he wasn’t as interested in the non-split antlers as he was in the split ones.

IMG_9828

Barkworthies antlers are naturally shed, sourced from the Rocky Mountains, and are one of the most durable chews you can get for your dog. Many dogs will happily spend hours working to get the marrow out of an antler. Because of this, they aid in dental hygiene as they clean your dog’s teeth while they chew.

IMG_9850

Teton was very curious about this chew at first. He licked and sniffed it a lot.

IMG_9847

Once he found the marrow he gave it a few minutes of gnawing…

…and then he walked away and laid down.

#uninterested

So…plan B. I brought the antler to my friend to give to her dog, Copper.

IMG_6302.JPG

And he’s been obsessing over it ever since.

Some dogs just don’t like antlers. And, we all know that Teton can be a little picky when it comes to chews.

For us, chews like the Earth Animal No-Hide Chews and the Himalayan Dog Chew will be our go-tos, but for your dog, especially if he or she is a voracious chewer, antlers are definitely worth trying! They can be on the more expensive side but they last for a very long time and will do great things for your dog’s teeth and gums.

Thanks to Barkworthies for letting both Teton and Copper try your elk antlers.

Merrick Power Bites

Happy Sunday from these two chuckleheads.

kyra-teton

Yep, we’ve got Teton’s lady friend Kyra for a few days. ♥

I’d love to say that these two posed organically for this picture, but they were really hoping I’d drop one of these new treats from Chewy.com on the ground. 😉

treat-1

Merrick Power Bites are available in four flavors on Chewy.com, but we got the beef recipe because cows.

power-bite-close-up

These bite-sized little treats are soft and chewy, which makes them perfect for any size and any age of dog. Just give more or less depending on your dog’s size!

As with all Merrick food and treats (they’re one of our favorite brands!) these are loaded with great ingredients like beef, potatoes, carrots, apples, blueberries, and rosemary extract.

You can tell they smell good to Teton and Kyra because, well…

Wellness WellBites Treats

Happy New Year!

We rang in the New Year by doing some of this:

wellness-5

And munching on some of these:

wellness-4

Our buddies at Chewy.com sent us these Wellness WellBites treats and Teton his been thoroughly enjoying them for the past few weeks.

These soft and chewy treats are made with simple ingredients like beef, turkey, chickpeas, carrots, potatoes, and apples (to name a few).

wellness-1

Like many soft treats, Wellness WellBites are easily broken if you’d prefer not giving your smaller dog the entire thing. This also applies to those of you who are watching your dog’s weight. 😉

I appreciate any line of treats that come in a variety of flavors, and these come in a ton! Check out all the flavors here.

teton-1

I’ll be reviewing lots more treats this month so be sure to check back soon!

ACANA Lamb & Apple Treats + Shirts for the Dog Lover in Your Life

Hello! Where is that waving emoji girl when I need her? That might be my second favorite emoji of all time. 😀

It’s been a hot minute since I blogged. Yikes. Between Thanksgiving, some traveling, and getting sick, I am happy to home for the rest of the year and looking forward to the holidays!

img_8733

Today I’ve got a new treat to share with you from Chewy.com. Check out the ACANA Lamb & Apple Dog Treats.

img_8798

Oh,  yeah. That bag is open. And we’re about through the darn thing because Teton and his cousin Henley Pretzel have been gettin’ DOWN on these treats.

ACANA’s freeze-dried treats come in a handful of flavors including the one we tried – lamb & apple. I have to say, we got the most tame of the flavors because two of the others are pork & squash and mackerel & greens!

img_8800

Not many ingredients in these little nibblers. We ♥ that! They’re also made in the U S A. Winning.

In my experience, freeze-dried treats are almost always a favorite for any dog. They are easy to chew and digest (it seems) and they smell super strong and delicious.

img_8802

These treats are super awesome because they are small (and easily broken to make even smaller pieces) which makes them both great treats on their own but also fun little sprinkles for the top of your dog’s food. (Sometimes we like to treat ourselves with sprinkles in this household.)

ACANA’s line of freeze-dried treats is available here at Chewy.com. They’d make a great stocking stuffer for your pup!

Ok, warning. Severe selfies ahead.

One of my favorite things to shop for and review are dog products for humans. You know…shirts, mugs, keychains, art, that type of thing. So, being that Christmas is right around the corner (seriously, people, get your shopping done before it’s too late!) I wanted to share with you a few recent purchases and one gift that may just be perfect for the dog lover in your life.

img_8709

Exhibit A. This tank from Wags & Weights. Describes my life. Is amazing. The end.

img_8795Exhibit B. This sweatshirt. A birthday gift from my homie (thanks, girl!). Also describes my life. Available here on Etsy.

img_8786

Exhibit C. This shirt that I clearly needed last weekend when I was visiting my bestie in Arizona. Available here from Farfetched Apparel, along with a zillion other adorable shirts and goodies.

Ok, selfie time has concluded.

I’m off to drink from this, my new favorite mug.

See you next time for some more Christmas gift ideas for that dog lover in your life!

Caru Venison Recipe Baked Bites

Happy Wednesday! This week I am thankful for a short week, being that this Monday was Labor Day. I was ready for the weekend yesterday.

Over this last weekend, we had Teton’s cousin, Baron Henley Von Pretzel (Henley P. for short) for a sleepover.

t-h

All weekend long, he and Teton munched on these Caru Venison Recipe Baked Bites.

caru-4

Never heard of Caru? I hadn’t, either. But, they’ve won me over with their story. Also, Caru means “to love” in Welsh. ♥

These soft, easily digested treats are made of just a handful of ingredients including venison, blueberries, and cranberries. And you know Teton loves blueberries.

caru-3

All of Caru’s treats and food are made in the USA of human grade ingredients. In addition, they’re made only in small batches to ensure the best possible outcome in their finished products. Something unique to Caru is their responsible packaging. Caru’s stew line is packaged in Tetra Pak cartons which are made of 70% paper!

caru-stew

(Review to come on Caru’s Real Turkey Stew.)

While Teton and Henley P. tried the venison flavor of Caru’s Baked Bites, there are a multitude of flavors you can choose from, depending on your dog’s favorites. Some intriguing flavors include wild boar, duck, and alligator!

caru-1

Teton is significantly bigger than Henley, but these are great treats for any size dog because you can easily rip them apart to feed more or less. Henley P. sometimes rejects treats but it’s safe to say that he considers these “high value treats” because he never once refused to take one from me. 😉

teton-caru

Teton, either.

You can find Caru treats and stews through the find us page on their website.

Check out their Facebook page and Instagram, too! I ♥ Instagram.

Big thanks to Caru for sending us these high value treats to try out. 😀

Check back next week for our review of Caru’s Real Turkey Stew! Nom.

Natural Balance Wild Pursuit Dog Treats

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday

Teton had quite the social calendar this weekend, so both he and I are looking forward to a lazy Sunday. 😉 He’ll be snoozin’ all day and I’ll be doing my typical Sunday things…laundry, cleaning, and cooking. It’s actually usually a pretty relaxing day for me.

All week long Teton (and his pals) have been munching on these new treats that Chewy.com hooked us up with.

Natural Balance 4

These are Natural Balance’s new Wild Pursuit treats. We got the lamb lung variety but they are also available in venison lung. Made with just one ingredient – lamb lung – these treats are grain-free, full of protein, and extra crunchy. They also smell just plain awful which makes them very, very tasty for your dog.

Natural Balance 1

Both the venison and lamb lung varieties are available in a 2.5-oz bag and are on sale for $6.69 on Chewy.com. Teton has been getting 1-2 of these little nuggets a day and we have a lot of life left in our bag!

Noms

Teton

More, please?

Check these out if your dog likes dehydrated treats! They’re a great option.

Happy tails…
