It’s been a while since I review dog treats so I thought now was a good time…
First up is Nutro’s Crunchy Treats (peanut flavor). Nutro makes all their food in the USA (although they don’t seem to specify where their ingredients actually come from) and don’t contain any “artificials” (flavor/color/preservatives) or corn/wheat/soy. They do contain relatively simple ingredients (ie. you can actually understand them): rice, oatmeal, chicken meal, peanut flower, ground peanuts, peanut oil, natural flavors and rosemary oil.
The treats are relatively small…about the size of a dime but much thicker. They would make good training treats for a larger dog as they only contain about 6 calories a treat (less than others we’ve tried). Unfortunately for us, they were a bit too rich for our dog (who has sensitive system at times). Therefore, I would be a bit wary of these treats if your dog has a similar constitution. They run about $6 for a 10 oz bag and can be found at most pet stores.
Next, is Fruitables Crunch Pumpkin Blueberry treats. I found these treats to be more expensive than some other brands but worth the price. They are also free of corn/wheat/soy/artificials and made in the USA…AND they smell amazing. The ingredients are: pumpkin organic oatmeal, pearled barley, potatoes, oat fiber, canola oil, brown sugar, blueberries, cinnamon, natural flavor, vanilla, mixed tocopherols. These treats have slightly more calories than the Nutro ones at just under 9 calories but they’re also a bit bigger.
These cookies are great at keepin our gal regular (not always an easy feat with a German Shepherd) and she just loves them. I highly recommend them. The only downside is the price…a 7 oz bag is just over $6 but worth every penny in my opinion.
