I love lamb. Oh, this is Petal, by the way. My human doesn’t like lamb. Her tastes aren’t as refined as mine. But I love lamb. It’s my favorite meat and I’ve tried a lot of meats! Fish is my … Continue reading

Woof! Hello! Petal here with a tasty treat review for all you canines. If you like a good crunch then you’ll love these treats!
These are Newman’s Own Organics dog cookies. I got the lamb and barley flavor. I love lamb, which Mom thinks is weird because I was bred to herd and protect sheep. What can I say? I like what I like. Anyway. These cookies have some other great ingredients too: Organic Barley, Organic Lamb, Organic Carrots, Organic Apples, Organic Palm Oil (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Organic Molasses.
All organic ingredients! Yummy!
These cookies are rectangle shape but are scored down the middle making them easy to break into two square cookies.
While they are a breeze to break in half, it is impossible for my (weak) human to break them any further. Which is PAWSOME because that means I get a whole square! But sometimes my stingy human snatches the bigger crumbs that I drop while we’re walking and makes me do extra tricks for them. She claims she only does this so that I can walk and eat at the same time AND still get to eat every last crumb, but if that were true she wouldn’t make me do more tricks for them.
Yeah, that’s right, I’ve got you all figured out Momma.
My rotten Momma also likes to hide my squares in my KONG Genius. Something about keeping my naughty self busy.
I don’t know what she could possibly mean by THAT, I’m an angel.
I do love my KONG Genius though. Being a Collie, I’m a natural born Genius, so this toy is a wonderful challenge for me. Pair it with these cookies and I’m busy for quite some time!
Overall, I love these cookies! Mom usually gives me one after every walk (she’s going to stick to the training size crunch treats for during our walk) and one in my KONG Genius when I need some busy work to do. If you’re interested you can find these treats on Chewy.com! Tell your human to order you some now while they’re on sale for $3.99! And don’t worry little dogs, Newman’s Own has some smaller sized treats if these are too big for you.
Discloser: We were sent 1 bag of Newman’s Own Organics dog treats from Chewy.com in exchange for a review. We were not and are not being compensated for this review. All opinions expressed here are my own based on my personal experience with the product.
All of Petal’s hard work modeling for Valentine’s makes her deserving of a great treat, don’t you think? Petal certainly thinks so and I do too. One of her favorite treats is a KONG stuffed with yummy stuff. She loves to have a banana frozen in her KONG with a little bit of peanut butter. She loves to have yogurt, veggies, fruits, her regular meals and anything else I can think of in her KONG.
Last week I made her a KONG with the following:
- strawberries (sliced into small pieces)
I threw 4 ounces (somewhere around 350 calories worth (I worked it into Petal’s daily meal allowance, you may want to do the same)) of cooked organic white buckwheat into a bowl with 1 banana, about 3 or 4 cut up strawberries and a few raspberries. I mixed and mashed it all up and made a yummy grain-free snack.
Did you know buckwheat isn’t a grain? It’s a plant from the rhubarb family. I learned that from Kol’s Notes (thanks guys ;)). I would’ve assumed buckwheat to be, well, wheat. It is not.
I was able to stuff (completely full) 1 x-large KONG Classic (for Petal, though technically she should eat from a large size, but whatevs) and 1 large KONG Extreme (for Penny) and I still had a large spoonful left over.
Next time I’ll freeze it to make it more challenging. I didn’t this time because Petal hadn’t had breakfast yet (it was cooking in the oven) and I made this to hold her off.
Did it work?
Yes. Yes it did. It kept her happy, busy and her belly fed until her food was done cooking and cooling.
Do your dogs enjoy KONG treats? Do you freeze them or serve them unfrozen? What is your dogs favorite KONG stuffing recipe? We’d love to hear them in the comments!
