Tasty Tuesday – Newman’s Own Organics from Chewy

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.

One whole cookie and half a cookie.

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 KONG Genius. His name is “Leo” apparently.

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. :)

Thanks Chewy!

Review: Canidae TidNips from Chewy.com

Today we have some super tasty treats to tell you all about. Our best buds at Chewy.com sent us (and by us I mean Petal) some yummy lamb treats made by Canidae. Back when Petal was a puppy she ate Canidae kibble with Lassie and Ella before we switched to Sojos and then homemade and now, temporarily, The Honest Kitchen. So we’re pretty familiar with the Canidae brand.

We received Canidae’s TidNips treats to review. TidNips are soft, chewy, meaty squares. They can easily be torn into smaller pieces (for training and/or small dogs) but don’t crumble.

They come in the following three flavors…

Canidae TidNips treats come in the following 3 flavors: Lamb-Licious, Meaty-Licious and Chicken-Licious

As I said above we received the Lamb-Licious treats to try. I wasn’t totally sure of what Petal’s reaction would be to these treats as she hasn’t had much lamb in the past. I was sure she would eat them, rarely does she stick her nose up to a treat, but I wasn’t sure how interested she would be in them.

She LOVED them. Loved them. I used them as her high value treats for “sticky situations” (seeing other dogs while out walking) every morning for the past week and a half before I ran out (and promptly bought more). Rarely could she resist these treats. 95% of the time she stops barking and tugging towards the other dog in favor of this treat. She has been walking much more politely around other dogs lately. Now this isn’t all due to the treat (though having a high value treat for high stress/distracting areas IS important) of course, I’ve been working with her on this issue for awhile now, but these treats have been a great help so far.

Drooling in anticipation.

These treats are stinky enough to get Petal’s attention, but not so stinky that I cringe. They have almost a jerky-like scent. They’re corn, wheat and soy free. They’re made in the USA. Canidae also has a line of crunchy treats some of which are grain-free for those of you that are feeding a completely grain-free diet.

So far I have found that Chewy.com has the best prices for these treats ($5.79 on Chewy vs. $7.99 at Petco) especially if you’re already purchasing your dog or cat food from Chewy and spending enough to earn free shipping.

All in all we were very happy with these treats and have no complaints about them. Highly recommended!

Review: True Chews from Chewy.com!

Today we are doing a review of True Chews from Chewy.com!

“Open it, oh Thumbed One!”

The lovely folks at Chewy.com sent us 1 bag of Lils pig ears and 1 six inch bully stick to try.

 photo petalchewyreviewtreats.png

The Lils pig ears are for dogs 20 lbs and under. In our case they made the perfect sampling size!
There were three ears in the bag plus one teeny tiny one.

They’re a pretty decent size. I bet a small dog would be in heaven and get lots of chewing time from it. Lassie and Petal finished them off in under 5 minutes. They LOVED them. I loved that they’re made in the USA. But the little hairs still on the ear made me cringe. My dogs have had pig ears before (usually when I take them to a pet store and they snatch one off the shelf or I tell them to “pick something!” That’s what they usually go for), but I’ve never noticed little hairs. Then again, I’ve never looked too closely either. 😉

They’re a very messy treat. I was glad I had Petal and Lassie (trust me he got some, in fact, he got 2 of the 3; I just didn’t get any decent pictures) eat them on the kitchen floor/their dog cot.

“Licking crumbs off the floor is a little difficult with an overbite.”

I gave the bully stick to Petal, since Lassie got 2 of the 3 pig ears.
It was a very thin little bully stick and it only lasted her about 8 minutes! Six inch bully sticks usually last my dogs somewhere between 20-60 minutes depending on thickness (yes, I hear you giggling ;P).

Thin little bully stick.

These bully sticks would be perfect for little dogs/dogs that aren’t strong chewers at all. They wouldn’t be worth the money for us though. I expect the pricey chews to last a minimum of 20 minutes. This didn’t even last half that.
On the plus side, I didn’t notice any smell and I sat right next to Petal as she ate it.

Lassie & Petal give the pig ears 3 1/2 out of 4 paws up for deliciousness and being made in the USA. They’re a little pricey though.

Petal gives the bully stick 1 paw up. It was tasty and made in the USA, but it was gone in a flash; not for strong chewers.
 photo pawprintrating2.png

While I wouldn’t buy True Chews’ bully sticks for my dogs, I would happily buy any of their other treats, and I do think their bully sticks would be the perfect size for soft chewers/small dogs.

Of course Chewy.com still has all our love. Our package arrived promptly and the goodies were packaged well.
The dogs get excited when a package from Chewy.com comes. Even the cats come running to see if it’s their usual order of food.

Review: Orijen Freeze Dried Treats from Chewy.com

 photo Chewy-logo.png

I love Chewy.com and was thrilled to work with them again for this review.
Chewy.com has many brands of pet food to offer. They also offer treats, toys, clean up supplies, leashes, collars, and much more.
My favorite thing about Chewy.com would have to be their customer service. I order our cat food from them (it’s so much cheaper at Chewy.com than anywhere else, another plus!) and have had to contact customer service on two occasions and both times they were very prompt and incredibly kind. They didn’t make me want to pull my hair out and they didn’t make me feel like it was my fault.

Chewy.com asked us to review Orijen Freeze Dried treats.
Chewy.com offers Orijen’s dog food, cat food, and dog treats. Orijen’s foods and treats are made in Canada.
We were sent the Original flavor of their freeze dried treats. Here’s a description of them from Chewy.com:

No lazy lap dogs here… these treats are just for the rough-and-tumble, ready-to-wag pups. Orijen Original Freeze-Dried Dog Treats are filled with tasty chicken, turkey, and flounder to provide your pet with a protein-rich snack that’s made without any preservatives, fillers, or artificial flavors. Each grain-free treat only has seven calories, and is freeze-dried to lock in all of the nutritional content and flavor. 5 Star reviews across the board!
Key Benefits

  • Made with high-quality protein sources
  • Preservative-free
  • Grain-free
  • Low-calorie, freeze-dried dog treats

They’re basically the dog equivalent of cat nip (or crack).
My dogs went insane for these treats.
I’m not kidding. I could probably train them to back flip for them.
Look at this crazed look Lassie got in his eyes:
 photo musthavelass.png

And Petal, or Miss Talks A Lot, is more quick to end her loud conversations (complete with obnoxious “dancing”) with neighborhood dogs when I bring these treats on our walks. Which quickly made them a five star training treat in my eyes.

 photo patiencepetal.png

Even Petal’s picky friend Pepper devoured half of one and then demanded the other half. This dog usually won’t take any dog treats from me.

They’re soft treats. You can easily pinch smaller pieces off of it. They crumble easily and would probably work well to bribe finicky eaters to eat their dinner. That also makes them a bit messy though, but my dogs will happily lick up every last crumb.

They don’t have a super strong odor (which is a big plus), but they aren’t something you want to go inhaling deep breaths of. Unless you’re a dog, of course.

While my dogs love how these treats taste, I love that they’re high quality and the ingredients are simple:
Cobb chicken liver, turkey liver, boneless Cobb chicken, boneless turkey, boneless flounder.

That’s it! That’s all that’s in them.

They only down side to them is, they are rather pricey. Though I suppose that’s to be expected for a high quality treat.

The dogs give them 4 out of 4 paws for deliciousness.
 photo pawprintrating2.png photo pawprintrating2.png photo pawprintrating2.png photo pawprintrating2.png

I give them 5 out of 5 hearts for their high quality.

And 4 hearts for cost.

Overall, we really loved these treats! We would definitely buy them and recommend them to our friends. Next time you’re in need for a high quality training treat, head over to Chewy.com!
