Rated 3 out of 5 by MaggieinVA Average with reservations
My labradoodle has food sensitivities and is limited as to what we give him for snacks. I home cook for him. He loves this product, Tranquility Natural Jerky treat. So imagine my disappointment with my last bag of jerky, each strip had mold on it the size of a quarter. The expiration date still had 1 year left to go! I'm going to try again, but I'll be inspecting carefully. If not, I won't be buying anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chimommy The ONLY treat my dog will eat!
This is a great product, as are all Blue Buffalo products. However, these are an absolute godsend to me because my dog is over the top selective on everything she eats. She's a Chi mix, so she high strung as well. I can get her to do just about anything for one of these, and I give her half a piece before bed and it keeps her calm through the night. She could typically wake me 3-4 times a night, but after one of these, we both get a good night's sleep. Should these ever be discontinued, we will both be brokenhearted! VERY expensive, but worth it.

by SenoritaMackey Not sure they're worth the price
I started buying these back in late spring, when they were $7 a bag. Now the price has shot up, making them about $1 a jerky. My Min Pin absolutely loves these though. They are the only treat she is ALWAYS excited to eat. And they actually work; she is asleep within 10 minutes of eating half a jerky from a Kong.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Annie2015 Stale or recipe change?
Wonder if anyone else has had this issue. I've gotten 3 bags of Tranquility from Chewy and the treats seemed stale. I could literally crack them in half and my dog, who normally practically knocked me over to get one, sniffs them and won't eat them. I returned a bag and got a new one... same thing. Then I went to PetSmart and got a bag there. SAME THING! Did they change their recipe? These were always softer and chewier and now they're hard as a rock. Bummed out as these came in handy before vet visits and grooming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeniorMom52 My Dogs Love These
My Beagle is very picky especially about treats. He has never enjoyed jerky, but he absolutely loves these although he is older (14), and he is beginning to have dental issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Arkansas70 Use these as a reward
My Yorkies love these! Yes, the price continues to rise everywhere. I used to get them much cheaper and that's why I'm ordering them here automatically each month. Yes, I agree with the comment that they previously were soft, chewy and in general a better product. Yes, I have friends who also report finding mold and having to return the product even though the date was not expired. I've tried Tranquility, Jolly Joints and Exuberance. All three are now very tough and crunchy. Not what one would expect from a first rate company like Blue Buffalo! Because of the expense, I break them into bite size pieces - 4 in a stick - and only use them when the girls successfully go outside to potty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Allieroo Love that it's all natural and good for my dog
My little doxie loves these treats so much. Just wish they'd come in bigger bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog27 My Standard Poodle loves these
So far, I've ordered two of these packages and they have both been just soft enough to break into smaller pieces, but still hard and chewy enough to force my Standard Poodle to sit down and take a few minutes to chew them up. At first, she was so excited that she swallowed the smaller pieces without chewing them first. Now, she is still very excited, but will sit down to savor them. Sometimes, she does seem to calm down after eating it, so it may have a calming effect. Time will tell -- my dog is still a puppy.
