The Honest Kitchen Beams Dehydrated Pure Iceland Catfish Skin Sticks Dog Treats
All natural chew that will have your pet BEAMing in delight
This is one tough fish skin chew. We got a box of TALLS. Each piece was about 10 ~ 12" long, and each box was generously stuffed with at least 10 pieces. Both of my dogs devoured their stick with gusto. The more vigorous chewer (30 pounds) finished his in about 5 minutes, while the daintier one (20 lbs.) took twice as long. With its hard texture and ridged surface, it seems like a great dental workout.
While the product does smell very strongly of fish, at least there's no mistaking the ingredients -- pure Icelandic fish skin, which is sustainably caught, I might add. My dogs generally do well with fish-based products, which is part of why they have such great skin and coats. This product is not terribly oily or messy though... not that the dogs so much as a crumb to clean up.

Nothing but fish! Rawhide replacement!
My German Shepherd loves rawhide, but I don't like that it may contribute to bloat. I was looking for an alternative treat that will keep him occupy long enough when I clip his nails. Beams is one such treat. He loves it and it is strong enough to keep him busy for 5-10 minutes while I groom him (he is a power chewer). The tall is a good foot long - hard to store, so I cut it in half - works fine.

Dogs like it
My dogs like this product. One has an allergy to red meat, so I can't use raw hide. These last for quite a while since my dogs are all chihuahuas.

It is horrible.
This treat has the consistency of hard thick rubber. I could not break off a piece for my small dog. I had to use big serious scissors to cut it. When I gave it to my dog, she didn't know what to do with it.

Stinky but my dog loves
The course of actions my dog took the first time she got one:
Take quickly from me, run off to her bed.
Put treat in her bed, proceed to roll on it head first.
After she rolled long enough, or was hungry enough, settle down to eat.
First one took her about 45 minutes to eat. She must have learned the trick, since they take less than 5 minutes to eat now. On the other hand, she will take this over any other chew we give her, and the only thing she will ignore for these is her food from Orijen, which she actually bounces for. These then get placed securely in second place in her mind, so for $8 does the quantity meet quality? Yes, yes it does. This will be ordered quite a bit.
I got the small bag, it contained a BUNCH of fish skins, although most are super skinny, it still has a bunch. This is certainly quality -and- quantity, and I am thankful for Chewy allowing me to find these.

Long-lasting chew for my little ones!!! They love them!!
My Yorkie boys can't wait for these! I originally ordered the long ones, but had to slice them in half. These are better for medium to large dogs. So, I ordered the short ones, and they are fine for my guys. My guys are on the larger side, both over 15 lbs. They cry and whine and bark as soon as my hand touches the package!!! Best chew treat ever!!!!

Dogs LOVE them
My dogs love these so much, they caused a fight over who got to lick the floor where they were eating them. They stink like fish a little but that goes away quickly. They are awesome and healthy for the dogs to chew on. So much better than rawhide.
