Merrick Hungry Dog Value Pack Dog Chew Treats
super value for items inside
We have 6 dogs ranging from 30 lbs to 90 lbs. I adore this product because it is AMERICAN MADE and filled with a variety of noses, ears, chews and the like. Way more than 9-10 pieces for a bag, and if you pay a dollar for a pig's ear then you're getting great value here.
Some bags contain mostly huge pieces, some contain mostly small pieces. I stuff the small pieces in Kongs, so it's not a problem for me, and if you have a small dog like a dachshund, you might have to let them chew for a while and then take the treat up--some will be too big for one sitting.
I find there is typically one "heavy" item, like a hoof with the foot attached, or a tendon wrapped bone inside for weight.
Since I buy a case at a time, I open 4-5 bags and mix up the contents, so the "mostly large" bags and "mostly small" bags all even out for me.
Retail is 12.50 a bag, so with free shipping on larger orders this is a steal of a deal.
And nothing is from China.
We've used these products from Merrick for years and have always been very satisfied with them.
We train and show dogs as our livelihood, so we take their food and nutrition very seriously. I've never had a problem with Merrick products.

Nice bag of goodies
This bag of treats is a great value and had a decent assortment of things in it. The bag I received had two cow bones, 3-4 cow snouts, a pig snout, a pig ear, and 4-5 cow tails that I could actually give my dog. The downside to it for me was that included in the bag were two or three cow tails that were too small to give my dog. The other downside is that the cow bones weigh a lot so you get a lesser number of treats in the bag as a result. The treats included are definitely more geared for medium/large dogs. Again it is a great value but definitely a mystery as to what you'll receive, but at least you know what you're getting was all made in America.

Bag of excitement!
I get super excited to open these every time I purchase a bag. When they put the marrow bones or hooves in the bag, it really makes up a good portion of the weight, and that's the only downside of it. I rarely feed my dog marrow bones because she cracks off pieces of them, and they're high in fat.
The hooves are good if they don't contain the little bones, otherwise I have to dissect them and remove them otherwise they get swallowed.
My dog loves the wishbones, the bully sticks, the cow tails (although the bones in the middle scare me a little) and even more so, the puffed beef chews. I'm considering purchasing those in bulk if I can find them...

Great Value, Dogs Love It!!
I rescue dogs and breed Miniature Dachshunds, so I have ten dogs in my house right now! My dogs are very picky, especially the Dachshunds, so finding great bones for them that they like can be fairly difficult but they took to these like magic! Every one of my dogs ate at least one, except for my 4 week old babies. My only complaint is I wish there was a little more variety like bully sticks and so on in there as mine was mostly beef snouts but they loved them all the same! Will order this again!

I have a 5 month old Beagle pup and she LOVES these. You get plenty in each bag and they are cheap. They smell a bit funny but that is because they are all natural, no preservatives. It is quite funny when you pull them out of the bag as they are different animal parts and you never quite know what you are going to get. My pup is only 23 lbs. and each one lasts her a good day or so.

Having 3 Miniature Pinschers who love to chew, I'm always on the lookout for a bargain, but it has to be from the USA.
My dogs are 8-13lbs, so some of the treats were actually half the size of my dogs, especially the hooves. I gave those to a friend who has a german shepherd. But the rest of the bag was full of stuff that they loved.
The treats are more geared for medium-large dogs, but if you're willing to give away a few, you're still getting a great deal.

My dogs get so excited when the see me open this bag!
I have a labradoodle and a schnoodle and they love and covet every treat! What a great variety for such a reasonable price. Every bag has so many treats, some they gobble, some they savor, all they enjoy! The price is a steal for so many days of treats!

This item is great for dogs with allergies. It provides a variety of chewing for teeth cleaning and boredom, with no side effects.
