Rated 5 out of 5 by Vizzy Excellent Dog Food Roll Product!
I began using another Dog food roll from Pets***t to use as treats for training class per instructor suggestion; it worked very well. I also wanted to add a small amt crumbled on top of their kibble am/pm to encourage both of my dogs to get on the same eating schedule, BOY DID IT WORK! But I did some research on the ingredients of the 1st brand & although they weren't bad, RED BARN WAS MUCH BETTER. Ordered a roll, the LAMB due to allergies; & "WOW" THE DOGS LOVE IT!!!
It's much cheaper on Chewy.com than the 1st one I was using & RED BARN ingredients r superior! It is crumbly, but I see that as a bonus for what I'm using it for. I cut 1"/per day, cut into 4 pieces & crumble 1 piece per dog, am/pm on top of the Blue Freedom kibble. I've noticed they "hoover" breakfast & dinner, not a piece left. They dogs have lots of energy, stools r fine, & coats r soft, shiny & glossy. Of course switching to the Blue for my 3-yr old Wymreiner made a huge difference by itself, my Vizsla has been on it since I brought him home @ 11 weeks. He's going on 9 months now & still extremely happy w/Blue Freedom; this has just helped make his kibble a much more exciting meal for the dogs & I like the idea of them getting all the EXTR LAMB PROTEIN, especially the different ORGAN MEATS & THEY'R ON A GREAT SCHEDULE: 7AM/7PMm & since their kibble is still different (puppy vs adult), they eat their own food now. This was a great solution for me, w/great benefits for my dogs. My older dog was forever getting into the puppy kibble & consequently gained some unneeded lbs. so now he's on a restricted diet; have slimmed down his overall food intake & cut out 75% daily treats. But it's working!
After what 1 reviewer said, wanted to clarify; yes refrigerate after opening. Product can last 12 months on the shelf unopened according to mfg. Although I personally wouldn't want it left on the shelf for 1 yr. (This is clearly on the pkg; last resort a person can get on the mfg's website for any questions)

Rated 5 out of 5 by xoepaddy This product is great as hight value training treats!
I like to cut the roll in to segments about three inches long. I then take a segment and cut it in to small bits to use as high value training treats. The dogs love it! I freeze the rest of the segments and take them out as I need them to use. It's easy and it provides a lot of high value motivation, that is healthy too!

We cut this product into small pieces and use for training. This is our first purchase from chewy.com the product was fresher than when we purchase from Red Barn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogowner2 Great Training Treat
Our dogs and the dogs we train in classes all seem to love these rolls of food. We use a different flavor/type each time we train, and all the dogs love them! We cut them into slices and then into small bits to match the size of the dogs we are working with. They are a healthy treat and work well in obedience classes!
We don't cut the entire roll up at a time, for we don't want them to dry out. But cutting them up as needed works well for us. We refrigerate them after opening them up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocky2012 My dogs love it.
Since natural balance changed their formula I switched to red barn. Not only are the packages bigger but my dogs seem to like it more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sandyeggan a lower-fat & -sugar "dog food roll"
was using another dog food roll until a trainer friend told me to read the ingredients. was surprised to see sugar listed so prominently. switched to Red Barn and have been happy with the product. it doesn't crumble as much as other brands, and appears to have healthier ingredients (though I would not use any of the "dog food rolls" as regular dog food, only as treat)..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joy38 So far so good
I have 2 very picky eater dogs and they are doing pretty well with this as long as I add chicken to it. My only problem with it is that it is very hard to cut after refrigerating it.
