Rated 5 out of 5 by KittyCatMommy Little dogs can manage these too.
We have 4 dogs. One is an 8 pound pom. One is a 15 pound frenchie/chihuahua. We recently adopted two puppies that are a mix of husky/pug/beagle, and are currently tiny, and we have no idea what size they'll grow to.
We've been buying these value bags for the 8 & 15 pound dogs for the last two years. Our dogs manage to chew every single one of the bones found in these bags, and they LOVE THEM ALL!! There is no bone too large unless MAYBE your dog is like 2 pounds. But even then, all bones can be gnawed at least a little bit.
We love the variety and have been able to try things I'd of never purchased, and found that our dogs really enjoy them, such as the stuffed hooves and the tails.. The stuffed hooves are one of the smelliest things we give our dogs, they REEK. They make your dog REEK. They make the blankets they are chewed on REEK. I only give them to the dogs every few months, just before a bath and laundry.. Everything else in the bag isn't as bad smelling, and I'm willing to give to my dogs frequently.
All in all, these bags are a great value for dogs of any size, and you'll get to try(and smell) things you may not have thought of trying(and smelling) before! Our dogs adore them and we adore the price and variety. :D

Rated 3 out of 5 by Neelagirl54 Interesting goodies, but...
I was expecting biscuits, was surprised to see contents were actually tails, ears, etc. The main item was half of a bovine (I think) hoof. Interesting...good to see all parts of a processed animal being used. However, the preservative/plastic smell was quite overpowering. I have two dogs with distinctively different personalities and tastes; NEITHER dog would chew that hoof. They both smelled it, licked it, carried it around, but neither one would take a bite. As a matter of fact, it has been laying outside in the grass, in the sun, "seasoning" - still no takers, including ants and flies. Again, interesting. Don't think I'll take a chance and order this bag again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RebelRae Great for BIG dogs/Aggressive chewers
There are no bully sticks or trachea in these bags, we previously got a batch with a different variety of goodies from a diff online treat store.
I think the ones stocked in the same store have a good chance of containing similar items, whereas a bag from a diff store has a totally diff batch of treats...
In this bag there are pork & beef- whole hooves, ear canal(fist size or larger), dehydrated liver, bits of various rawhide chunks, & empty half hooves(the ones you get for a dollar @ tractor supply/wally mart).
This deal is worth it If you have big chewers. Our pitties, lab and mastiff-all pound pups- love them. The whole hooves(cow/pig leg cut on the lower ankle & smoked in entirety, including bone) Are about 8-9 dollars purchased alone & We ended up with 7 in the three bags I ordered! It takes my dogs a month to gnaw them down & get all the "good stuff" out.
Cheapest price for merrick 2lb bag compared to 16$ in other stores - Great deal, Great bag of yummies!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sadi127 great use of castoffs
I love when companies use the leftovers of the products they make and turn them into other useful items. This bag is full of odds and ends. Things I've never seen before! DEFINITLY worth the price for all the goodies you get. My ES is really enjoying her new snacks, will be buying this again for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Minihaha Mini doesn't eat anything except the goat hoofs
Or whatever they are? The worst smelling thing in the bag she likes. The rest she could care less about even if I dip the bread sticks or whatever they are in peanut butter she won't eat them.
Mini is a a Great Dane and treats need to be entertaining as well as yummy! She needs variety. She gets bored easily. A treat she liked yesterday she will spit out tomorrow.
If you have a really hungry dog that will it everything and anything maybe this econo pack is for you but it's not for us. I was hoping there would be some lamb lung or beef lung in the pack which is usually a hit but no.
Treats are so expensive and she such a big dog I thought this product might work for us but it turned out to be no bargin

Rated 5 out of 5 by annie Super bargain treats
You never know what you are going to get and tou do get lots of texas toothpicks. But the random hooves lungs n ears are an exciting treat for my pups. This is a very discounted collection of grade b appearance treats but is grade a in my 3 dogs' views. They range from 25 to 48 pounds and there is always something for everyone. Made in USA is so important safety wise

Rated 5 out of 5 by jillpilll Awesome Bag of Goodies!
I wanted to try something new for my dogs to keep them entertained. When I came across this variety bag and decided to give it a shot. The bag I received came with over 20 medium to large chews. My dogs have loved them so far!! I will be buying this product again. I would defiantly recommend for owners of medium to large dogs.

Baylee dog was not impressed with these treats. They were large, and VERY stinky! I was surprised as she usually LOVES everything Merrick. We'll stick to the Lamb Lung Treats, which she loves!!
