  • Great Small Treat for Special Rewards!

    By on

    All four of my Doxies LOVE these treats! They run to me as soon as they see the package in my hand. They are small and easy to chew, as my oldest Doxie has only a few teeth remaining and has difficulty with large, hard treats. I like that they are lower in calories and if there are broken pieces left in the bottom of the package, I mix it in with their food. They all love the taste of Duck...so these are by far one of their favorite treats!

  • Nature's Variety is amazing

    By on

    I switched my dogs to nature's variety limited diet duck dry and wet food a couple of years ago. They get these as treats. Nature's Variety has truly changed my two yorkies. They are super healthy, energetic, and as playful as puppies. My smaller one had problems with loose stools and my other had allergy issues. We went through lots of different foods. And this is a match made in heaven. Great quality food. And it's small enough for a 5lb yorkie. They go crazy for these treats, my cat even loves them!!

  • Wonderful treat

    By on

    I hadn't tried duck before but find that my dog thinks the duck is as good as the chicken. Wished there were more choices - I use both the duck and chicken as training treats and they are great.

  • Great training treats and mix ins. :)

    By on

    We bought these for my 7 year old lab and my 2 year old staffy mix. These two are very picky and won't eat dry food or treats. We introduced them to these and they loved them! They started to eat all their food! With my 2 tear old staffy, we are working with her and training. She will only eat these treats. I will need to be buying these at least every 2 weeks! They go by so fast! Definitely recommend

  • They are okay

    By on

    The treats are very mini and a lot of the ones in the bag I received were in crumbs. My dog was not really that excited about them. I'm not all that thrilled about them. If you are looking for a treat for like a mid morning or afternoon snack, these are not the treat to buy. I am not really sure what I would use these treats for. They say for training on the bag. I did not realize that when I purchased.

  • My dogs love these.

    Small enough to give often as a reward. Ingredients that are healthy. They don't crumble or melt in your pocket. My dogs would do anything for these treats. Even sit still on the grooming table!

  • Great product!

    By on

    Actually give to my cat. Checked ingredients & exactly the same. For some reason, for cat version sold at a higher price. My cat would eat entire bag in one setting! Actually have to store in a zip lock bag & hide so she doesn't chew a hole in original packaging! Can't feed to her brother though, he loves it too, but vomits back up. He's a Siamese & has a more delicate stomach. Highly recommend!
