At least I think they are delicious, I haven't actually tried them but my dogs indicate that they are delicious. They make good treats for training as they can easily be seen on dark surfaces and the dogs can eat them quickly and get on with their training. You can crumble them up on top of their food also.

I got this product because I really enjoyed the Instinct Raw Boost treats in the past. Typically I have gone with the bigger sized treats, and not the minis. I really recommend the regular size treats vs. the mini treats. I found these treats to be really crumbly and about 90% of them were powder. I do believe the issue was primarily shipping these treats in the same box as a 30 pound bag of food. Overall, these just crumbled too much to use. Odor wise, it was not very strong, but it was still present. My dog loves these, but I found that my hands get so dirty and disgusting when using these treats. Their a reasonable size, and the ingredients are to die for, I just wouldn't recommend buying I got this product because I really enjoyed the Instinct Raw Boost treats in the past.

My boys can't get enough! No more doggy junk treats. So glad I can find treats from this brand on Chewy.com!!
Awful Crumbly Treats

These treats are my least favorite product that I have ever bought. They turned to dust in my treat pouch. If you have any slobber on your hands, they will disintegrate. I wish I could give these a 0 star. They completely ruined a training outing I had because they turned to dust.
My dogs favorite treat.

My Silky Terrier loves the Boost duck formula. Getting it from Chewy.com was so quick and so much cheaper than in the stores. I'll continue to get his food and treats this way.

Our cats love them and sit and wait to get them. We keep them in the refrigerator.
Great Small Treat for Special Rewards!

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!
Happy to find this flavor!

Our ll week old lab loves the duck flavor. It's something different from the usualy beef and chicken. She's had beef, chicken, and lamb. These are hard to find, so I'm glad Chewy sells them!
Freeze dried treats

Instinct Freeze dried treats can not be beaten. I train all my dogs with these and they are great. Small enough not to spoil meals, they are easy to carry and my dogs love them.

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.
