LOVE the ingredients - wish there was no dairy tho.

These appear to be excellent treats. The ingredients are minimal and healthy. I so wish my dog wasn't allergic to dairy as I know he'd love these, but the cultured skim milk included in the ingredients, although generally a very nutritious addition, makes them a no go for my boy. It's so hard to find food and treats that contain no chicken, egg or dairy - so many have at least one of these ingredients and often two. He is allergic to all 3 of these items so we use novel p[proteins for him and rotate proteins often to minimize risk of further allergies developing. Lamb and buffalo are great protein choices and two of his favorites.
Dog Would Not Eat Treat
on Oct 25, 2018
I have an 8 month old Goldendoodle that will eat EVERYTHING - literally. I was very excited to try this treat based on the ratings, however, when I opened the bag and tried to give our dog this treat multiple times, he spit out the treat each time. I then gave him two other soft/chewy treats that I received from Chewy and he scarfed them down. I don't know what it was about this treat, but it was $10 wasted. I would not buy again.
Great treats, and (surprisingly) beef free!

Merrick has gotten really bad about stuffing their products full of chicken and beef, cheapening them and making them completely unsuitable for dogs with allergies. I was excited to see they started making sausages again, especially when I read the ingredient list and found NO BEEF (the usual filler added to lamb products)! My dog loved Merrick's individually-wrapped sausages, and she goes nuts for these slices, too. They are expensive, but a great high-value treat for training or special occasions. Highly recommended, but keep an eye on the ingredient list when you buy new bags. I can't trust Merrick to keep them the same for long anymore.
He will work his tail off for these!

I do a lot of training for tricks with my pup and these are absolutely a favorite for him. He thinks he's getting human table scraps when these are offered and he gets super excited to work for them and that is awesome! They can be torn apart fairly easy which is great for training. I just noticed that the first picture on here that shows them in the bag is not really how they look so I figured I better put that in my review. They actually look like the 4th pic down in the white bowl.
A treat Hannah 'asks' for!

Good Treats, a little Tough
on Sep 14, 2018
The treats have a more jerky-like consistency to them that I was not expecting, however my dogs love them!
Kids love them

My dogs love them so much. They went nuts over them. When it's treat time they are flipping out. Amazing
My guys love them!

What's not to love about these buffalo sausage treats. I have to limit how many they get daily or else the whole package would be gone in one day.
