Questions & Answers

Do these treats break easily. I have 3 small dogs, so they wouldn't get a whole one, I would need to break them.
Answer by ChewyMay 08, 2018
These treats are semi-soft so they can bend without breaking.

Flavorful Limited Ingredient Treat

These were surprisingly limited in ingredient and just the right texture for my pug. They are not super soft and chewy but also not a crunchy hard treat. Great for breaking up for training or stuffing interactive chew toys.

Grain free treats

Thank you for having such a great selection of grain free treats. My dog Bones loved all the treats I would get her. Unfortunately we lost her this week to cancer.

Glad we tried this flavor

Minnie loves these treats. We buy only Merrick treats and she loves all of them. This was a risky one since she has never had them but gobbles them up.
