    Great Treat for our Italian Greyhound

    By Munichchick on Apr 30, 2019

    Our little 10 lbs guy has a very sensitive tummy and many things don't agree with him. We are using Backcountry Freeze-Dried Salmon and the Chicken version as treats and he LOVES this as his treats. Great for training and special treats throughout the day. Wonderful addition to his 2 meals per day. He has loved the Chicken version for a few years now and we just tried Salmon for the first time and he goes crazy over it. Highly recommended for a small slim dog.

    Meal Mixers

    By Wags on Mar 24, 2019 top1000Contributor

    I used these as a meal mixer with kibble. If I had used it as a whole meal, it would’ve only lasted a few days! I got these on sale when Chewy had the big bags for $7! The only downfall is that they are a little crumbly and sometimes my dog turned her nose up. Maybe it was just her mood. Other than that my dog ate it and liked it.

    Everyone loves it!

    By VickyT on Jan 10, 2019

    I add to my 75# Dobermans dry food...she thinks it's such a treat! My 11# Dachshund also gets it....AND now, (and I know it's for dogs), my kitty cat insists on having a few pieces of Merrick's freeze dried salmon! Total wine!

    Fantastic training treats!!

    By Melanie on Dec 9, 2018

    I use these as training treats for my 6 month old, and she goes nuts for them! The bag is rather big so it lasts for quite a while and ends up being more economical in the long run than purchasing multiple small bags of freeze dried treats. Definitely a new favorite!

    Excellent product if a bit overpriced

    By DWatson on Oct 14, 2018 top25Contributor

    I have one EXTREMELY picky eater! I was lucky to get a large bag of these while they were on GREAT sale. I have a very picky eater who insists that his breakfast be sprinkled with "topping" (dinner gets Honest Kitchen or Grandma Lucy's "gravy"). Freeze dried liver that's been given a whirl in the food processor until it will easily sprinkle out of a shaker container is one of our common toppers along with other freeze dried raw meat or meat and organ blends. A common complaint in the reviews here are bags that arrived with too many crushed pieces. Those people will be shocked to know I poured the bag into my food processor and then into a shaker bottle! My picky boy was one HAPPY DOG when I served I have one EXTREMELY picky eater! I was lucky to get a large bag of these while they were on GREAT sale.

My picky boy was one HAPPY DOG when I served his breakfast with a few shakes of this on it (about half a teaspoon - a little goes a long way!) A 12oz bag will last us at least 3 months and my airtight shaker bottle that you can find in the spice section of large grocery stores or food service stores keeps it fresh. We'll be trying other proteins in the future. I took off one star for price but you can't beat the nutrition and the quality - real, biologically appropriate food with the most minimal processing possible and nothing unnecessary or artificial added. The way we use it - to get high quality kibble into our dog - also makes one 12oz bag last a minimum of 3 months. … more

    Dogs love but it's too messy

    By Jesycamarie on Nov 13, 2018

    My dogs love it and will beg for it. The problem i have is it's extremely messy. I'm not sure if i just got a bad batch but my package was a few inches of dust in the bottom and i was unhappy with the amount of actual treats. Maybe if i had gotten a package that wasn't 33.333% dust i would've loved it but mess vs. benefits was low.

    My dogs love, love, love

    By Erica on Nov 25, 2018

    Ever since I got this, my picky eater dogs have decided they are no longer picky eaters. I sprinkle a large spoonful over their food and they can't wait to eat! I also use it as a treat to get them in from the yard. Works like a charm! Highly recommend this product!

    By Calalum on Jan 7, 2019

    My 3 GSDs love this kibble. I’ve tried different flavors and they’re all winners. The dogs all have beautiful coats and loads of energy.

    Great addition to morning meals

    By Jennifer on Dec 11, 2018 top500Contributor

    I started adding a handful of these to my dog’s morning meals and he seems to be even more enthusiastic about eating. I like that they are high in protein since he is very active.

    Yummy commercial raw

    By Katie on Sep 29, 2018

    High quality, good food topper/mix in. A few packages came in very powdered, but Chewy was quick to replace them (amazing customer service as always!). I would recommend these, but I'm not sure I could justify the full price cost of them. I was able to purchase several bags when they were on sale, so it was a great buy at the sale price!
