  • Dog loves.... but

    By on

    My dog loves these and the quality is excellent. I order them all the time because he loves them so much but every time you get a package you don’t know what you’re getting....sometimes there’s three inside sometimes there are seven sometimes there’s four... it’s very unpredictable. for the amount of money of this treat it should be a consistent amount in each package

  • My dogs like this!

    My dogs like these, but they are quite charred, I worry about the additional carcinogenic factors due to that, although Merrick is a high quality food brand, not sure I will buy again...but note the bag was quickly emptied!!

    My girl loves these treats! We break them up into small pieces and work on learning new tricks. I also break them up and put them in her puzzle games. She is happy and they are from a brand I trust so I am happy!

  • Great quality, but...

    By on

    These are definitely a special treat with limited high quality ingredients. They smelled so good to our dog, that she was trying to get to them even before I opened the bag. The only drawback is that there are only four patties in each package. They are however easy to break apart, which helps them last a little longer. I just wish the quantity was listed on the front of the package or in the product details.

    Had to find new treats as Clear Conscience discontinued their sliders. My Papillon has a very sensitive stomach so I was not thrilled to be looking for new treats. Tried the Merrick Steak Patties and he loves them - no stomach issues! I now have also tried the Lamb Venison Jerky and the Turkey Sweet Potato Patties - same result! My dog loves them and no stomach issues!

  • Picky Poodle

    By on

    Our miniature poodle is extremely picky. Bags of recommended, grain free expensive treats have been given to all our dog loving friends. But these we keep. He loves them. We break them into smaller pieces for him. And now when we ask if he wants a treat, he sits at attention.

  • Something different

    By on

    These were a huge hit for Isabel, I was easily able to break off a piece to give her. The ingredients are great and they smell like meat. The only downfall would be my 4oz bag only had 4 patties, kinda expensive at $1.83 per patty.

    This is a great product that my dog can digest easily! I cut into small pieces while I'm fixing or eating dinner... she gets a piece thinking it's "people food". Since she likes to beg she gets a tasty dog treat as we don't let her have table food. Always fresh and moist.
