    I agree with Fletch. I used to buy these all the times. The last shipment I received was off and I bought two bags. My dog even noticed the difference. When opening the bag, there was a strange smell. The treats never used to smell bad, and now they do. They leave a strong odor on your hands. The jerky pieces aren’t as smooth when breaking them into smaller pieces, instead they fall apart. The quality is no longer the same and I am curious as to what happened. Will not be buying these in the future.

  • Changed the recipe and there are bones in the treats

    By on

    I had these autoshipped for years, and noticed in the last few months that they were no longer typical jerky strips that looked like pure meat. There are strange chunks in there now, they're hard, smell very bad, and I just found out that at least some of the chunks are pieces of BONE. Purina recently bought Merrick and I'm concerned that they're changing their recipes or production practices to reduce costs, making this a low quality treat that I'm not comfortable feeding my dog anymore. It's really too bad because my dog is very picky and he LOVED these treats. Would not recommend these treats.

  • My Babies LOVE These!

    By on

    My dogs are my babies, and I want to give them only the best! They loved these treats. I love that I don’t have to worry, if they don’t like them, I didn’t waste my money. Chewy stands behind everything they sell. If they didn’t like them, I would get my money back. That’s why I’ve shopped for them with Chewy for about two years now and plan to do so forever!

    Our Shih Tzu, Boomer, LOVES these treats. The online delivery was quick and the product was fresh. I put them up on a counter to keep Boomer from ripping open the bag...he LOVES 'em.

    Treats are quite hard and have some sharp edges. Will get something that is a bit softer next time. Won't buy again.

  • My Morkie Adores These!

    By on

    These treats are chewy and come in long strips. I break off one-inch pieces as "rewards" for my Morkie's good behavior. He gets so excited that he prances around me while wagging his tail and shaking his little rear. They are made of real chicken, a healthy treat, and they last a long time. Just an aside: I am beginning to order more and more products from Chewy.com, as their Customer Service goes above and beyond excellence!

  • Yum yum yum!

    My mom found these treats at Chewy.com and, man are they delicious! I can't wait til she opens the bag and doles out the jerky! I actually won't eat any of my other treats until this one is all gone. The only bad part is that there are only about 5 sticks in the bag. Please don't run out .......and, thank you, Mom!!
