Questions & Answers

3 Customer Questions

Some of the other Merrick treats have a recommended feeding amount (treats/dog weight per day). Is there a recommendation like that for these treats? Is there a calorie count to help customers compare?
Answer by ChewyAug 09, 2021
It is recommended to feed these as a treat, training aid, or regard for your dog. Serve treats responsibly as part of your dog's diet.

Are any of the ingredients from China?
Answer by ChewyOct 12, 2020
While all Merrick recipes are made in the USA, they do outsource a few ingredients from other countries. The Lamb and Venison in their recipes is sourced from New Zealand, the Duck and Rabbit are sourced in France, and the Vitamins and Minerals Premix are sourced in Canada and Germany. All other ingredients are sourced in the USA.

Are these treats supposed to smell really strong? My dog likes them, but I feel like they smell strong. Is this how they are supposed to smell? This is my first time buying them.
Answer by ChewyOct 06, 2020
These dog treats may give off a strong, pungent smell.

This one is a keeper!

My 3 year old german shepherd is extraordinarily picky about his treats. He's not a fan of crunchy biscuits like my other two always were and doesn't seem particularly interested in beef, duck or salmon. So my quest for chicken treats that he'll actually eat has been a long one. He has a few other favorites and these were a bit harder/crunchier than I expected. But as usual, he surprised me and really likes them! These treats will be a staple in his rotation - I can declare these treats - Marco approved!!!!

Not the same quality it used to be

I used to buy this for my pup & loved it - the last 2 times I've purchased it (from different stores), the quality is not the same. It used to have some chew to it - and was awesome for putting in Kongs for my pup... it breaks in half like it's stale and my dog won't eat it (she eats almost anything) so, even she knows it's not as good. Disappointed because I used to love it (my puppers too).

Surprising Favorite

I had not tried this brand before and am surprised at my little family's enthusiasm. These slices are easy to break into smaller bites for the chihuahuas, and they really enjoy them. The Boston terrier gobbles them, too. Will buy again.

dog loves these!

my dog is usually very picky with his food and treats but the moment i opened up this bag he sniffed and stuck his head inside of it to gobble up multiple at once will definitely be rebuying in the future

Always does the trick

My dog loves these treats so much, I use them when she’s off leash and needs a high value treat to curb naughty behavior (such as begging from people who have dog treats). No other treat will get her attention the way these do. They stink to high heaven, but that’s likely why my dog can’t get enough!

Delicious treat

My dog is picky about treats, but loves this one! My sisters dog liked ours so much that she’s buying them now too.

came moldy

I just got this bag delivered today, some pieces looked weird and I opened it up to find some pieces covered in a white substance. I’m guessing mold. Now I’m going to check all the other bags by this brand.

Bedtime Treat

We feed our dogs the Merrick brand dog food and wanted to keep them on track with just 1 brand all around. Found the Merrick treats and they are devoured in seconds when they are given to the dogs. We give them one of these before bedtime each night and I am pretty sure they go to bed with happy bellys. I am so glad that I have these on autoship.
