  • My dog loses her mind over the Backcountry treat products

    By on

    Not much to say except that I've never seen a dog sit and stare at the Backcountry bag for minutes until she gets one. It's her favorite treat.

  • Huskies love em

    By on

    My two huskies go crazy for these treats. I give them each a quarter of the treat seeing as how each stick of jerky is about 6 inches long. Great product!

  • Definitely a Favorite

    By on

    Luna loves these treats, I tried to buy others that are similar when I can't find the Merrick Back Country Jerky but she won't eat any of them. The ingredients, smell and apparently the taste (that's coming from Luna) are clearly different then similar products on the market. I definitely need to stock up on these!

  • He loved them

    By on

    You can clearly and plainly see that this is real chicken jerky. Again, I would have liked to see more than 8 in a bag but I'll probably buy again. Goliath loves them.

  • Real Chicken Jerky is TOPS!

    By on

    My furbabies LOVED this product! In fact, it was gone so fast, I will need to purchase it again and buy more than the 1 bag this next time. I have 3 so it went very quickly and they thought it was delish!

  • Good overall

    By on

    I'd purchased these before locally on a whim and the dogs liked them so I decided to get them from Chewy.com w/ my auto-ship. This jerky was a little more dry/crunchy than the first bag I had bought so I ended up putting a piece of bread in the bag and that softened them up enough to cut into strips to stuff into the puppy's Pickle Pocket.

  • My Dog loves these

    By on

    I have a 2 year old Great Pyrenees and yes he is spoiled. When I first gave them to him he was hooked. He absolutely loves them. He loved them so much that I left the bag downstairs and he grabbed the bag and tore it open to eat the remaining three pieces left in the bag. All I could do was laugh at him.
